by C.J. CherryhThis novel, set in the Alliance-Union universe, may be science-fiction, but it's really about what happens when language fails.Since it's a written text, there's a certain level of narrative distance from the events, as it moves across several generations of "settlers" and their descendants on a planet where everything is exactly as it is, and nothing is what it seems, unless you know how to, as St. Augustine put it in his "On Christian Doctrine," read rightly.And none of the protagonists know how to do so.
It's a complicated and phenomenally interesting novel, but it's not for someone who needs an explosion on every other page.
