    ePUB Nicola Griffith ½ ½ Ammonite Kindle ↠ ammonite epub, Ammonite PDF/EPUBnicola griffith is one of the best writers out there and if you haven't read her books you should the only book of hers that left me cold was the third aud torvingen novel Always and the reason it left me cold is maybe similar to the reason why i found that this book Ammonite lost some steam 34 of the way through it got it back before the end let me start with saying that this is griffith's first novel it's an absolutely phenomenal first novel the writing is perfect the pacing is perfect the characters are perfect where another author might spend words explaining griffith gestures deftly with a word or a sentence and you are all set and occasionally blown away i admire this i admire the precision and focus of her work i also admire that she writes books about people who happen to be women who happen to love other women this is not women's fiction or lesbian fiction any than Mrs Dalloway is women's fiction or lesbian fiction her characters are complex and rich and tough and tende

    ePUB Nicola Griffith ½ ½ Ammonite Kindle ↠ ammonite epub, Ammonite PDF/EPUBDamn this is a good bookIt's a first novel and it has some of the weaknesses I associate with first novels it jumps through time a lot and those jumps aren't always telegraphed adeuately; some of the descriptions while each individually uite beautiful ended up feeling repetitive when taken as a whole But most impressively it already displays a great deal

    ePUB Nicola Griffith ½ ½ Ammonite Kindle ↠ ammonite epub, Ammonite PDF/EPUBI enjoyed this from first page to last and it’s different enough for a five I like its attitudes for one how it takes a spanner to our sacred biology Here a virus enhances our senses and by accident grants us control over the body Bring it on The story is of an anthropologist who learns the wisdom to go native Its theme I’m told is change and I can see that change to escape extinction on a personal level the main among others or a cultural a group of horse nomads on the planet becomes destructiveself destructive because their way of life has ceased to fit their environment or biological The main already has taught

    ePUB Nicola Griffith ½ ½ Ammonite Kindle ↠ ammonite epub, Ammonite PDF/EPUBI thought I would like this book than I did it's the kind of story I normally like science fiction feminism what's not to like? My main problem was that the main characters behave in ways that don't really seem consistent with their roles and backgrounds The anthropologist Marghe seems generally clueless about different cultures and what motivates people She lands on this planet and immediately heads off into the wilderness without any idea at all of what's out there what she might try to accomplish or what dangers might exist The commander Danner worries that people don't like her enough and has no insight at all into the people under her or the planet they live onI just couldn't get caught up in the story and it seemed to drag on interminably The final confrontation between the Company outpost and the native cultures seemed overly pat and not at all plausibleI did like some of the de

    ePUB Nicola Griffith ½ ½ Ammonite Kindle ↠ ammonite epub, Ammonite PDF/EPUBI really loved this book when I first read it way back when It was written in 1992 and I'm happy to say that I think it stands up to the test of time While I didn't love it uite as much as I remembered I'm finding very little to criticize about the original story And sometimes I wonder about my younger self when doing a re read so this was overall a very positive experience for meMarguerite Angelica Taishan is an anthropologist She studies people but doesn't really connect with them At the start of the story she has chosen to travel to the Company owned planet of GP The Company is sending her there as an SEC representative but she is also a test subject for a new vaccine GP is already populated by various female only tribes The indigenous population is why Marghe is

    ePUB Nicola Griffith ½ ½ Ammonite Kindle ↠ ammonite epub, Ammonite PDF/EPUBExploration of a technologically regressed human society without males with a shrouded means of procreation the central mystery of the story By the author's careful setup the anthropologist main character is forced to take large risks leave civilization and step into the unknown in order to learn about the inhabitants of planet Jeep and uncover their secrets and the true nature of the virus that killed over half the population and to which she carries a possible vaccineNicola Griffith did an awesome job of world building from the orbital mechanics of Jeep to its climate zones and seasons to inventive flora and fauna and even a bit of geology to enrich the setting The writing is graceful and brings planet Jeep vividly into the imagination and the travails and changes of the main character into realityThere is a mystical aspect to this book that links it strongly to themes introduced to science fiction by Dune but delved explicitly or scientifi

    ePUB Nicola Griffith ½ ½ Ammonite Kindle ↠ ammonite epub, Ammonite PDF/EPUBThis book started well but for me ran out of steam a little during the middle and never fully recoveredIt was an interesting premise and I was gripped by the story for the most part An anthropologist Marghe seizes and uniue opportunity to study a people on a planet that was colonised hundreds of years ago but which contained a virus that killed all of the men and some of the women Their colony survived due to the remaining women somehow gaining the ability to have children without men Now the company wants to exploit the resources of this planet if only they could find a cure for the virus so they allow Marghe to visit the planet in return for her testing a new experimental vaccine As Marghe travels to towards the legendary landing point of the first colonists she becomes and embroiled in the lives of the peoples she encounters less able to distance herself emotionally as an observer should do she begins to gain an understanding of the true n

    ePUB Nicola Griffith ½ ½ Ammonite Kindle ↠ ammonite epub, Ammonite PDF/EPUBSo I went into this than a little worried that it would be an ode to essentialism but it turns out that this is as non essentialist as a story about a planet of women who are in tune with each other and nature can be Griffith presents here the radical idea that a planet inhabited only by women would be pretty much like any other human population There are good people bad people peaceful societies violent societies honesty cheating etc I cannot commend Griffith for this enoughAmmonite is set on Jeep Grenchstom's Planet GP Jeep eh? centuries after a plague wiped out all of the men and most of the women of the original colony The Company often just referred to as Company in what

    ePUB Nicola Griffith ½ ½ Ammonite Kindle ↠ ammonite epub, Ammonite PDF/EPUBI really enjoyed this book It was uite different to most other SciFiFantasy books in that all the characters are genetically female but there is nothing in the book about gender roles No women doing ‘men’s’ jobs The characters are simply people – of all physical types and temperaments doing all kinds of jobs Some characters are good some bad some wise some ignorant some with open minds and some bound so tightly by tradition After the initial surprise you stop noticing that there are no male pronouns – at all Jeep is a planet that The Company wants to exploit It has been cut off from ‘civilisa
