Shelves: 2011, 9, reread, sf, want-to-reread
It's taken me quite a long time to reread this as it hasn't been my focus book, but oh it has been a delight to revist the People. I think the original book of stories ("Pilgrimage") remains my favourite and Karen and Valancy my favourite characters, but really it has just been delightful to slowly reread my way through the stories.

It does say that the extra short stories at the end are People stories, but I'm not so sure about "Incident After" and "The Walls". I think they're SF sto

These are kind of like Anne of Green Gables meets science fiction and then a little more. If you weren't longing for your home in a far distant galaxy before reading these stories you will be after. I just loved them.

Es un libro de ciencia ficción ya que hay extraterrestres con poderes especiales. Pero eso es sólo la excusa. El libro versa sobre todo lo bueno que las personas podemos hacer. Habla de generosidad, de amor al prójimo, del placer de ayudar a los que lo necesitan, ... Esto es lo que nos enseñan estos seres venidos de otro mundo. Son un espejo donde mirarnos, si queremos.

La autora demuestra una sensibilidad inmensa. Era profesora y no he podido remediar sentir envidia por sus alumnos.<
