really liked it
bookshelves: my-collection, sci-fi

This book was on this month's "Sci-Fi and Fantasy Club's" list for discussion, so it prompted me to pull out my old dusty copy, nestling comfortably next to her ex-husband's "Fire Upon The Deep".
A revisit 20 years after my first reading brought back the same sense of wonder and delight. It's hardly aged, this is definitely a classic. Not quite a masterpiece, there are definitely flaws (Moon is too perfect for one, and it dragged a sad slowly in places), but a novel to be proud of.

And the cover pictures are just glorious!

Kiri I owned the older edition with more stylized cover art... let's see if I can attach it The Snow Queen by Joan D. Vinge

I was really fond of THAT cover - and the book, too! The sequel(s) were disappointing in comparison.

Andrea oh wow, now that's pretty too!
