Natural History by Justina Robson

Hello everyone! I'm not sure if this is allowed or not, but I have been trying to find this book. I cannot seem to find it in my small town and I dont have the money to purchase it. I was wondering if anyone would be willing to loan me a copy or to swap it for a book that I have. If so please let me know! I would like to have it before May 31st, because I am doing the group discussion thru calico reaction if possible. Thanks!

Are you sure you don't have the money? It's pretty cheap. There are copies on amazon that sell for less than a dollar (i just checked to make sure). So if you can spare or borrow the 5 dollars it would come out to with shipping, there's your copy.

Yeah. I may just have to break down and ask my parents.

So sorry. I got my copy from the library so I cannot loan it out. I take if you've already checked your local library? If they themselves don't have a copy, do you know if they have inter-library loan? I used to live in a small town (library was only open twelve hours week, and less in the winter with the oil bill), and although they didn't have any formal kind of ILL they had an agreement with one of the larger libraries in Maine. So if the large library had the book, they could ship it to my small town library. Sometimes it took a week or two though. I would suggest asking your librarian if there are any options like I had.

I live in a small town too, and my library does the same thing with a few other libraries.

I have no idea? This is what goodreads says about it : A daring and original new novel from one of sci fi’s most provocative voices, Natural History is a stunning work of bold ideas, unforgettable characters, and epic adventure as one woman seeks to explore what may be the greatest mystery of all....

Half-human, half-machine, Voyager Isol was as beautiful as a coiled scorpion–and just as dangerous. Her claim that she’d found a distant but habitable earthlike planet was welcome news to the rest of the Forged. But it could mean the end of what was left of the humanity who’d created and once enslaved them.

It was on behalf of the “unevolved” humans that Professor Zephyr Duquesne, cultural archaeologist and historian of Earth’s lost worlds, was chosen by the Gaiasol military authority to uncover the truth about this second “earth.” And her voyage, traveling inside the body of Isol, will take her to the center of a storm exploding across a spectrum of space and time, dimension and consciousness.

On an abandoned planet, in a wrinkle of time, Isol and Zephyr will find a gift and a curse: a power so vast that once unlocked, it will change the universe forever. With civil war looming, Zephyr’s perilous journey will lead her to a past where one civilization mysteriously vanished...and another may soon follow.
