    Review À Courtship Rite 102 Courtship RiteA heartwarming tale of cannibalism and group marriageCourtship Rite is set in a lost colony stranded on a desert planet without much life above insects and somewhat regressed technologically with the exception of biology and bio engineering which is above present day levels The cultures that have developed are rather pragmatic about survival creches where children must prove themselves by a certain age or become food though not entirely without morality after all our protagonist's culture doesn't actually eat criminals when there's not a famine; only barbarians do thatA richly developed world with interesting cultural and societal developments

    Review À Courtship Rite 102 Courtship RiteSo on the one hand the writing is turgid the pacing is bizarre and the political lecturing interminable Also there is cannibalism did I mention the cannibalism on almost every page Spousal abuse and child rape both make appearances and are treated as the unexceptional actions of reasonable peopleAnd on the other hand I loved this bookPartly it's the culture Or cultures Geta is not a monoculture and its clans' beliefs freuently clash

    Review À Courtship Rite 102 Courtship RiteI just can't get into this book Perhaps it's that the writing is harsh and clunky at least to my mental ear There are points where a character says something and I'm jarred out of the scene asking huh Perhaps it's the characters of whom I like or care for noneIt's a shame for two reasons One the world Geta is potentially fascinating A harsh world most of whose flora and fauna is poisonous to human life A situation that has forced the development of ritual cannibalism and lives conditioned by the harsh needs for survival Secondly Kingsbury's Psychohistorical Crisis remains one of my favorite novels and I had high hopes for this oneIf I didn't have interesting looking books on my to read shelf I might have stuck with this one but I don't want to continue to waste my time here

    Review À Courtship Rite 102 Courtship RiteStoryline 45Characters 35Writing Style 35World 55Granted 2016 is not even half way over yet but this is the best book I've read this year If I had to give the review in one word fascinatingThe only information I had about this book when I began was a the author whom I did not recognize b the publication year and c its nomination and lack of award for the Hugo I recommend reading this without knowing much and I'll give the kind of review that won't spoil it for others More intriguing than any murder or detective mystery I've ever read is the puzzle of determining this book's genre As I progressed through the chapters I couldn't decide but I was mesmerized by the challenge Is it a fantasy world Are the characters human Is it an alternate history Far future science fiction Dystopia It was a remarkably engaging reading experience I was

    Review À Courtship Rite 102 Courtship RiteA five partner family in search of their sixth and final spouse is instructed to abandon a woman they love in order to pursue an alliance with a religious heretic The plot veers into political machinations which given the level of detail and bevy of headhopping I didn't really bother to follow It's a significantly successful vehicle for worldbuilding cannibalism and polyamory alternate human evolution advanced technology as indistinguishable from magic and a thematic focus on violence and the way that scale and social function inform our understanding of it But the real focus is interpersonal and while the dialog is freuently stylized to the point of stunted and the sexual politics dated despite some fantastic female characters the complexity of the dynamics individual to individual; within the group are phenomenal in their diversity and credibility A strange book and it took me ages to get through but I really appreciate those bits it g

    Review À Courtship Rite 102 Courtship RiteOK I didn't actually finish it I found it slightly confusing in spots and then it would get really interesting and then it would get confusing again The character build up was nice and the premise of the book was interesting I just kept finding other things to do

    Review À Courtship Rite 102 Courtship RiteA little known classic of the genre that blew me away when I read it 25 years ago The author does an incredible job of world building in the first part of the novel The characters are all well drawn and complex
