    Paperback ñ Earthsong PDF/EPUB Õ earthsong mobile, Earthsong PDF/EPUBI 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

    Paperback ñ Earthsong PDF/EPUB Õ earthsong mobile, Earthsong PDF/EPUBAaargh Whole premise of first two books summarily dropped in favor of airy fairy method of communication Most irritating

    Paperback ñ Earthsong PDF/EPUB Õ earthsong mobile, Earthsong PDF/EPUBI 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

    Paperback ñ Earthsong PDF/EPUB Õ earthsong mobile, Earthsong PDF/EPUBThere's much conceptually to admire about Elgin's work in this trilogy and in this final piece of it and I did read it fast butsometimes the disparate story telling the avoiding of scenes of conflict the focus on exposition and narration and so little dialogue actionwell On one hand it feels very feminist who needs a plot triangle F that and so on On the other ha

    Paperback ñ Earthsong PDF/EPUB Õ earthsong mobile, Earthsong PDF/EPUBThe 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

    Paperback ñ Earthsong PDF/EPUB Õ earthsong mobile, Earthsong PDF/EPUBWhile 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

    Paperback ñ Earthsong PDF/EPUB Õ earthsong mobile, Earthsong PDF/EPUBThis is the most generous and ambitious book of the trilogy A happy surprise that comes and gives meaning to the series The premise seems to be taken to its extreme in a utopian fashion While reading it it felt at times strange and unconvincing but it was defenitely worth reading The thought experiment underlying the series was really interesting maybe even unique Since it was meant to be wider that the scope of fiction Elgin set out to launch Láadan her constructed language potentially better suited to express women's perceptions into the world the real world It is an inspiring case where the Sapir–Whorf hypothesis and feminism meet using fiction as a weapon of reality not an adversary

    Paperback ñ Earthsong PDF/EPUB Õ earthsong mobile, Earthsong PDF/EPUBA 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 spoilerthe 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

    Paperback ñ Earthsong PDF/EPUB Õ earthsong mobile, Earthsong PDF/EPUBI don't feel like this book followed the plot course of the previous two it took a complete turn into left field and left me disa

    Paperback ñ Earthsong PDF/EPUB Õ earthsong mobile, Earthsong PDF/EPUBI 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
