Read Ammonite

Ammonite Read & Download Õ E-book, or Kindle E-pub And realizes that not only has she found a home on Jeep but that she alone carries the seeds of its destruction Ammonite is an unforgettable novel that uestions the very meanings of gender and humanity As readers share in Marghe’s journey through an alien world they too embark on a parallel journey of fascinating self exploratio. So I went into this than a little worried that it would be an ode to essentialism but it turns out that this is as non essentialist as a story about a planet of women who are in tune with each other and nature can be Griffith presents here the radical idea that a planet inhabited only by women would be pretty much like any other human population There are good people bad people peaceful societies violent societies honesty cheating etc I cannot commend Griffith for this enoughAmmonite is set on Jeep Grenchstom s Planet GP Jeep eh centuries after a plague wiped out all of the men and most of the women of the original colony The Company often just referred to as Company in what I found to be a very annoying affectation has sent a new expedition to evaluate the cost effectiveness of opening the planet up for exploitation again only to fall victim to the plague once The story follows one Marghe Taishan an anthropologist sent after that last expedition by the SEC some sort of governmental organization which isn t the same as Company see how annoying that is but might as well be Anyway Marghe is going to try to reestablish contact with the natives and test a new vaccine against the virus Once there she has some misadventures among the various tribes of the planet and there s some sort of looming thread regarding a spaceship Company has stationed there and then some other looming threat of a marauding group of nomads but this is mostly just a story about Marghe finding a home and subtextually of a woman becoming aware of the shared history of other woman identified women and forging a place in such a community for herself It s notable also I think that the words lesbian gay homosexual and so forth never appear in this book The characters have sexual or romantic relationships with other women or they don t and no one s sexuality prior to coming to this all woman planet is commented uponSo sociallypolitically I can absolutely get behind what Griffith is doing here The actual plot and characters though never really grabbed me and I m not even exactly sure why This was Griffith s first novel and I m definitely interested in reading her other work

Ammonite Read & Download Õ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Es fighting for their lives Terrified of spreading the virus the company abandons its employees leaving them afraid and isolated from the natives In the face of this crisis anthropologist Marghe Taishan arrives to test a new vaccine As she risks death to uncover the women’s biological secret she finds that she too is changing–. I thought I would like this book than I did it s the kind of story I normally like science fiction feminism what s not to like My main problem was that the main characters behave in ways that don t really seem consistent with their roles and backgrounds The anthropologist Marghe seems generally clueless about different cultures and what motivates people She lands on this planet and immediately heads off into the wilderness without any idea at all of what s out there what she might try to accomplish or what dangers might exist The commander Danner worries that people don t like her enough and has no insight at all into the people under her or the planet they live onI just couldn t get caught up in the story and it seemed to drag on interminably The final confrontation between the Company outpost and the native cultures seemed overly pat and not at all plausibleI did like some of the details about the subcultures the viajeras in particular and I think I would have enjoyed a story that was just about the world and its cultures without the Company conspiracy part of it

I enjoyed this from first page to last and it s different enough for a five I like its attitudes for one how it takes a spanner to our sacred biology Here a virus enhances our senses and by accident grants us control over the body Bring it on The story is of an anthropologist who learns the wisdom to go native Its theme I m told is change and I can see that change to escape extinction on a personal level the main among others or a cultural a group of horse nomads on the planet becomes destructiveself destructive because their way of life has ceased to fit their environment or biological The main already has taught herself exercises to school her body functions and she is still traumatised from the time she had her face rearranged even though she looks unlikely at first closed up and scientific she s just the one to make the leap of identity lead the military remnants out of the compound into the risks and gains of the new I cared about secondary cast Aoife and thought bit parts deftly portrayed Twissel For much of the novel I forgot about its messages and had a romp with the adventure The writing besides has a lovely way with descriptions Although my copy doesn t have the author s note bummer I see around the traps that she wrote this or began to write this as an experiment in that it only has women in the cast As Ursula Le Guin said But a lot of books like Moby Dick eliminate one gender and yet nobody thinks anything about it Women readers grow up used to this I m a major fan of Moby Dick and identify with ease with male characters But I guess you need science fiction to get aboard a whale ship of women I choose to see as half humour half homage the plot whereby she kills off the men with a virus as Joanna Russ had to do on Whileaway to study women on their own Men once eliminated she just goes on as usual she doesn t note their absence they re not discussed the book s not about them for better or for worse If it was an experiment then it did its job on me Four or five times I forgot that we only have women on the planet a bunch of sailors a draggle of kids I pictured males for a moment and then went oops I m ashamed to say it may have been the rowdy sailors or the bratty kids that popped up a male image in my head Which means the book wasn t wasted on me I needed the exercise I see that Griffith was moved or provoked to write this by the state of the portrayal of women in speculative fiction in the early 90s I wasn t paying attention at the time What I did notice though was that the feminism we had perfect faith in when I was at university namely that there are no innate differences between the sexes there is only socialisation vanished without much of a trace that I saw in my society even on campus people embraced their gender distinctions and the world was never so pink and blue It s been a sore puzzle in my life that change so if she felt the need to pull out Joanna Russ at them again I can understand
