Os Guerreiros da Madrugada Reviews
First of all: Pay No Attention to the "#1" in this title. This is the second book of the series. It takes place a very long time after The Gamplayers of Zan, and if you haven't read Gameplayers then you will not appreciate this book's references to the past, nor will you have anywhere near as good an understanding of Ler culture.This is a difficult book to rate because it is so uneven. The overall quality of the prose itself is very good, but the plot progresses in fits and starts. About midway [...]
Amusing sci-fi that started so well. It turned into a stark and detailed journey to an alien world. The villians are well drawn out and the plot is somewhat interesting. The personal relationships could have been a hair sharper but I saw very few typos or other such problems. This book is just in the okay pile. I like to be wowed or inspired. Science fiction just does not inspire me very often. This story just lacks the indefinable spark that sets me on fire. Perhaps it will light the torch for [...]
Really didn't hold my interest. I think part of the problem was the writing style, which came across to me as choppy and disconnected, and part of it was that I just didn't find his ler as compelling as the author seemed to. About the most interesting thing was Usteyn's story block which I thought was a really cool idea and would have liked to see more of, also the ending was effective at creating a sense of completeness. Still, I don't see myself rereading this any time soon
1986 grade A-2015 grade A-/B+Series book L1- - This is a very good book. The characters and story are complex and detailed and have a lot of growth and depth. The pace includes both slow and fast areas with action and detail.- - But it is also a long a difficult read which I had to do in segments. There are several slow long journeys and past the first 100 or so pages, many of the paragraphs are long data dumps or dialog based lectures. I had difficulty speed reading these via skimming and final [...]
I got about 60% through this first of the series anticipating that I would read all of them.Unfortunately, I just could not get into it. There were some interesting ideas, but when it gets to the point where I am reading words only to drudge through them and you are 1t 60% it is time to put the book down.Perhaps I will make another go at it, but for now, I could not give this a good recommendation.
One of the best sci if I have ever read. The klesh resonated with me particularly but I also enjoyed the detailed 'alien' societies and who doesn't love a space opera?
