I'm not quite sure how much George R. R. Martin was involved in this book, it doesn't feel like its his writing style to me, but I have to say it is still extremely well written. Beautiful detail and descriptions and a compelling story you just have to finish. If this is all Lisa Tuttle's work I will be looking for more in the future. If I have any complaints, its that there is not enough back story of how they came to be on Windhaven, it is talked about but I felt it needed a bit more.
The narration is very good, Harriet Walter's use of accents is superb, you can lose yourself in the book and know exactly which character is talking, they feel just right.
Hope this helps whoever is planning to read it, I enjoyed it very much.

For me this was a story about the struggle for equality, challenging tradition and arguing for a system that gives equal opportunities to all regardless of birth right. It's akin to the civil rights movement of the 1960s. The subject was cleverly argued and also highlighted some very important aspects of the human nature: the privelleged will never willingly support a change that threatens their way of life and that with change sometimes comes unintended consequences.
Interesting story. I quite enjoyed it and some bits even had me on tenterhooks.

The narration was good but did little to improve a poorly written work. not recommended.
some great moments and I enjoyed the character development. The three stages of story were also effective.
