Embassytown - China MiƩville
A first person story that stays faithful to a first person recollection. Had slight difficulty immersing (no pun intended for those who have read the book) in the setting. Ignorance of the society and slow understanding in some ways fits with the story, where the narrator herself is in some ways deliberately ignorant and separate from the culture she came from and then forced into revelation. Even when struggling to understand the settings and descriptions are gorgeous and creative.
