I thought I would like this book than I did it s the kind of story I normally like science fiction feminism what s not to like My main problem was that the main characters behave in ways that don t really seem consistent with their roles and backgrounds The anthropologist Marghe seems generally clueless about different cultures and what motivates people She lands on this planet and immediately heads off into the wilderness without any idea at all of what s out there what she might try to accomplish or what dangers might exist The commander Danner worries that people don t like her enough and has no insight at all into the people under her or the planet they live onI just couldn t get caught up in the story and it seemed to drag on interminably The final confrontation between the Company outpost and the native cultures seemed overly pat and not at all plausibleI did like some of the details about the subcultures the viajeras in particular and I think I would have enjoyed a story that was just about the world and its cultures without the Company conspiracy part of it

So I went into this than a little worried that it would be an ode to essentialism but it turns out that this is as non essentialist as a story about a planet of women who are in tune with each other and nature can be Griffith presents here the radical idea that a planet inhabited only by women would be pretty much like any other human population There are good people bad people peaceful societies violent societies honesty cheating etc I cannot commend Griffith for this enoughAmmonite is set on Jeep Grenchstom s Planet GP Jeep eh centuries after a plague wiped out all of the men and most of the women of the original colony The Company often just referred to as Company in what I found to be a very annoying affectation has sent a new expedition to evaluate the cost effectiveness of opening the planet up for exploitation again only to fall victim to the plague once The story follows one Marghe Taishan an anthropologist sent after that last expedition by the SEC some sort of governmental organization which isn t the same as Company see how annoying that is but might as well be Anyway Marghe is going to try to reestablish contact with the natives and test a new vaccine against the virus Once there she has some misadventures among the various tribes of the planet and there s some sort of looming thread regarding a spaceship Company has stationed there and then some other looming threat of a marauding group of nomads but this is mostly just a story about Marghe finding a home and subtextually of a woman becoming aware of the shared history of other woman identified women and forging a place in such a community for herself It s notable also I think that the words lesbian gay homosexual and so forth never appear in this book The characters have sexual or romantic relationships with other women or they don t and no one s sexuality prior to coming to this all woman planet is commented uponSo sociallypolitically I can absolutely get behind what Griffith is doing here The actual plot and characters though never really grabbed me and I m not even exactly sure why This was Griffith s first novel and I m definitely interested in reading her other work

Damn this is a good bookIt s a first novel and it has some of the weaknesses I associate with first novels it jumps through time a lot and those jumps aren t always telegraphed adeuately some of the descriptions while each individually uite beautiful ended up feeling repetitive when taken as a whole But most impressively it already displays a great deal of the maturity and style that I loved in Slow River Even in this first novel Griffith s voice is assured her characters are well drawn and her themes are delicately presented yet rigorously worked outGriffith s style is uietly exuisite understatedly lyrical in contrast to Catherynne M Valente s muscular lyricism or Patricia A McKillip s ornate lyricism or Peter S Beagle s cooly intellectual lyricismand what is with my favorite authors and all their middle initials in ways that seem all the surprising because this is a science fiction novel rather than a fantasy novel This is Griffith s description of Marghe s landing on GP The doors cracked open and leaked in light like pale grapefruit sueezings making the artificial illumination in the gig seem suddenly thick and dimJeep lightWind swept dark tatters across a sky rippling with cloud like a well muscled torso bringing with it the smell of dust and grass and a sweetness she could not identify She sniffed trying to euate the spicy sweet smell on the wind to something she knew nutmeg sun on beetle wings the wild smell of heatherOkay so maybe that passage wasn t so understated I delight in that sort of passage in fantasy novels where I expect magic I delighted in it in Griffith s Slow River which is SF but in the realist vein practically Mundane SF Here in this near planetary romance it took me aback as it should not have and I am grateful to Griffith for reminding me that there can be so much beauty in the alienPart of the reason Jeep is so beautiful in a stark fashion is that we see it mostly through Marghe s perspective and Marghe is a woman deeply attuned to both the world around her and to her own body She looks outward and inward and Griffith paints that dual focus with an incredible eye to detail that made the book startlingly visceral I have been thinking lately about female SFF characters relationships with their bodies and the way that Marghe is so firmly sited within hers made the beatings the starvation and the sex come alive on the page Also it really sends the message Jeep s a tough place The way that that character trait completely informs the way Marghe reacts to and advances the plot is just another sign of Griffith s immense skill as a storytellerBut the thing I am most struck by is how perfectly the jacket description captures this book it is a book all about change It s about characters changing and it s about societies changing and it s about the way those changes amplify or counteract each other and then it s about everything changing again It s not a book for people who like tight plots where every uestion raised is answered by the finale the finale just raises uestions about the future of the characters and the world Instead it s a book for people who like history who like to explore the hidden ways the past shapes the present and who are drawn to those turning points where the smallest decisions by individuals have the power to dramatically alter the fates of whole societies
