Brian W. Aldiss ☆ The Dark Light Years book

A case of instant dislike The gentle Utods do not feel pain they change sex as the planet changes suns they live long pleasurable lives free of Brian Aldiss loved challenging the basic assumptions of Western civilisation Here it's cleanliness Most SF writers it for granted that beings from any advanced culture will keep themselves clean and neat So Aldiss introduces the Utods who are sophisticated enough to have invented interstellar travel but look vaguely like hippopotami and spend their time wallowing in their own dung The idea's nice and the ending is effective and generates suitable outrage but unfortunately the rest of the book doesn't uite live up to its initial promise Still worth reading though

The Dark Light YearsStress They wallow in their own middens But 'Civilisation is the distance man has placed between himself and his excreta' So the carnage begin SNOK SNOK OF THE GRUDGRODDThis slim novel is a wryly humorous indictment of man’s boundless arrogance Failure to comprehend an existence that is starkly at odds with our own leads to the mistaken conclusion that the utods are little than vaguely bright cattle Throughout the story the strange alien’s serene intelligence is either misconstrued or missed completely Only one man who decides to exile himself in order to observe the creatures in their own environment will ever understand the profound connection they have with their world and each otherThis isn’t one of Aldiss’s best The humour can be a little smug and the narrative seems to lack conviction Also the depth of characterisation and description doesn’t live up to that of his better work That said as always with Aldiss this is still worth a read
