The Chronicles of Mavin Manyshaped Reviews
Probably the best trilogy I read growing up, since I didn't discover Andre Norton until I was grown. I really wish this lady's newer books were as good, but they really aren't. These are her best, and it goes slowly downhill from here.
I love all of the True Game books. This was the first one I read and I love Mavin, she is a fully developed character full of faults and failings as well as strengths and talents. Tepper knows how to write strong women!
Sheri Tepper is one of my favourite fantasy writers, and this book didn't disappoint. I also am particularly intrigued by the idea of shape-shifters, so this one gave me a double boost of pleasure.Originally this was published as three separate books, though they most definitely belong together. It begins with Mavin in her 'family' stronghold, and one thinks of mediaeval villages with a keep that is there for safety (though this isn't precisely the picture she paints). She is about to come of age, and has no idea that this entails a responsibility to bear children for the clan. She will be the second of only two child-bearing women there.What follows is an epic adventure, and I can't say anything more without this becoming a spoiler. So I won't.
Mavin is a multifaceted character and she is unique in literature.She is her own person, and though the first book which details the early part of her life is not easy to digest, the nastiness and lewd behaviour of people around her..... but Mavin's triumph over those hurdles is amazingly well written.It's fun to read but there is an odd, other-worldliness about the whole story, almost like Ms Tepper walked into the Twilight world of Patricia McKillip's books.The more you visualize, the more you're entrenched.
A trilogy that hooks you in from the beginning with imagination and compelling characters. The shape shifting was completely new to me and was excellently written and was thoroughly thought through. I really enjoy Tepper's feminist slant on things, and I love reading strong female characters especially when fantasy and sci-fi can be so focused on male characters. This is a brilliant, dark and entertaining novel and I can't wait to start reading The End of the Game.
I can see why she is viewed as a feminist writer. Given that most fantasy is the opposite in my experience , it was a very interesting and refreshing read. I am interested to read some of her more direct feminist works. I really liked the titular character and wished we could have seen some of her other adventures. The book series spanned so much time I feel like I missed out.
This second trilogy in the Land of the True Game series goes back in time to give us, as the title says, the chronicles of Mavin Manyshaped (Peter's mother). Not quite as enthralling as the first trilogy but it does show the beginnings of a more feminist viewpoint which was the hallmark of many of Tepper's later works.
Mavin rocks! She's tough, funny, kind and mysterious. The world she inhabits has Sheri S. Tepper's usual deft, imaginative touch, along with plenty of characters to love or loathe. This is another series that I read over and over.
Shapeshifting. Female MC. Kick arse MC. Great imagination.
When Sheri Tepper is on form, not much can beat her. Older stuff is definitely better. I will happily read and re-read the books of the True Game until I am an old, old lady.
