This was a random grab off a used bookstore shelf but I ended up really enjoying it! The story, except for the very beginning, is confined to a single planet so there's less straight sci-fi than I anticipated, but there's still the presence of aliens. It's written in a pretty anthropological style similar to Ursula LeGuin which made it right up my alley. There were some questionable gender politics at times, but they ended up turning into pretty bad-ass gender politics and the female protagonist was fantastic. I'll definitely read the other three books in the series.
