The difference being, of course, that Nihilists are jerks.
Heh Okay I over simplify But I did enjoy this book Wave Without a Shore a lot couldn t put it down despite finding all the main characters for the first 2 3 to be really irritating It makes the climax and resolution all the sweeter, though.
Tedious Too much of this reads like caffeinated philosophy undergrads in a mental pissing contest Wooden dialogue, static culture, evenstatic plot Last third involves fair story advancement and epiphany, but too little too late Stanislaw Lem did philosophical debate much better, and any other Cherryh book Wave Without a Shore has better character development Look, I GET the point being made, but the book Wave Without a Shore doesn t merit the cost of slogging through it Once and done.

Definitely picks up on the second half What starts as a somewhat pretentious philosophical diatribe becomes a thankfullygrounded exploration of a society wherein reality is seen as a purely subjective and enforcing weapon The worldbuilding is unique if not a bit shallow, but the short length makes this story worth the one afternoon it would take to complete.
This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here The protagonist, Herrin, is such an arrogant, unlikable jerk that I didn t really care what happened to him, which made it difficult to stay invested in the story line, particularly the first 60% or so about the sculpture It picked up a bit after that, but I was disappointed that we never really learned anything about Keye or the alien civilisation other than just Sbi.
Why I didn t finish this This was a terrible Cherryh to start with I just got nothing out of this.
á Wave Without a Shore ↠´ Not as good as her other Allaince Union books Wave Without a Shore but still quite an interesting read.
I thought this book Wave Without a Shore was amazing and inspiring and wonderful It takes place on a distant world, but really it s a Utopia of conception with a race metaphor rolled up into it and it s just delightful It starts off with a character, Herrin Law, being selected by an academic as a smart person to be taken from his farm life to the Big City, called Kierkegaard, and trained up as an artist There, he meets Wade, who is set to become the most powerful man in the city The relationship between the two I thought this book Wave Without a Shore was amazing and inspiring and wonderful It takes place on a distant world, but really it s a Utopia of conception with a race metaphor rolled up into it and it s just delightful It starts off with a character, Herrin Law, being selected by an academic as a smart person to be taken from his farm life to the Big City, called Kierkegaard, and trained up as a What LeGuin did for Communism in The Dispossessed Cherryh does for Nihilism, with an entire planet of people firmly in the grip of a philosophy taking it further than expected.
