The story in Carnival revolves around a couple of Earth agents in late middle age Michelangelo and Vincent who are sent to the planet New ia to obtain their impossible seeming energy source for the planetary Coalition based on Earth Earth offers to return some artwork stolen in a previous confrontation to sweeten the deal There are powerful women on New ia who are reluctant to give up the power source and there are also factions in and around the capital acting against the current government at least one of them willing to go to war for eual rights for the men living in this extremely matriarchal society Carnival reminded me of Ann Leckie s Ancillary series in a lot of ways There s political wrangling between multiple factions cool scene setting and a terrifying hegemony that acts rationally on the surface There are scenes that feel like a novel of manners and situations that encourage the reader to ponder on gender Each of these things is handled differently in each work and my reading Bear s book after Leckie s trilogy in no way diminishes it Thematically they re very different Where the Ancillary series has several characters who struggle with identity Carnival opens uestions about eugenics Is it ethical to breed and own pets To breed out undesirable traits in humans such as aggression In males in particular To eliminate seven billion people on a planet to preserve the integrity of the environmentThe plot of the novel is fairly straightforward although it tries to pretend it isn t by having the characters be coy about their intentions and rarely bring them right out into the open even when thinking to themselves Despite that it wasn t too confusing or difficult to followAngelo s and Vincent s plight was easy to empathize with They re subject to prejudice both in Earth s society and New ia s for different reasons Despite their evident love for each other their work for the Coalition has torn them apart than once and could again on this mission A few of the New ian characters were good too especially the Pretoria family that included Lesa Katya and Elena whose family bonds are strained to say the least as all the political wrangling and dueling with guns goes onI get a little grouchy when every single SF or fantasy novel s climax hinges around a violent large scale confrontation Carnival s refreshingly was small in scale and relatively peaceful and made me uestion the characters ethics in a thought provoking way Well done Carnival was a buddy read with Mimi and The SF and Fantasy Book Club and was an excellent choice

First shameful confession I couldn t remember which one of the guys was Vincent and which one was Angelo They both have a lot of names they re both determined resourceful embittered hiding things and madly in love with each other If one of them could have had a speech impediment or been a vampire that would have helped me a lot This isn t a reflection on the book though I just have a massive name thingCarnival isn t uite the novel on Matriarchy I ve been waiting for all my life but it s damned close No sentimentality about women or men no utopia a recognition that the lifestyle we choose comes at a price that is often payed by someone else and a recognition how gender is constructed and how it isn t Bear is paying particular attention to taboos in this book and result is a bit like being hit over the head with a millimetre thick sheet of ice it doesn t hurt but something shatters Vincent and Angelo are both vegans not particularly for ethical reasons although they both explain themselves that way but simply because they ve been raised in a culture where exploitation of animals is unthinkable They find the ian keeping of animals as pets abhorrent and are rather dismayed by how well the khir a native animal fits into the social fabric of ian family and public life You notice how I keep saying they Yeah I can t remember which one did what at any given point I promise I plan to reread and make notes as I go in some sort of attempt to figure out who is whoI think I can argue that the central theme being explored in the book is freedom who has it what they pay for it and who is denied it Vincent and Angelo have a certain amount of freedom as secret ish agents for their governments but they are denied a certain amount of freedom given the uasi illegal state of being homosexual The Earth government tightly controls its citizens economic and reproductive lives and Vincent and Angelo both resent this and to some extent regard it as sensible and necessaryOn New ia homosexual men enjoy slightly freedom they re regarded as less threatening less savage almost woman like in their ability to be civilized Stud males are kept much closely confinedI keep on wanting to give little clever details and grand rearrangements of status uo but the book is too densely packed and I d end up rewriting it Let it be taken as read that the world building or rather universe building is marvelousThe book is full of men and women who are willing to make personal sacrifices for a better world the tragedy comes when people who love each other sacrifice each other for a better world they can t agree onI was in agony for most of the book as Vincent and Angelo got closer and closer since I know Bear delights in tearing apart happy couples I m not telling you how it ends though you can suffer too Digital Minimalism Choosing a Focused Life in a Noisy World you how it ends though Portrait of an Addict as a Young Man A Memoir you can suffer too
