I felt icky after reading this. [will update review later.] ( )

Giving up on page 365 of 490 of my digital copy.

I really didn't want to give up on this, because it's very nicely written. Every sentence is well turned, and the world is replete with interesting facets and aspects. It's full of non-European traditions and experiences, which are shown as just as valid and civilised if not more so than the Europe-analogue. It's full of hard questions and interesting angles. It's got girls carving their own fates against a hard world that would deny them that (instead of girls living in a world where they're equal and don't have to fight that fight).

But it's also kind of boring. The pace plods, the telling too measured to skip along, and the details weighing it down, perhaps because the first-person narrator is a little too self-aware of the storytelling. And while the overall plot arc no doubt describes a marvellous three-act structure with significant rhetorical underpinnings, the movements of Green's life didn't really hang together with any sort of inevitability that drove her inexorably into the next part of the action - I found waiting to see what happened next an entirely passive experience, and it made things pass even more slowly.

In the end, I liked it, I did, and I think it has solid merit, but I find myself sitting here on a day perfect for snuggling up with my cat and reading, and I am not reading it, so it's time to call it: reading this is not fun, and I am going to stop. ( )

I can't decide between 3 and 4 stars... But I did enjoy most of it. A young girl is sold by her father into slavery that includes education as a high class concubine to a mysterious undying duke. She remains angry and rebellious but learns discipline and violence. It reminded me a bit of Kushiel's Dart, only a little less fun. ( )

I chose Green because of the beautiful cover art, and the blurb sounded intriguing.

It wasn't until 3/4 of the way through I realized I'd read another book by Jay Lake, one which I hated.

It's funny how much I liked Green considering that. If I'd realized it was the same author I probably wouldn't have read it.

Green is strong minded, even as a toddler, and pushes her boundaries every chance she gets. I loved watching her develop as she matures. The story drew me in and kept me interested. I'll keep an eye out for the next two books. ( )

At times unsettling but always compelling, Green abounds with intrigue and adventure. A feminist fable lovingly written with a father's hope and concern for his daughter's future, Green is the story of a strong-willed young woman trying to find her place in a world that would rather ignore her. Green will not be ignored.
