Today in class, we were roleplaying situations in which empathy and sympathy were to be prompted. How to best communicate with an alien by improving social communication was a fun scenario till all the students of the group decided to become aliens except for one. I won’t go into the details, but later on, I was brooding over this: Have you read any books in which all the characters were non-humans? Would you enjoy it while, most likely, lacking an emotional connection to the characters? Would any of you writers consider this idea?
