Embassytown

“Communication is the focus of this brilliant science fiction novel. Humans are settlers on a remote planet inhabited by the Ariekei, beings whose language is so different, they don’t even recognize the sounds humans make as anything but static. Their language is so complex, it takes two humans to utter a word. But it’s so strict, it takes human intervention to allow them to express even the simplest abstract concept. This novel is for sci-fi fans into immersive worldbuilding. It’s also for anyone who enjoys wordplay and linguistics. In some ways reading it is like solving a NYT crossword that’s slightly too hard, but so rewarding once you figure out the theme. Susan Duerden is a phenomenal narrator. She has a strong British voice that adds to the strength of the protagonist. Some directorial decisions add much to the otherworldliness of the Ariekei language. It's jarring at first, but it makes sense in the end.”
