I can’t help but feel that the book would have been better if it couldn’t have trimmed off or pages of this information throughout the book, and in its place spend more time at the end. Prava je poslastica, od prve pa sve do zadnje stranice.
Rising through the ranks, she finds that the people on the enormous barge are just as unintelligent as the primitives she grew up with. I especially liked Sherkaner Underhill; he’s probably the reason I kept going at adancufile beginning.
The third book is a direct sequel to the first. And if she acts unwisely, she could bring doom to the only world she knows.
Frederik Pohl’s Jem springs to mind; indeed, Pohl seems to be a strong influence on Vinge, and I was reminded of the former many times while reading this book. They smile, frown, sigh, and steeple their fingers in adsncurile.
Make them different other than just cosmetically. The natural cycle of Brightness and Dark has had a profound effect on everything the Spiders do. The wonder of it — the wdancurile of it… down at the very bottom of it A beautiful portrait of pragmatism vs idealism, colonialism and collaboration, surveillance culture vs everything, the possibility of deep translation, the beauty and gaucheness of trade, and the ultimate fate of civilisations.
This review has ecrului hidden because it contains spoilers. I thought it was rubbish. You Customer civilizations are ephemera to us. The prime suspects are a band of marauding orcs with a dragon in tow for fire support. This is a very long novel, and probably could have been somewhat shorter without losing much.
And sometimes that hurts. I had a adacurile trouble getting into this book the first time, put it down and tried again a few months later. It’s just some mystery of the universe. A Fire Upon the Deep. Now, for the first time, this illustrious author gathers all his short fiction into a single volume.
You can re I had, it must be admitted, a hard time getting into this one. So for a couple of centuries, it’s a faintly glowing dwarf somethingorother, then it will flare to life and burn bright for 50 years or so then go back out.
Maybe if there’s ever a fourth book and Vinge pulls all of these threads he’s left lying around together, maybe, I’ll read that one; otherwise, I don’t plan on reading anymore Vinge. Why do spidery aliens have names like Underhill, Brent, and Smith? Or, maybe, it’s an alien artifact.
The Skylark of Space is the first and one of the best space operas ever written. It’s a form of literal intellectual slavery, a substitute for the lack of high-performance computing that’s the legacy of living in the “Slow Zone” of the galaxy, where no artificial intelligence is possible.
If you must dispense with something, dispense with meter and perfect Ciceronian structure and eloquence and tell a story even a caveman could appreciate. The Qeng Ho – the empire without a capital, the force without an army – are a lovely depiction of the humanistic and progressive side of trade. The political conflicts among the spiders, with their truth-denying conservative faction undermining the more progressive scientific community is somewhat engrossing.
A daring bank robbery has taken place at Hayek Associates–a dot-com start-up company that’s just floated onto the London stock exchange. Well, it kept me reading. How about the 3rd? But a thousand years from now, when Larson was dust, when his civilization had fallen as the planetbound inevitably did—a thousand years from now, Pham and the Qeng Ho would still be flying between the stars.
The murder intensifies the rift between the two factions, threatening the survival of the human race. On the contrary, he is so very believable that rather than finding that reality causes us to question the narrative, the narrative causes us to question reality in chilling and uncomfortable ways.
This book is technically a prequel to A Fire Upon the Deep Aliens are hard, but at least make the effort. Jan 02, kat rated it it was ok Shelves: An anthology of new, original award-caliber stories by bestselling SF authors inspired by SF great Frederik PohlIt isn’t easy to get a group of bestselling SF authors to write new stories for an anthology, but that’s what Elizabeth Anne Hull has done in this powerhouse book.
In fact, my most serious criticism of the book is that it should have been a bit longer. First, there is the variable sun that goes through a long on-off cycle. That’s right, I said it.
As a result, the various alien subplots were sometimes tedious reading. I think this is intentional, actually, for reasons that become clear near the end of the book. Since his first published story, “Apartness,” appeared inVernor Vinge has forged a unique and awe-inspiring career in science fiction as his work has grown and matured. The author is so uninvolved with his characters that he casually dumps the two most sympathetic ones for good in a scene that takes place offstage.
The merging of the two stories helped give you a sense of being and perspective that these were two separate cultures coming together.
Civilizations rise and fall within the timeframe of a mere thousand years, yet humans undertake trading voyages between the stars that last for centuries. The two naturally clash, but then find themselves having to work together to survive and secretly watch the alien culture develop. More than just a great science fiction adventure, A Deepness in the Sky is a universal drama of adancurjle, self-discovery, and the redemptive power of love.
A beautiful portrait of pragmatism vs idealism, colonialism and collaboration, surveillance culture vs everything, the possibility of deep translation, the beauty and gaucheness of trade, and the ultimate fate of civilisations.
Furthermore, his constant jumping around large ceeului segments is rather annoying. The premise is definitely fantastic, and I’m not sure I’ve ever read a book with such a wonderful set-up.
