Review: Singer From the Sea, by Sheri S. Tepper
This Tepper novel is a strongly-stressed parable about consuming: eating, spoiling, using up and undervaluing resources from nature and human society.

The base story is engaging; as we follow an upper-crust maiden through her “prep-school” training and her debut at court, we learn the Genevieve has powers not possessed by other girls in her society. This foundational tale is almost like a Regency novel, complete with evil old suitors for the young girl’s hand, a deceased mother and an heroic (though unqualified) young man who strives to help Genevieve as he falls in love with her.

One by one, the author pours additional, darker flavors into this stew: a king collects precious treasures, then consigns them to a rubbishy pile; men are made widowers over and over as each wife dies tragically; an addictive substance consumes more and more of the attention and prosperity of the land.

Tepper’s work is always richly seasoned with ecological, religious, sociological and feminist arguments. It is ironic, then, that The Singer from the Sea can be read as a warning of the dangers of fetal stem cell research. The desire to live longer and better lives is a basic human yearning. Tepper’s story warns us that “mining” the wombs of women and the lives of our children to sate the hunger for long life will lead us, in the end, to barrenness and death.
I read this book when it first came out and enjoyed it just as much recently. Like others, I really appreciate the world-building Tepper is capable of and I enjoy her character-making as well, although there are a few here, like Genevieve's father, who are a bit flat and less believable than they might be. This is to be understood in a novel with several subplots --each with at least a few main characters-- that end up meeting up with each other. I did not find the novel to be so completely anti-technology as I saw at least one reviewer did (there seemed to be a focus of "right use" of technology), although it's true that I found the ending (about going back to the sea) disturbing. But this kind of disturbance to me is part of why it's a good read. Like much other Sci Fi,there's a relatively happy ending (evil guys vanquished) with some larger questions about the nature of good, of humanity, of our place in the universe (and so on) remaining somewhat open. (I say this even despite the direction the ending took; to me there's a difference between what the characters believe answered and what the book itself actually answers, if that makes sense.)

But enough on that. I want to mention here how badly the Kindle version needs to be re-edited. It wouldn't be that hard to do, since so many of the typos create words that don't exist in most spell checks' American English dictionaries. Most of them seem like scanner errors, with one of the least recognized letter combinations being "li." So, for example, instead of "lips," it was "hps"; instead of "listed" it was "Usted"; "line" was "Une"; "lie" was "he" (as in you'll need to tell "a better he than that"). There were others as well. It took me a while to figure out that "bus-Ue" meant "bustle." One of my favorites was "dudes" in place of "duties" (as in "you'll be ready to start your dudes at the palace").

I'm not going to tell you not to buy the Kindle version, but it would be nice to see the publisher issuing a corrected version -- especially keeping in mind the inventive way Sheri Tepper works with language.
I am a big fan of Sheri's and this was no exception. I did, very close to the end, realize how very much the plot seemed to parallel Six Moon Dance.

One thing I have to agree with another reviewer is that in translating the story to Kindle format, many odd errors were introduced. Words with LI had those changed to U so that list becomes une and little becomes uttle. There were many of these and normally that would be really irritating. Fortunately I read this first in paperback so I managed to overlook them. I just wonder why it appears that editors think Kindle readers are too stupid to notice these and not to bother to get them corrected.
It's a hazard of e-publishing, but really annoying. Sheri Tepper is a good writer and deserves better handling. This appears to be scanned from hardcopy--there are oddly scrambled words peppered throughout that seem to result from the scanner misreading certain letters. Obviously nobody bothered to eyeball the thing to catch these distrating and sloppy problems..

An early Tepper, apparently, so not as solid as her later work, but still entertaining and well above the average.
Tepper has created a truly fascinating universe here. Of course, someone who feels that a piece of wood is just something to burn
will conclude that whole thing is ridiculous and a waste of time. But I feel that is an almost poetic outburst of our roots and doubts.
Enjoy it.
Love Tepper's work
It's so easy
wife loves the entire series - obviously by the number of books she's bought
I loved this book. It drew me in right away. The story and world is incredibly inventive, rich and nuanced. Although it's speculative fiction, there were so many concepts in the book that resonate with our real world issues of misogyny, and using religion and dogma to institutionalize misogyny. I found it very relevant. The heroine is great, she is super likeable. The whole idea that planets have souls is really beautiful to. I just loved this book all the way through. Sherri S. Tepper is a master.
