Well written but not gripping...
It's obviously well written, and the author took a lot of care, but I couldn't get into it. For one thing, too many characters to follow. There isn't really a plot per se - the story is diffused across several generations. I like sci-fi and this didn't perk any of my sci-fi nerves.
An original plot - kept me engaged, especially after the first few chapters. How would an intelligent plant evolve socially as it looks for a symbiotic relationship with humans? This story takes the reader through that evolution in a captivating manner.
First contact as never done before
