AuthorsM. A. Foster
The first part of this book has to be one of the hardest reads i've ever bothered to finish off, but I could sense that it all must be going somewhere. With a different race of human like beings, and the associated language and culture covered very thoroughly.
In the end, there was a point, and I didn't mind the book at all, but i'd have a hard time recommending it, as I found it very tough going.
