She awoke in an alley to the splash of rain. She was naked, a foot-long gash in her back was still bleeding, and her identity implant was gone. Lore van de Oest had been the daughter of one of the world's most powerful families ... and now she was nobody, and she had to hide. Then out of the rain walked Spanner, predator and thief, who took her in, cared for her wound, and taught her how to reinvent herself again and again. No one could find Lore now: not the police, not her family, and not the kidnappers who had left her in that alley to die. She had escaped ... but the cost of her new found freedom was crime and deception, and she paid it over and over again, until she had become someone she loathed. Lore had a choice: She could stay in the shadows - stay with Spanner - and risk losing herself forever. Or she could leave Spanner and find herself again by becoming someone else: stealing the identity implant of a dead woman, taking over her life, and creating a new future. But to start again, Lore required Spanner's talents - Spanner, who needed her and hated her, and who always had a price. And even as Lore agreed to play Spanner's game one final time, she found that there was still the price of being a van de Oest to be paid. Only by confronting her family, her past, and her own demons could Lore meld together who she had once been, who she had become, and the person she intended to be ... Slow River won the 1997 Nebula Award for Best Novel.… (mer)

I really wanted to like it, because it has a lot of themes I enjoy, but the pacing just did not hold my interest for more than a few pages at a time. ( )

Engrossing. I can see why it won awards. ( )

It was really well done but it was also really intense and troubling. Lots of abuse and trauma with a side of making you very nervous about wastewater processing. ( )

I really like something - I'm not 100% sure what - about Griffith's storytelling. I know this because this is the third book of hers I've read, and they are all about completely different things, but I've been totally engrossed in all of them. She has a love of nature and science and sapphic love that pervades all her work, so that might be one reason why. I am looking forward to reading the next Hild book, and searching for whatever else she has written. ( )
