    Paperback ☆ The Fresco MOBI · fresco ebok, The Fresco eBookI’ve read quite a few of Sheri Tepper’s books I usually consider them a guaranteed entertaining read regardless of the author’s tendency to preach her spiritualecological agenda and her tendency toward overwrought denouements I can take that in stride when balanced out by vivid worldbuilding unique and interesting settings and social extrapolation and dramatic events that ofter veer toward the horrific Lots of Tepper’s books have lots of that good stuffThis one features none of Tepper’s strengths and practically works as a showcase for all of her weaknesses I think most of the problem here is that it’s set in present day Earth rather than a fantasy world Usu

    Paperback ☆ The Fresco MOBI · fresco ebok, The Fresco eBookThis was one of the most captivating and enjoyable sci fi reads I've found in ages It does not try to follow the typical alien visitation and occupation formula beyond the initial take me to your leader Instead Sheri Tepper twists and turns the plot in ways that you don't see coming but which certainly make sense once you find out where you've landed Her sense of humor is wicked and I found myself cheering on characters laughing out loud at some of the clever cures the aliens had for what ail

    Paperback ☆ The Fresco MOBI · fresco ebok, The Fresco eBookI just finished reading The Fresco by Sherri S Tepper who is now officially my most favorite author ever Everytime I read one of her books I'm amazed at how she can take many complexities and boil them down to simple lessons about truth and life In The Fresco Ms Tepper uses several different alien species to weave a tale that teaches about family religion and neighborliness and she does it all in a way that will make you laugh out loud many timesThe book begins with an abused latina wife of an alcoholic loser Benita Shipton who meets a pair of aliens in a remote backwoods area They choose her to be the intermediary between their confederation of alien planets and the Earth The friendly aliens called the Pistach announce their arrival to Earth and state that we will have to learn to be neighborly before we will be allowed to enter their confederation of advanced speciesFinding the Middle Eastern wa

    Paperback ☆ The Fresco MOBI · fresco ebok, The Fresco eBookExcellent worldbuilding derailed significantly by needless political pontificating The ending was offensive to good sense and the rest of the novel as a whole I felt like Ms Tepping was sitting next to me nudging me with her elbow and saying Do you get it? Did you see what I did there? Do you get the parallels? Authors when you manage to annoy me by preaching politics I generally agree with there's something wrong Minus stars for ideological mud slinging but plus for fascinating worldbuild

    Paperback ☆ The Fresco MOBI · fresco ebok, The Fresco eBookI am a huge Sheri Tepper fan However this book was a disaster Clunky prose and over the top preaching kept me from ever becoming immersed in this tale If Ms Tepper and I were to have a chat over coffee I'd imagine we'd agree on almost everything However I don't need to be whacked over the head repeatedly with the political views of this book I get it already In short this book gave me a concussion

    Paperback ☆ The Fresco MOBI · fresco ebok, The Fresco eBookI have in the past enjoyed some of this author's novels but thoroughly disliked others This one almost scraped into the 'OK' category because there are some aspects which were enjoyable The trouble is these are outweighed by the Mary Sue nature of the protagonist Benita abused dormat wife turns into confident articulate representative after suitable 'adjustment' by benevolent and powerful aliens and the wish fulfilment which resolves all the world's problems by the intervention of those same aliensThere are a couple of subplots dealing with other inimical aliens and their alliance with a small coterie of reactionary anti feminist anti environment politicians but those difficulties are fairly easily swept aside And the central connundrum of a civilisation which has based its peaceful interventionist stance on a false reading of a work that has been deliberately obscured the Fresco of the title is satisfied by a solution in which the ends satisfy the means Th

    Paperback ☆ The Fresco MOBI · fresco ebok, The Fresco eBookI loved this book I am having a hard time articulating even to myself why I liked it so much It doesn't have super exciting action scenes There's some cool technology but none of it is explained in any way The ending was a little too simple every bad guy got what was coming to him and everyone else got a happy ending However something about the story and the character of Benita just grabbed me from the start and I was totally sucked into the bookThe core idea of the book really resonated with me how culturesreligions become ossified by the revering of ancient artifacts such as scriptures or in the case of the aliens a fresco whose validity is lost in the mists of time while the original basic decent message is ignored I love this quote You reminded me about the Dead Sea Scrol

    Paperback ☆ The Fresco MOBI · fresco ebok, The Fresco eBookTepper at some of her most preachyI like the fact that this writer has issues to address and she has always been one of my favourite feminist authors and I appreciate her environmental stance However in recent years she has abandoned subtlety or balance to lead us around by the nose as well as here espousing the dubious stance that the end justifies the means or perhaps it is simply that it is perfectly fine to meddle with other cultures in underhanded and mendacious ways if it for their own good And who decides what is good? Well the meddler of courseThe worrying thing about this book was how it seemed to morph from blunt instrument feminist environmental stance to pro American cultural imperialism almost seamlessly Naturally we should take steps to protect vulnerable women from abusive husbands We should also support the
