Bookfilter: Books where protagonists are transformed into animals/aliens/etc for extended periods?
posted by solarion to media & arts (29 answers total) 11 users marked this as a favorite
I recently read Up The Walls of the World
by James Tiptree. This in turn reminded me of a couple of other books I'd read (The Colour of Distance
, the Animorphs series when I was a wee lad) and made me realize I find transformative aspects interesting - the reaction of characters to new physiology, the adjustment period, culture shock, etc.
So can anybody recommend some more adult-directed books exploring this concept? (I'm sure there's a fair few teenage ones, but - as with Animorphs when I look at it now - the prose and storytelling in those is often more questionable.)
