This book is really a collection of three books, with the last one obviously having been originally written in some sort of episodic format, as that last book in the collection really seems to retell some of the basics from chapter to chapter rather than depending on the earlier chapters' information still being in the reader's memory.
The first book tells of one man's journey from 'wronged man who is paying the price for his act of violence' through becoming that which he felt had wronged him. The second book builds on the story of the first and tells a wider story about the group the main character is now a part of, as well as continuing the growth of the character himself. And the third finally takes the group to a destination and finishes the growth of the main character into his new life. The story works well on many levels, both in telling the growth of the main character, the growth of the people around him, and building a wonderful 'world' of ideas and characters to life. It has the depth that many books that come to use as eBooks seem to lack.
What do you do if to survive you must become a being you hate: a Furr. What if the reason you have to do this is to avoid being executed for murder- the murder of a Furr. What do you do when you have to confront the fact that you're becoming what you hate...or think you do.
This is a different Furr story. To a degree it's plausible and it is believable. It is very well done. Why this author hasn't done more is a question, since he takes the augmentation of being that a Furr is and deals with it from a semi-realistic viewpoint.
Are the Furrs superior? In some ways yes, and in others no. They retain their non-Furr natures and personalities, to their benefit and their loss. Are these people still human? Yes and no, read it and decide for yourself.
That's the mark of a good book: you read it and draw your own conclusions from it.
There were moments in this book that had me laughing along to the giddiness of the characters, and had me feeling awful at the somber moments the main character felt. There was a point where my mind was screaming NO NO NO WHY NO PLEASE DON'T DO THAT TO HIM when a character's fear becomes true, only to find it was thankfully nothing more than a vivid nightmare. A true connection was made between me and the story, and I even gained inspiration to improve certain aspects of my life. To me, that is what a
a piece of literary artwork should be. Granted, there are grammatical and other not so minute errors that distract from the story here and there, but I made it a point to note them and bring them to the author's attention (yes, this book was worth enough that spending time improving it came without a forethought).
Out of a dumb little joke, I got an amazing experience that came at a strange, low point in my life. That will be something I will never forget, and for that, thank you Ted.
I definitely found that.
Was hooked from the start thought looking for furries is not anything like I thought it would be. Characters that had to fight and change to survive.
It's definitely a different take on a story done over many times allowing new ideas and emotions on a alien would settlement idea using convicts and"volunteers" to start life on a new world.
I like the characters thought can feel a bit like a soap opera and I do wonder at the deaths or conflicts that are thrown in there because there needed?
Took my time and looking forward to the next book, can't do much better than that ^.^
A chance to leave earth and humans behind!!!
Just wish the drama was left behind as well, but who knows maybe book two will bring out the furry dream on a new planet, second chance...
Glad to find a good author and story, now book two.
