A Stranger in Olondria - Sofia Samatar

Well, this has taken a turn for the weird, and has become a slog to get through.  Whenever I pick it up, I find my eyes glazing over at the opaque language and frustrating lack of plot. How's about less poetry and more something interesting happening??


Also, it's definitely fantasy, not science fiction.  More's the pity.
