A really good book about the way humans mess up the unspoiled, and the retribution.
  Jimbookbuff1963 | Jun 5, 2021 |
The Word for World is Forest is another book in Ursula K. Le Guin’s Hainish Cycle. This one I believe is set before the stories previously published, because it starts before the invention of the ansible (for instantaneous communication over large interstellar distances) and there’s clearly a much different and less benevolent philosophy toward alien planets and lifeforms. People from Earth have come to a planet that is full of trees, a resource that is no longer available on Earth. They start tearing trees down with a vengeance to send much-needed lumber back home. Meanwhile, they exploit the members of the indigenous people as badly as they exploit the planet.

The POV character in the first chapter, Davidson, is the most horrible, scummy, nasty head you could possibly want to be in. When I first started reading, I couldn’t imagine his POV could sustain an entire novel, even one that’s as short as this one, so I didn't expect his POV to last for the entire book, but I was still relieved when the second chapter started with a different POV character. Davidson is so proud of himself and his own beliefs and "the way he's made" that he’s convinced anybody who disagrees with him is either evil or brainwashed. Yet there is a great deal of underlying fear in his personality. He’s afraid to examine or consider contrary ideas, maybe afraid they would change who he is and he’s so very proud of who he is. His behavior is over the top, especially as the story progresses. He should have felt more like a caricature to me, yet I found him to be a believable villain who seems himself as a hero.

The story held my interest well. As usual, Ursula K. Le Guin has created an interesting world and an interesting alien culture, with some likeable characters that you come to care about. The themes will be extremely familiar for science fiction readers of today, and they’re not even a little bit subtle. I wasn’t that happy with how the story ended. There’s really nothing good or hopeful about the ending. The Athsheans have learned how to murder, and the implication is strong that this new “skill” will infect their own relations with each other even after the humans are gone. The humans who were on the planet don’t seem to have learned much of substance from the experience either. Either they already cared about the indigenous people or they didn’t, and each of them seemed to end up pretty much the same way they started. And once again the author kills off one of the few really likeable characters, Lyubov. :p

I’m rating this at 3.5 stars, rounding down to 3 on Goodreads. ( )

This story had me hooked from the first! The Athsheans were such a brilliantly conceived and wonderfully written people, and the Terrans the perfect example of humanities flaws.

What I especially liked was how much detail and consideration had gone into the world and culture of the Athsheans in such a short novel. The degree of world building was truly astounding.

This was the first book by Ursula K. Le Guin I've ever read, but she is straight up one of my favourite authors already. ( )

Written in 1972 within the context of the Vietnam War, the Gung-ho military guys are stereotypical 1960s "baby killers", smoking dope, dropping napalm on forests from helicopters, shooting up villagers. Feels dated. Was curious about it as an ecological parable to see if it had anything original. The world itself is cool and exciting to think there might be places like it in reality, but yeah, I'm sure humans if they ever got there would consume everything, that is our nature. But so is conservation, leaves you wondering which will prevail. ( )
