Productbeschrijving

Winner of the 30th anniversary Arthur C. Clarke Award for Best Novel

Adrian Tchaikovksy's critically acclaimed, stand-alone novel Children of Time, is the epic story of humanity's battle for survival on a terraformed planet.

Who will inherit this new Earth?

The last remnants of the human race left a dying Earth, desperate to find a new home among the stars. Following in the footsteps of their ancestors, they discover the greatest treasure of the past age - a world terraformed and prepared for human life.

But all is not right in this new Eden. In the long years since the planet was abandoned, the work of its architects has borne disastrous fruit. The planet is not waiting for them, pristine and unoccupied. New masters have turned it from a refuge into mankind's worst nightmare.

Now two civilizations are on a collision course, both testing the boundaries of what they will do to survive. As the fate of humanity hangs in the balance, who are the true heirs of this new Earth?

De helft van dit boek is geschreven vanuit het gezichtspunt van ... spinnen. Na het lezen van dit boek ben ik deze angstaanwekkende doch doorgaans ongevaarlijke harige achtpotige beestjes veel interessanter gaan vinden.

Deze prachtig opgezette sciencefiction roman gaat niet over spinnenvrees. Het beschrijft een wanhopige poging van de mensheid om te ontsnappen aan de vrijwel compleet door de mens vernietigde planeet Aarde. Tegelijktertijd wordt het ontstaan van een nieuw leven met bewustzijn, dat per ongeluk op een kunstmatige wijze is ontstaan, duidelijk beschreven.

Hoe het verhaal afloopt zal ik niet verklappen. Een zeer onderhoudend boek.

5.0 van 5 sterren Unique, smart, well written, thought provoking, excellent! 8 maart 2017
door CO Native - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com
Geverifieerde aankoop
This book totally surprised me. there are basically two story lines running side by side. one explores a new civilization as it develops literally from the ground up. that while the other story line provides a perspective on a developed society which turns inward and barbaric. both in the same time frame, same extra-solar planetary system. the science, tech, anthropology and sociological aspects are so exceedingly well integrated into the work, just wow!

i have been an avid reader of science fiction my entire life. a gift my father passed on down to me. it is exceedingly rare for me to come across a book that is so unique in both the subject matter and how it portrays the 'big picture.' anyone who enjoys smart thought provoking science fiction will absolutely be thrilled by this book.

5.0 van 5 sterren Lovely 26 maart 2017

Geverifieerde aankoop
Excellent novel and one of the most original premises I've ever come across, even in SiFi. Humanity is having its last gasp with all that's left of them crammed into one slowly decaying ship as 'key crew' wake themselves up periodically to care for the ship and to keep a look out for a suitable planet for them to land on. Seen through the eyes of the 'classist', the story takes place over the thousands of years it takes for the ship to find a place to land.Unfortunately, the previous humans, the Ancient ones--who were revered by everyone but the classist who learns more than he wants to know about his ancestors--had one last battle even as they were trying to terraform a new world for themselves after ruining their own, ended up seeding a planet with a nightmare species.
What I loved about this book, is how the author understands both the human mind, and the mind of the species left to seed the new world. The ending is so surprising, and so satisfying that I will happily read more of his books. His intelligence must be off the chart to be able to write this particuliar novel considering how he got into the head of a totally different species.

5.0 van 5 sterren Nothing more to say than EXCELLENT 23 mei 2016

Best hard science fiction book I've read in over 10 years. When I initially purchased the book for my Kindle Paperwhite, I didn't look at the page count and just stated reading. Two and a half days and 600 plus pages later (I do have to work), I finished this wonderful book. It's one of those books you cannot put down. I wont say anything about the story line because I hate spoilers, even little ones, all I will say is that if you like hard science fiction, you will love this book. Keep writing books like this Adrian.

5.0 van 5 sterren A complex, well-crafted and highly original novel 26 april 2017
door 6502 - Gepubliceerd op Amazon.com

What a wonderful surprise this book is. It's an especially rare beast in the scifi world in that it combines very original ideas with well-crafted and detailed characters and complex storylines woven into a main plot and multiple subplots. Despite all that complexity, the author's clear and entertaining writing makes the storyline easy to follow.

Perhaps my deepest appreciation for the book is that it departs from the "wish-fulfillment" motif of so many scifi novels from the 50s through the present. You know what I mean: the Heinlein-like plots where the hero uses his ingenuity and pluck to defeat a resource-rich foe in order to save the planet and win the girl. Those types of plots don't have a story "arc" so much as a straight line from beginning to end. And always told from the perspective of a male with the emotional maturity of a teenager.

Not so with Children of Time. At least half the characters are female and those characters are in the "traditional" male roles, like engineering and political leadership. And the male characters are also used in unique and interesting ways. (Warning: slight spoiler ahead) Probably my favorite is a male creature (not human) making the case and risking his life for gender equality among his species. This subplot came out of nowhere in the story, but fits perfectly within the story's fabric. It's also an example of the type of writing and complexity all too often missing from modern scifi.

I have never mentioned this before in a review, but the author's vocabulary is also worth noting: three or four times I found a new word that I had never encountered before. ("Hurray!" for the online dictionary function in Kindle.) But Mr. Tchaikovsky does not use his impressive vocabulary or intimidate: he is just a writer with a broad, well-educated mind who has stories to tell.

This is my favorite book in years. Well done, Mr. Tchaikovsky.
5.0 van 5 sterren Great true science fiction with an ambitious dive into alien psychology and culture. 16 juni 2017

No Spoilers - I'm writing this from a high level because I think this book is best read without knowing anything about it. I don't write many book reviews, but this one deserves some comments. Not many people take this kind of subject matter on anymore. This book is ambitious to say the least, and although it is not perfect, it is definitely one of the better true science fiction books I've read in many years. While not an avid reader, I probably do 25-35 books a year, predominately in the hard science fiction genre, and my passion is for first contact or books that deal with alien cultures. These seem to be hard to come by in recent years, especially when dealing with alternate psychology and ethnocentric alien subject matter.

I believe that this book represents the author's first trip into the science fiction realm, being predominately a fantasy author prior to this, but man - does he do a great job. If you want to read something with alternate views from an alien perspective, this is a good read for you. Just enough science thrown in to make it very interesting, but not enough to throw off readers who aren't into that. (I could have gone with a lot more science, but I won't complain.)

The story itself is on the higher end of good, but not great. I never felt a lot of emotional ties to the characters, especially the humans. I would have liked to have seen some more detail in the primary alien protagonist Portia, I think this could have helped with the emotional ties into the story. I would have also like to see more of a hero on the Human side of things. However, I don't disagree with the authors perception of humans - it is just a bitter reality to read through parts of the book where you feel the humans could be better people than they are.

I really liked the ending. It was one of the rare book that I was unhappy to see ending - even at 600 pages. I'm really hoping to see a follow up to this. I'm definitely adding this very talented author to my favorites list.
