(I did read Dune & sequels years ago).
From the back cover:
A World of Water
In the Jesus Incident Herbert and Ransom introduced Ship, an artificial intelligence that believed it was God, abandoning its unworthy human cargo on the all-sea world of Pandora. Now centuries have passed. The descendants of humanity; split into Mermen and Islanders, owner is returning to life.
The Lazarus Effect is the sequel to the Jesus Incident. An exact time frame from the Jesus Incident is not given. However, it’s clear that hundreds of generations have passed.
On the now all sea world of Pandora the Islanders live on floating man-made islands while the Mermen spend their entire lives under the sea in structures they’ve built. The ship has left the system and inexplicably left behind the hibernation tanks in orbit around Pandora.
The Islanders and Mermen have a sort of rivalry, they’re not in open conflict, but they don’t trust each other either.
The Mermen are attempting to change Pandora and bring back the land. They hope to do this by restoring the kelp/avata to its previous state of consciousness. Mermen also hope to bring down the hyp tanks. Although they don’t state how they plan to do this. It takes very advanced rocketry to even put something in orbit, let alone rendezvous and bring it back to land. The idea that the hyp tanks could just float down of parachutes, doesn’t work unless the tanks had heat shields, which somehow I doubt would have been realistic.
Overall, the idea of putting people underneath the sea doesn’t hold water. The pressure would be such that humans couldn’t build stable structures or be able to dive.Read more ›
I'm truly amazed with this novel. Once again, an extraordinary book from Frank Herbert and Bill Ransom.
