Fluency - Jennifer Foehner Wells

I'm not impressed with this so far. When I originally heard about it, it was billed as linguistic science fiction, but that's not really what I'm getting from it. The main character seems to be just sort of naturally linguistically gifted, and the alien's one appearance indicates that it's probably telepathic. Add to that my extreme dislike of the character I think is being set up as the main character's love interest, and the result is disappointment. Here's hoping it improves.
