A low tech world has been contacted by a space faring race. But what can one anti-social trapper do, especially when his own people are against him?


My Thoughts:

A  thoroughly enjoyable story [it is listed as novella, but to be honest, it doesn’t seem that long to me, more like a long “short story”. [Ha]

I could sympathize with the main character,  in his attitude and his outlook on the passing of what he knew. I also think Sanderson did an excellent job of giving us a full story without falling into the trap of trying to tell us everything. This was an exercise in precision and he performed perfectly.

I think that the whole Cosmere thing [Sanderson has his own multi-uni-verse and every story takes place in it, even if they aren’t connected] is just a marketing ploy but since it doesn’t adversely affect anything, I don’t have any problems with it.

And getting a short dose of Sanderson is always a good thing. Sometimes one doesn’t want 500-900 pages, just a taste.
