    One thought on “Songs of the Dead”

    1. This was pretty interesting. Jensen made himself a character in his own novel, which I guess is a more honest way to promote your opinions and ideas in a fictional format than the usual proxy characters one encounters in these kinds of books. His character is the narrator and protagonist, so I estimate that about half of the book reads more like his usual nonfiction than what I expect from a novel. A main theme: Like any invasive species after an extended period of population explosion which cro [...]

    2. I love that Jensen includes pretty intense women's studies discussion in normal conversation between the main character and his partner/lover. And that the conversation is mixed into everyday interaction: during picnics, car rides, sex,etc. Here's a man who has learned well from the women around him what it means to be a woman in a patriarchal society.For some reason the last half of the book held a little less magic for me. But it was still good. Derrick Jensen is pretty amazing.

    3. I love Derrick Jensen's books and this one is no differentSongs of the Dead is part novel and part non-fiction. He makes the point that we are destroying all life on earth - and how "life" feels about what we are doing to it - through a storyI loved Derrick's "dropping through time" in the story - a great way of showing differences in time and yet remaining cohesive

    4. I'm giving it four stars for uniqueness. Disturbing, thought provoking. This guy seems to promote violent reaction to those who are violent in destroying our earth. I visited his web page and he seems pretty interested there in selling stuff. I wonder what Derrick Jensen is really like.
