Karen wrote a wonderful review of a really good book and I accidentally
SaveAs-ed over it. The lesson that we can learn is that a template file
is a very, very good thing.
Anyway, it went something like this, although
not really. I only read it once. As Ra said to Thoth in the Socratic dialogs,
writing/reading destroys memory. And as Thoth should have replied, but
it sure is fun.
Description: again...Esen is a young
shape shifter / anthropologist, who does the unthinkable, she gets involved
in a local conflict first contact situation and reveals her race's existence.
Okay, I see why Karen really liked this
book. I just started it. And as she said in the review that no one will
now ever, ever read, ( I feel so tragic. Darn it, I have two copies of
the movie review.) the author does an incredible job of creating a character
that maintains a core identity and yet, slightly shifts with each new shape.
Bending to the whims of that bodies hormones and drives. And yet
at her core, is always Esen.
She said a lot of other cool things too.
The story is fast paced. Lots of adventure. And there is a very nice twist
at the end. The author sets you up and yet and you don't expect it.
Well, I do because I asked Karen what the
cool twist was. I often read the ends of books first. It releases tension
so I can enjoy the book instead of rip roaring - it's 4:00 am and I have
to go to work - through it. And this is that kind of book.
