    Ammonite af Nicola Griffith (mambo_taxi, mollishka)
    mambo_taxi: Recommended if the whole "what if we think about gender differently" genre of science fiction appeals to you. Ammonite is much more interesting and better written as well.
    mollishka: Offworlder treks through snow and ice on planet where all of the natives have the same gender.

    Ancillary Justice af Ann Leckie (lquilter)
    lquilter: Fans of either Le Guin's Left Hand of Darkness or Leckie's Ancillary Justice should enjoy the other. In common, the pacing, character-centered perspective obscuring aspects of the universe, political machinations, far-future setting, and treatment of ethics; also interesting for its simultaneous foregrounding and backgrounding of gender.… (mere)

While I enjoy Le Guin's essays and I adored The Dispossessed, this was only okay for me. I had a hard time getting into the story in general and keeping some of the characters straight was difficult. The idea of a humanoid species that is genderless is fascinating and she dealt with it masterfully. I wish the explanation of "kemmer" had come earlier in the book, which would have helped me from feeling so lost.

Halfway through, a major event turned the story from ho-hum to can't put down, which lasted for the remainder of the book. The cold and desolation were palpable and I raced through to the end. But even with my interest in the last half, I don't warm to sci-fi well and Le Guin's mastery of language and storytelling could not overcome that. The story was great and the problem is me, not the book. ( )

I didn't love the first half (approximately -- maybe more like 60%) of the book. It felt like a pretty ho-hum story with the added speed bump of having to learn weird new names and intuit things about culture and language within the story. That exercise on its own isn't terribly interesting to me (and is a mite annoying, in fact). There were some neat bits (the foretelling we witness is pretty vivid and neat, and there's some good stuff about how ambisexuality frees the society from gender-specific roles, etc.), but on the whole, I found the first half or so of the book to be a little bit of a slog. Things improved me as the long journey across the ice began. There was more here about human connection, and it was generally more appealing to me than the other anthropological bits earlier in the book. Really this is somewhere between a 2-star and a 3-star for me. I think I'd go back to the Earthsea series (I liked book 1 a lot) before picking up more random selections from LeGuin. ( )

This book is another one of those listed on the NPR list that I'm very slowly chipping away at, and it was highly recommended by someone whose reading judgment I appreciate; therefore, it shouldn't be much of a surprise that it turned out to be one of the more enjoyable reads from the list thus far. I found the political and cultural nuances of the storytelling to be intriguing, the plot by turns nerve-wracking and infuriating. I'll definitely be adding more books by this author to the "to-read" list. ( )

This was very interesting. A lot of social commentary and introspection, a very interesting premise.

This is a difficult book with complex themes but it is worth the effort to realise other possibilities for how life might be elsewhere. ( )

I’ll make my report as if I told a story, for I was taught as a child on my homeworld that Truth is a matter of the imagination.
From the Archives of Hain. Transcript of Ansible Document 01-01101-934-2-Gethen: To the Stabile on Ollul: Report from Genly Ai, First Mobile on Gethen/Winter, Hainish Cycle 93, Ekumenical Year 1490-97.

I'll make my report as if I told a story, for I was taught as a child on my homeworld that Truth is a matter of the imagination. The soundest fact may fail or prevail in the style of its telling: like that singular organic jewel of our seas, which grows brighter as one woman wears it and, worn by another, dulls and goes to dust. Facts are no more solid, coherent, round, and real than pearls are. But both are sensitive.

Light is the left hand of darkness
and darkness the right hand of light.
Two are one, life and death, lying together like lovers in kemmer,
like hands joined together,
like the end and the way.
Alone, I cannot change your world. But I can be changed by it. Alone, I must listen, as well as speak. Alone, the relationship I finally make, if I make one, is not impersonal and not only political: it is individual, it is personal, it is both more or less than political. Not We and They; not I and It; but I and Thou.
"Praise then darkness and Creation unfinished,"
A friend. What is a friend in a world where any friend may be a lover at a new phase of the moon? Not I, locked in my virility: no friend to Therem Harth or any other of his race. Neither man nor woman, neither and both, cyclic, lunar, metamorphosing under the hand's touch, changelings in the human cradle, they were no flesh of mine, no friends; no love between us.
The unknown, the unforetold, the unproven, that is what life is based on. Ignorance is the ground of thought. Unproof is the ground of action. If it were proven that there is no God there would be no religion. . . . But also if it were proven that there is a God, there would be no religion. . . . The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty: not knowing what comes next.
