From Library Journal
Delany's 1967 novel won the Nebula Award for Best Science Fiction Book. The plot follows a race of aliens, the Lo Lobey, who colonize Earth after humankind's departure and try to make sense of our existence (good luck!). This edition has a new foreword by Neil Gaiman of Sandman comic fame.

"When Delany describes to us what he has seen, what he can compute, adduce, intuit or smell in the underbrush, our reaction is to sit bolt upright and cry out, 'Of course, I have that very wound myself!' The ability to produce this reaction in people is one of the commonly accepted and apparently valid appurtenances of genius . . . I look forward to the explosion reading this will create within you."―A. J. Budrys, Galaxy Magazine

There were parts of the story that I found really interesting, and I found some of the quotes preceding the chapters quite poignant. But others just felt tacked on and some (like the author's notes) threw me out of the story a bit. I think the most interesting parts of the books were when the characters were discussing relationships and genetic mutations. I wasn't as impressed with the action sequences.
I think the main themes of the book were interesting and thought provoking, but I didn't really think they were presented in a way that provided a lot of clarity. There were insights and quotes peppered through the text that I simply loved, but the overall story left me feeling unsatisfied.
I can see why this novel won the Nebula Award. It is well written, interesting, and unique. The only problem is that it is not memorable. It's only been a couple of days since I read it and I hardly remember anything about it. It's a good book but you don't learn much from it, it doesn't stretch your brain.
