Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Rarely do I write reviews....but this book was sooooo bad I felt I had to warn others. Touted as the brain child of a hard science writer of science fiction, I was looking forward to a thrilling tale of exploration of this planet and its flora, fauna and the interaction of the colonist. What I got was some globlty gloop of avant garde artsy fartsy trash that reminded me of those horrible nonsensical prose pieces found in beatnik coffee houses being spouted by young people with no practical knowledge or experience of the world. It was so bad that 1/2 way in the second story I skipped ahead to the third one. A quarter of the way into it....I did something I actually don't believe in...but in this case...I had to excise my soul......I threw it in the trash can! And then mentally vomited into the can to get it out of my head before it became some form of flesh eating disease to my cognitive thought. I recommend you only take this book if you are going camping. Bring along a small can of lighter fluid and a flint starter. You will have all the components you need to start a fire which is about all this book will ever be good for. I pray the ghost of Poul Anderson bludgeons the publisher in his sleep for allowing this monstrosity to ever be borne.
