    1. Every so often I semi-randomly pick up a second-hand science fiction book about which I know nothing, because otherwise one can get into canonical ruts. This one made the cut through having a cover which looked like Roger Dean after he’d been at the Bosch (have I ever mentioned how much I love Pan’s covers?), and a raised-eyebrow blurb trying not to get too overexcited while praising the lesbian scene between a human and an orchid. Because yes, this book was published in 1969 – the rudest [...]


    2. It should have been good, but the style dented the weird human-on-plant erotica there was to be had. Also, for a novel that's taking place in the year 2237, things haven't really advanced that much. Yeah, there is space travel, sure, but back here on good old Earth we're still using standard mail, normal telephones, typewriters, paper, and film that has to be developed. But most annoying thing is that it's one of the those novels where everyone speaks in witty repartee and quips while all end up [...]



    3. "nwhytevejournal/1343991ml[return][return]This is the book which begins by describing its heroine as 'blond [rather than blonde] and ovately willowy'. I guess I am convinced that she is thin with wide, childbearing hips, but it is possible to imagine a more comprehensible description.[return][return]Anyway, Freda Caron is a botanist working on some strange flowers from a newly discovered planet. That's basically the plot. Boyd appears to be trying to say deep things about sexuality and sexual po [...]


    4. Strange story. Written in the 1960's about the 23rd century but the author did not foresee mobile phones, the internet or personal computers.Plant specialists have a high place in society and resorces to travel the universe and on Flora the plants have made and Eden but how do the pollinate as there are no insects. In the end Dr Janet Caron is seduced in more ways than one by the plants and orchids in particular. Not a memorable sc-fi novel.



    5. There were a few neat ideas in this book, but overall I couldn't stand any of the characters or the author's obsession with the politics of administration. Between that and Freda's constant nagging at or about Hal and his poor methodology I quickly grew bored and wouldn't have finished if it weren't such a short read.


    6. The first 180 pages of this book are pretty boring more about administration, office politics and scientific methodology. But then it finally turns weird like the cover copy promises with plant sex, seed babies, and orchid seduction dreams. If only it was more of the latter


    7. If I could give this book a negative star I would. Some of the worst science, no understanding of basic evolutionary botany. I consider this one of the worst books I've ever read.


    8. This is a truly weird book, exploring strange sexuality between a woman and a plant, and probably inspired by the sexual revolution of the 1970's. Its actually quite a fun read.


    9. One has to admire anyone who would essay to write an erotic novel about plants without the influence of psychotropics. In this case, however, and given the date of authorship, one suspects such aid.



    10. Written in the 1960's the view of women here was a bit dated. But what a ride and what an ending. One that I did not foresee.
