[ Pdf Earthsong (Native Tongue, #3) î tunis PDF ] by Suzette Haden Elgin Ö I don t think I ve ever been disappointed with the final book in a series I recommended the first two in the series to everyone I talked to, but this one felt so rushed It was less personal, and the timeline wasn t entirely clear I m fine with the ending itself, I just wish the author would have taken time to get there. I loved Native Tongue, the first book in this trilogy, but the second two books weren t nearly as strong This one is centered around a really interesting idea, focused on music instead of language, but the time span of the book is so long literally hundreds of years that it s just centered on the idea without any real characters with arcs I was also disappointed that the preface was an explanation of how the story got told, from outside the world of the story, where the prefaces of the first two books were from within the universe of the story Ultimately, I don t regret having read the second two, but I d recommend that others read the first book and stop there. The different cover artist for first printing of this third book in the Native Tongue trilogy should have been a clue Earthsong diverges from the first two in both form and content and feels like a completely different book My theory is Elgin had given up on Laadan becoming popular in use by the time she wrote Earthsong and shifted direction, hence the audiosynthesis plot line Earthsong still has a lot to say about humanity, activism, and change and is a worthwhile read, but it requires a shift in mindset. While I still see the great writing of Suzette, I must admit this book broke my heart The previous two has some hope for the males and indeed some males acted with common sense in the second one However, in this one the idea that males are somehow unable to think beyond their innate programming which is so inferior to females made me hurt I do not believe this and the author or some commentator who helped publish this does put into her notes how this may seem dated with the changes in society since the time it was written To me this proves the point I do believe that there are differences between men and women but I also believe that a hell of a lot of those are cultural When society changes so do the actions of males and females Just look at our disgust of the treatment of females in other parts of the world the p I really didn t like this as much as the first two books in the trilogy Whereas they had a plot, this third book was really a collection of short stories, with little to tie them together Frankly, it was neither very well edited nor very entertaining, and was missing the thought provoking ideas of the first two books.
A good ending to the trilogy I was expecting a lot bara anger, with cause, with someone to blame, but with nothing to do about it in the book itself, but view spoiler the situation has improved from the previous two books there was a mention in this book that women were given human rights back again I suppose I thought it would keep getting worse until the end of this book I was also glad to see some of the men evolving too hide spoiler Uhm A trilox a ten unha premisa interesante e a desta terceira parte pode gustarlles axs anti especistas en particular, mais p salle ben o tempo feminismo da segunda onda Tr tase dun feminismo pac fico, binarista, esencialista de x nero, teoc ntrico, USAc ntrico e a nda que loita contra o capitalismo m is atroz fica nun capitalismo amable. I would rate the entire trilogy a 5 5 stars, but wanted to be clear that the first book was my favorite What I liked about the trilogy as a whole was its unique presentation of the scale and scope of change, and from a distinctly female gaze and perspective So often strong women are just masculine females, probably who have been raped This is nothing like that, nor does it even approach that narrative style Only a few women are so important that they are consistently named, but mostly it s about making slow, meandering change over generations, with the satisfaction of results only going to the reader who can actually see it The scale and scope are illustrated in the myriad of vignettes of Terran men and women throughout Terra and the galaxy over a lengthy timeline, with only I freely admit that the first time I read this book badly jetlagged I was all, And now she s gone off the reservation But a second reading shows that this is the most subtle and brilliant installment in the Native Tongue series, because Haden points out the challenges of trying to reform a society even as external factors shape it beyond recognition over hundreds of years all through monkeying with the basic conventions of narrative to point out how fragmented and incoherent intention can be, no matter how clearly people try to communicate it.
