Remnant Population by Elizabeth Moon Book Summary

Finalist for the Hugo Award • “Ofelia—tough, kind, wise and unwise, fond of food, tired of foolish people—is one of the most probable heroines science fiction has ever known.”—Ursula K. Le Guin

For forty years, Colony 3245.12 has been Ofelia’s home. On this planet far away in space and time from the world of her youth, she has lived and loved, weathered the death of her husband, raised her one surviving child, lovingly tended her garden, and grown placidly old. And it is here that she fully expects to finish out her days—until the shifting corporate fortunes of the Sims Bancorp Company dictates that Colony 3245.12 is to be disbanded, its residents shipped off, deep in cryo-sleep, to somewhere new and strange and not of their choosing. But while her fellow colonists grudgingly anticipate a difficult readjustment on some distant world, Ofelia savors the promise of a golden opportunity. Not starting over in the hurly-burly of a new community . . . but closing out her life in blissful solitude, in the place she has no intention of leaving. A population of one.

With everything she needs to sustain her, and her independent spirit to buoy her, Ofelia actually does start life over–for the first time on her own terms: free of the demands, the judgments, and the petty tyrannies of others. But when a reconnaissance ship returns to her idyllic domain, and its crew is mysteriously slaughtered, Ofelia realizes she is not the sole inhabitant of her paradise after all. And, when the inevitable time of first contact finally arrives, she will find her life changed yet again—in ways she could never have imagined. . . .

“Pure satisfaction from cover to cover.”—Anne McCaffrey

Remnant Population (Elizabeth Moon) Book Reviews

Wonderful DepartureElizabeth Moon usually writes about space, adventure, war, life and magic. This story is a wonderful departure from her usual affair. In short, "Remnant Population" is a story about life on a colony planet on the brink of failure, an old woman who decides she will not leave when the colony is abandoned and her adventure as the lone remaining colonist, her witness of the arrival of new colonist and their destruction in a rage filled attack by nomadic aliens, her first contact with an intelligent alien life form, and the magic of valuing our grandmothers. This was such a wonderful departure I couldn't put it down..Score: 5/5

Not bad but a little thinThe story is interesting and the main character well developed. The other human characters are mostly cartoon people which makes the final third of the book seem stilted and predetermined..Score: 3/5
