    PDF/EPUB Courtship Rite ePUB ´ ¾ motorrad 100.de courtship kindle, rite epub, Courtship Rite eBookI just can't get into this book Perhaps it's that the writing is harsh and clunky at least to my mental ear There are points where a character says something and I'm jarred out of the scene asking huh? Perhaps it's the characters of whom I like or care for noneIt's a shame for two reasons One the world Geta is potentially fascinating A harsh world most of whose flora and fauna is poisonous to human life A situation that has forced the development of ritual cannibalism and lives conditioned by the harsh needs for survival Secondly Kingsbury's Psychohistorical Crisis remains one of my favorite novels and I had high hopes for this oneIf I didn't have interesting looking books on my to read shelf I might have stuck with this one but I don't want to continue to waste my time here
