The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin
The differences in gender and understanding gave much to ponder. We are so reliant on gender identification that I find it hard to overlook. Even though it doesn't really matter, a person's gender, it is something I naturally assign. It takes conscious thought for me to avoid.
The second part was much more captivating; a three month long trip over a glacier is the stuff of nightmares or Antarctic exploration. This I read with rapt attention eager for their next days travel. Averaging the two parts, the book makes for a reasonable read.
