Found: Sci Fi Trilogy em Name that Book (Novembro 2023)

Críticas

Some compelling what-ifs, but way too long and full of unncessary and unpleasant plotlines that detract from the suspense.

The adjective "Heinleinesque" is terribly overused. But in this case, it is quite apt. The echoes of Heinlein's "juveniles" (a term I dislike because it makes them sound less good than they are) are to be found throughout this whole book: the folksy vernacular, the emphasis on a teen-age character being thrust into situations that would challenge adults, etc. What I most appreciated about this book, though, was the science. Barnes really did his homework here; the science behind the story is good and solid. Unlike far too many authors I have read, he does not forget (ever) that his characters are moving in a lower gravity field. Little things like that mean a lot to me.

The only reason I'm not giving this a 5-star rating is because I'm not sure I'll come back and re-read it at some later date. (Only re-readables get the highest rating from me.) But if I do wind up re-reading it (and there's a better than average chance of this), then I'll raise my rating.

Lots of verisimilitude help this to feel real. However a huge lack of narrative keeps it from being anything but a below average techno thriller.

This book was maddening. Some parts of it were really good. Others dragged on forever. The whole book had the feel of setting up the rest of the series. I will probably give the next one a chance but it won't get much of a chance. This felt like a near miss.
