Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

In a far-flung capitalistic empire among the stars, generations of colonization without a single contact with an intelligent, non-human species have reduced the colonial process to a franchise system. Amid the abuses of the system which inevitably follow, an old woman decides not to leave when her failed colony is evacuated, thinking the freedom to live alone and die in peace is worth any risk. In this entertaining but suspenseful first-contact novel, Elizabeth Moon's apt depiction of the interaction between old and young plays counterpoint to the interaction between human and alien. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

Format: Taschenbuch
I have really likes the book. Elizabeth Moon guides you into the mind of the old woman Ofelia not wanting much more from life but peace. When all the settlers are forced to leave the planet, she hides in the forest. Bit by bit, she explores her newfound freedom, and revels in nobody telling her of what is proper behavior. When new settlers arrive someplace else on the planet and are all slaughtered, she learns of aliens originating on this planet. The aliens, peaceful when not defending their nests, are now also aware of humans. They send a crew to investigate rumors about the first settlement and thus find Ofelia. After some first-contact misunderstandings and comics, Ofelia acting very grandma-like because she is at first not aware of the intelligence of the aliens, the aliens adopt Ofelia as nestmother. Then, human military lands on the planet to investigate the situation...
I liked this book so much because of the totally different perspective of the old woman in contrast to usual stories centering around young people. And I'm 25 ;-)

The concept of an elderly woman purposefully stranding herself on an alien planet as her colony departs forever is brilliant. The aliens were pretty well conceived, though it would have been more interesting if Ms. Moon could have elaborated on the planet's alien ecosystem. I grew somewhat tired of the ongoing detailed descriptions of Ofelia's daily living activities . . . cooking, going to bed, and gardening for instance. The book did captivate my imagination however, and I was glad I read it.

I bought this book because I read the first few chapters online and was very intrigued by them. The protagonist, an elderly woman, was interesting and engaging. I had read Deed of Paksenarrion and loved it, though I am less enamored of Moon's other series. This story starts off promisingly, with Ofelia's decision to stay behind and live alone when her colony is evacuated from her planet. Her character changes as she realizes that she is no longer confined by society's expectations, and yet she discovers that she is not immune to the long years of conditioning by society. Ofelia continues to maintain parts of the colony more out of a sense of obligation rather than her need for it. At the same time, she does start to realize that she no longer needs to conform - though it seems that the most significant result for Ofelia of this realization is her ability to wear very little in the way of clothing. I was bothered by the way that time seemed to have no meaning, by which I mean years could pass in a matter of paragraphs and the only way the reader finds out about the passage of time is a later reference. I realize that this type of attitude towards time can be attributed to Ofelia's age or to her solitude existence, but what sticks out is that the narrative also glosses over the years passing.

And then the indigenous people arrive. And Ofelia teaches them her speech and how human technology works - or least as far as her limited understanding allows. And of course, these natives are more noble and intelligent than humans are. This is exemplified by their elevation of Ofelia, who had little to no status in human society - first as a woman and second as an elderly person, to high status within their society.

Moon has proven herself capable in the past of providing masterful characterizations of young women (Deed of Paksennarion) and middle-aged women (Heris Seranno in Hunting Party et. al.). Here she proves herself equally adept at very old women. The basic plot involves a first contact where only one human is left. I can think of several cases where this has been used where the protagonist is a young person inadvertently or willfully left behind. In this case, the twist is that the person is a very old woman, on the order of 80. She stays behind deliberately and the early part of the book details her blossoming once she has gotten away from family oppressors. By the time the aliens arrived I was thoroughly identifying with the protagonist and really hoped for her success. This one deserves an award nomination, Hugo probably

This book has produced ecstatic reactions in many quarters but failed to do much for me. The characterisation is indeed strong and the writing is excellent, but the plot is predictable and rather thin for a full length novel.
One of the Amazon customer reviews exults "This book should be read by all women". In fact the women in this book are, I suspect, intentionally stereotypical (or maybe archetypal): the cranky but bright grandmother, the nagging wife, the village slut, the attention-seeking bimbo, the insensitive career-woman. It's a story whose (worthy) moral tries to be "don't patronize", but somehow ends up being "don't patronize anyone who doesn't deserve it". Not quite the same thing...

Remnant Population is the very best of Elizabeth Moon - an author noted for combining inspiring fantasy with gritty realism. Our heroine is unexpectedly found in the character of an elderly Hispanic woman who has worked herself into the very ground, too stubborn to move, too strong to die. She helps an alien population find harmony with the violent human race in a surprisingly delightful way - using a woman's strengths and a mother's perceptions. Although this book addresses deep seated human fears and agressions, it's a fun, light read. When I reached the last page, I turned the book over and read it again!
