In which I share vague recollections of books I read long ago that have stuck with me.
|The cover is the only part that's |
exactly as I remember it.
All I remember is that it was a love story between a human woman and an alien man. In reality, it's about a woman who is accidentally kidnapped by aliens (accidentally as in they meant to kidnap someone else) and taken to a planet called Yargo. The people there do not have feelings or emotions, but she falls in love with one of them who, I gather, is not able to return her feelings.
What I remember about it is many intense feelings of love and romance and, oh, what a beautiful story about people from two different planets who fall deeply in love. I cannot reconcile my memories with what is apparently the reality of the story.
This is a great example of a book that I remember really loving, but that is actually terrible, so as much as I'm tempted to read it again I know that is very bad idea. I'd love to recapture what I felt when I first read it, but from the reviews I just read online I feel certain that wouldn't happen. In fact, it doesn't even sound like a love story from what I just read so I have to wonder how much of my experience was my imagination.
Did any of you ever read this book? What do you remember of it?
