The Word for World Is Forest
Sep 21, 2021
Read 2 times. Last read September 15, 2021 to September 21, 2021.
Far better my second time reading it, this time going slow and carefully and enjoying the strong writing and the sections that come from the perspective of the indigenous people that have been spotlighted here. However, I still cannot see that Ursula Le Guin has pulled off her primary Earth character, Captain Davidson. He's completely unconvincing to me and reads like revenge porn. I am open to being convinced otherwise. And it is important to put the book in its historical context of the Vietnam War.
