The Best of All Possible Worlds

The Best of All Possible Worlds - Karen Lord Everyone said this was completely different from Karen Lord's previous book (which I loved), and it is in terms of setting and genre and language, but there is an overt storytelling aspect to both books which I find interesting and appealing. And of course they are both written so well it seems effortless.The is in many ways a quiet story, focusing on the complexities of human evolution and human relationships and human socities (human, not Terran, which is of primary importance in the novel). In a lot of ways it's very subtle, and there are moments of insight that I found really striking and challenging (in a positive, thinky way). I think this maybe will not be for everyone, but it's the sort of thing that really sticks with me.
