I took a chance on this book mostly because of Bookreporter's review. The word "anthropology" intrigued me in describing the way the book works. It didn't disappoint, it was a great way to look at an alien culture that in some ways mirrors humankind, but different enough to be interesting. The way the book is written is like a puzzle or mystery. The first person narratives illuminate the discoveries of the way the two species may be undercutting their livelihood and security. I thought the ending was open-ended enough to suspect there may be another book about this world. However, I did find it a little confusing, still not sure I entirely understand the implications of the research done on genetics and mating of the two species. I like how the writer matched the religion of the species to their physiological needs: a way to understand them and their environment.

Wow!

O. S. Card got into the alien hive mind in the latter books of his “Ender” series. Octavia Butler did the same in her “Wild Seed”. No other writer I know of comes close to J. A. McLachlan depicting the thoughts and emotions of two truly alien species and their society as well as the environment in which they live.

I give “Walls of Wind” five stars and fervently hope that it is only the first of a series that explores in the same engaging manner this theme, the characters, and their world.

Kudos to J. A. McLachlan!

It took awhile to get used to figuring out which species is the "female" and the "male". After I got that cleared away I couldn't put the book down. Felt bummed out when I finished the book as there was no more to the story.

In depth characters with a rich culture, history and unique physiology. I want more about these characters and their world, including where they go from here.

This is a very unique book, not really sci-fi but well written, interesting and a breaking of stereotypes that are in so many books.
