Finished reading: The Best of All Possible Worlds by Karen Lord


I picked this one off the New Books shelf at the library and was intrigued enough to borrow it. The Best of All Possible Worlds by Karen Lord is a gentle sci-fi story focused on culture exploration in the same vein of the later books of Orson Scott Card’s Ender series or some of the works of Ursula K. LeGuin. The cover blurb is a little bit misleading:

A proud and reserved alien society finds its homeland destroyed in an unprovoked act of aggression…

Well, yeah… that happens on the first page. The remainder of the story is a more subtle story about relationships being built between different cultures. It was an enjoyable read.
