This was the first Tepper book that I read. My cousin lent it to me saying, "This was weird,it's your kind of book." She was right. I have never read anything quiet like it and I wish that Tepper wrote a sequel. Very entertaining. One of my favorite books.

When I first read Grass ten years ago, it blew me away with its masterful world building and strange emotional tension. I went on to read most of Shari Tepper's other work, some of which link together loosely in what her readers call the "Arbai World," but I believe that Grass is considered her masterpiece. This is the one to start with. I like this book so much that I have gotten several copies to give away.

Excellent. Political intrigue, religious plots, inimical and enigmatic aliens, plague, and dysfunctional personal relationships...

A very enjoyable read. Different from most sci-fi books. Believable characters that involved me.
