    One Reply to “White Queen”

    1. As a first contact story, I liked the book The Aleutians are fascinating, if kinda gross there are a lot of references to waste management and underwear before you ever get an explanation and by the end I really wanted to know about them The alien human politics leading up to the climax were also really interesting, but god, the character development I just didn t care about anyone There were too many hints that weren t followed up on and characters doing out of character things that I didn t u [...]

    2. Cluttered, pretentious, and nearly impossible to read through, this overwrought exercise is saved from the flames by its interesting conception of the alien Aleutians who visit a near apocalyptic Earth sometime in the twenty first century Roughly humanoid, the Aleutians wander through space in a large mothership, looking, insofar as Jones bothers to explain this, for opportunities to trade They reproduce asexually, communicate telepathically, and ascribe a highly peculiar place to electronic med [...]

    3. As intelligent and uncompromising as any of Gwyneth Jones other works, this boasts the creation of a truly alien society, and examines the tragic misunderstandings that ensue when humanity and aliens make first contact while labouring under some fundamentally flawed assumptions It has her usual searing and frequently discomfort inducing treatments of politics and sexuality, and some solid characterisation and carefully considered world building I admire the hell out of her writing, but small con [...]

    4. nwhytevejournal 1833686arted off very much enjoying the well constructed future Earth of the story the decayed America, the peculiar infections, the African setting for many of the chapters, the aliens who are than human and less than human in various ways, the central character who is a newsblogger avant la lettre But I didn t quite feel that the plot then did much with this promising elements Perhaps it s just that I got to it towards the end of a long plane flight, but I also remember having [...]

    5. Very disappointing.It is at once very traditional Aliens coming down to save us, culture clash of different sexual s , of it s time lots of aids parallels, the collapse of governments, very 80s technology and contemporary reproductive interest, environmental catastrophe Whilst in some cases this can create an interesting medley, but here it s just a mess.First of all, far too much is crammed into this short book We get huge long unnecessary descriptions of potential future developments and wild [...]

    6. I found this a rather difficult read, particularly at the beginning However, it got easier and gripping as it went on, probably because I got used to the writing style The aliens were very alien and I would have liked to have found out about them The writing was good but I found the plot rather uninteresting and the characters were quite unsympathetic It was OK but not really my cup of tea.

    7. The aliens broach the delicate line between terror and wonder, forcing us to question the strange within us The novel interrogates the expanse of what it means to be alien and human It delves into the various reactions of the characters to their own alien ness, confronted with the illusion of their own humanity One of the beautiful strengths of the book is its ability to force the readers to see through alien eyes at their own alien qualities We are all alienated It explores subjects of identity [...]

    8. I ve been meaning to reread this book, and its two sequels, for a long time, but in the continual chase to main a positive TBR balance ie, reading books than I buy I usually don t find time for rereads But then I agreed to write something about Jones s aliens for a critical work, not just because I welcomed the opportunity to write about Jones but also because it would force me to do that long put off reread And so it did And White Queen was not only better than I d remembered it, but also a go [...]

    9. Interesting, but not what I enjoy reading.The word psycho drama used in the text itself to describe a specific situation in the story strikes me as an appropriate reflection of the whole story.I find the majority of the story is about lies, selfishness, and betrayal So much so that it gets annoying as well as depressing at times The story is also full of hate and fear in many forms, of which a prominent recurrence is hate of oneself Depressing times two.Real people are complex, but for character [...]

    10. After the extraordinary Spirit, I went back to the original Aleutinian trilogy starting with this book and I have to say that despite that it is set in a somewhat dated future we can interpret it as an alternate Earth without the Internet essentially and with violent revolutions, split in the late 80 s from our Earth this books is still very entertaining though not an easy read The story of the first alien contact, Johnny the retrovirus infected journalist with an affinity for the Aleutinian Agn [...]

    11. Published 1991 Tiptree award winner Truly alien aliens in future world disintegrating from environmental threats USSR communist Very imaginative and provocative Difficult to know what was going on at first I would not use this in a class , but I came to love the characters Theme of isolation from human touch by contagion I definitely want to read Gwyneth Jones, but I don t know if I want to read the rest of this trilogy Maybe someday.

    12. It is 2038, and a great economic disaster in 2004 derailed the United States and most of Europe as any super power Japan and China are now one country Most of the book is set in Africa At some point, the USA changes to the United Social States of American and nobody cares It doesn t even make the mainstream news And then the mind reading aliens come.

    13. Set in the near future, two journalists try to break the story of an alien landing Although the characters were well developed, the technology was casually used and often gritty, and the aliens quite alien, I just didn t like this book much.

    14. I feel guilty as this was the first novel for ages I just could not finish, despite doggedly persisting with it for almost a month I don t mind admitting that I was basically totally baffled from start to finish A very strangely written novel that shot right over my head.

    15. Didn t finish it, was a little cold and overly sci fi for me I like aliens and space but this one got a little wierd writing was good, just didn t care for the story line.

    16. I m understanding the book now, at page 74, but the writing jumps around a lot and I am having a very hard time understanding some of the basic world setting.
