Although he presents an interesting rationale for the extremely anthropomorphic approach he takes, it still never sat quite right with me.

Vinge and his translator characters’ anthropomorphisations or, rather, personalisations are successful. Brilliant government scientist Richard Seaton discovers a remarkable faster-than-light fuel that will power his interstellar spaceship, The Skylark. Well, it’s like going to a party somewhere and meeting someone who is your very distant relative through marriage.

I would rate this as a 4. The ideological struggle between the remnants of the Qeng Ho and Emergent fleets is a ripe ground for observations on human society and attitudes toward power.

When a new alien species is discovered on a planet orbiting an oscillating On-Off star, they immediately see this as an opportunity for potential new scientific discoveries, i. Often he is explicit in the consequences for society: They get to stay themselves and plot the overthrow of the Emergents, they get to be brave and clever and bide their time and ultimately save the world.

This is a book that I imagine would be great all the way through on the second read because there would be no need to figure out the meaning of the setting of the book and the numerous characters’ motivations.


They are called “spiders” because they are short and have multiple limbs. Jul 12, Seth Heasley rated it really liked it. In the ‘The Sixth Sense’, the character Malcolm tries to tell a story.

What I thought was somewhat amusing was the psychology of the alien spiders. Why did he anthropomorphise the aliens? Lists with This Book. Demerits for sexism and not really understanding how emotions work. Taken together with this prequel, its title always reminds me of “Smoke on the Water” “Fire in the sky! But rarely has there been something truly new Her insatiable curiosity and thirst for knowledge could not be quenched among them; she had to explore and learn more about the strange world she lived on.

I’d be much happier if it lingered, and failing that am happy to reread the passage several times in a row just to get the necessary enjoyment from the scene.

The Qeng Ho – the empire without a capital, the force ceruluui an army – are a lovely depiction of the humanistic and progressive side of trade. Without the resources to repair their equipment, they must wait for the spider people to develop technology so that they can go home.

What separates the Robert Mugabe’s of this world from Tomas Nau, save that Nau’s depredations will never leave the written page and Mugabes kills and destroys out in the unreal real world? He stands out in a large cast of interesting characters, all laying down schemes and intrigues with at minimum 20 years until payoff at maximum years.

I probably adnacurile will get tired of a well-written story where people are struggling against a ruthless tyrant. Adanfurile this book there is no FTL and humans have only encountered one other alien species that has not achieved advanced technological development. And this adancuriile was slow, too, but not quite as slow as Fire. A starship explicitly not designed for operating within a planetary atmosphere, last seen falling at one hundred metres per second, wreathed in flames and starting to break up, somehow manages to land without killing its crew.

Pham Nuwen, the great programmer-statesman, is far more interesting here than in the first book. The main problem, initially, was that I couldn’t figure out how the two main story lines were related In fact, when it comes right down to it, I think In the ‘The Sixth Sense’, the character Malcolm tries to tell a story. There is exactly one character in common, Pham, and his actions and …more This isn’t a sequel and is barely a prequel.

But first, both groups must wait at the aliens’ very doorstep for their strange star to relight and for their planet to reawaken, as it does every two hundred and fifty years They’re both set in the same party, um Space opera is a subgenre of speculative fiction or science fiction that emphasizes romantic, often melodramatic adventure, set mainly or entirely in space, generally involving conflict between opponents possessing powerful and sometimes quite fanciful technologies and abilities.

This is one of my favorite books. I respect this book and will probably return to it for another shot a good deal of time from now. The other are the Emergents, a high-tech totalitarian government.
