5.0 out of 5 stars I was sad when it ended and I had no more of it to read., 12 Oct. 2006
This review is from: The Dispossessed (Paperback)
Though this book is often criticised as not deserving to be classed as science fiction, I really enjoyed it. I think mainly because I waited until I was old enough to really understand it. I bought it when I was in my mid to late 20's when what I really liked was hard sci fi; Peter F Hamilton, Vernor Vinge, Iain Banks etc. So it sat on the shelf for a few years waiting it's turn. I recently got round to reading it and yes, there are no space battles, laser guns or fights in cyberspace.

That's not what you get. What you do get is a beautiful story, complex politics and an entire WORLD that is both alien and familiar. The writing in this novel is of a quality that you rarely see in science fiction. It is no accident that this book is rated highly by science fiction and mainstream critics.
