    The Mount eBook ç Paperback mount mobile, The Mount EpubWhen I began reading this story of an alien race that has not just conuered us but turned us into their personal mounts I expected a heavy handed metaphor about slavery and social dynamics What I got instead was part allegory but also a fully realized SF world complete with intricate mechanisms by which an alien invader managed to tame us as

    The Mount eBook ç Paperback mount mobile, The Mount EpubI read this for a Goodreads book club I did not vote for it but I’m so glad that it won It’s a very very fast read I inhaled it over 2 days and today the day I finished it is our last dry day for at least a week but rather than enjoy the outdoors I couldn’t tear myself away from this bookIt’s published as an adult book but I think it would be perfect for high school classroom reading too; it reads very much like a young adult book and its main protagonist is a young personThis book may be perfect for my real world book club; most of us are vegans and this book is appropriately thought provokingThe premise and story is extremely inventive I’m not going to say anything about the plot because I knew very little and I think my enjoyment was magnified because I came in ignorant It was fun to discover what this book was about as I started reading itIt’s a political fable and a uniue coming of age book There is a lot

    The Mount eBook ç Paperback mount mobile, The Mount EpubWhen I finished this book I picked up another to read and just couldn't do it The message in this book is really strong and it takes a bit to digest Even better I don't think there is a single message This short book was written brilliantly so you can see whatever you want in the relationshipsThis story takes place in some future or alternate timeline Through whatever means there are aliens living on earth Emshwiller did a fantastic job describing not so much what they look like she did use some descriptors but except for some fuzzy descriptions you are left entirely to your own devices to imagine what you w

    The Mount eBook ç Paperback mount mobile, The Mount EpubIt doesn’t take much guess work to figure out how this wound up on my TBR pile It’s a rather obvious allegory for animal rights although instead of apes enslaving people like in Planet of the Apes it’s an alien species with cat like ears and weak legs enslaving humans The concept is a good one but the execution fell short for me which is sad because I wanted to love itThe structure of the book is problematic The first chapter is from the perspective of an entirely random Hoot who we never see again Ever We also never see his mount again This is just weird The rest of the book is told from the first person perspective of Charley except for one random chapter narrated by his fatherI also found myself completely baffled by Charley In spite of being enslaved by the Hoots he still wishes to use a bit one day and other things that drive his father nuts and one cannot help but agree with his fatherEmshwiller does show how teenage boys clash w

    The Mount eBook ç Paperback mount mobile, The Mount EpubThis was as tasty as a strawberry treat for a sturdy steady mountI could nitpick and perhaps find technical flaws with this novel or complain about some of the vagueness and abrupt changes to the personality of certain characters near the ending but I simply enjoyed this utterly weird little gem of a story so much that it gets full marksI see others also complain about our protagonist that he is bland unexciting and uninteresting to follow because he is largely oblivious to the world around him and would view spoilerjust prefer to return to being a good mount despite being plonked right into the eye of the revolution hide spoiler

    The Mount eBook ç Paperback mount mobile, The Mount EpubAt first I hated this book and even to the end I had to work to get past the premise The book takes places on earth in a future where a small but highly intellegent race of alines Hoots have conuered and enslaved humanity They use and treat humans exactly as we use horses the Hoots ride their Mounts by sitting on their shoulders fitting the humans with bits keeping them in st
