Resenhas

For a book written in 1966 it was quite innovative in how the author saw the future and unique in how space travel, with its complexities, was controlled by specialists using emotions, instinct and heightened senses to master the controls and navigation- with some of these specialists in the crew being deceased with their thought patterns and memories retained artificially.
The main thrust of the plot is the use of language and how it shapes thinking in individuals and cultures. The effort to transmit this concept was often hard to follow and detracted from enjoying the story. The ending too was sudden and somewhat disappointing in my opinion.… (mais)

Aha, something from my 2015 support-POC-in-genres list. This is classic sci-fi, with the spaceships and battles and whatnot, but I enjoyed it. Much more about language and class and identity and skepticism of war. Cool to know this man was out there in the 60s imagining new worlds and winning awards for it.

Two different authors, two different styles...from Delany's lyrical prose about family, belonging, and loneliness at the edge of the galaxy to Varley's straightforward approach to the same themes set much closer to home (and which, I might add, did not end anywhere near the way I assumed it would). Both authors paint a very broad canvas indeed for such short stories, their richly detailed world-building incorporating technical wonders both awe-inspiring and decadent.

It's been a long long time since I've read this book for the first time. I think it was school? Or maybe university? Somewhere at that time I read it for the first time and was seeded with this idea that our language defines our perception. Many years and books since then I just read it for a second time as that seed grown into a one hell of a weird tree... sorta.

It took me years to explore this idea and put it into conscious belief. I explored some languages, some concepts, I compared and thought about many little things, I started noticing them in translated books, I paid attention to the cases when author explicitly provided commentary for nuances and difficulties.

Overall this was just a right book at the right time.
