Inhaltsangabe

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?

Conceptually very interesting

"Story"
There are a whole range of really interesting concepts and ideas in this this book. This makes the story quite unique and gives you plenty to think about.

"Writing Style"
In many ways this is refreshingly different. No classic story arch, barely any clichée. But the story is spread out over quite a long time and characters, so I couldn't really bond with any of them. About half the chapters are written like lab book entries (not really, but at least really detached and observing).

"Narrator"
I think I would have chosen a male speaker - partly for just personal preference, partly because most main characters (that actually have a spoken language) are male. Anyways, I think Mel Hudson does a quite good job -- the sample provided is quite indicative.

One of the best SciFi I have read in a long time!

On par with the Hyperion Cantus. Amazingly mind-boggling. A whole new world. 1 2 3

maybe better when reading

As an audio book sometimes very hard to follow. can't exactly tell if it because of a confusing interwoven storyline. or because of the voice and manner. still happy that I listened till the unexpected ending.

Not what i expected - in a good way

This book has a lot i like in science fiction.
Postapocalyptic, exploring of interesting new concepts and ultimately the exploration of humanity, well not russian literature deep but a little bit at least.
The other 'aliens' (don't want to spoil) are neither monsters nor perfect creatures like elves in fantasy, it's perfect.
The ending is maybe a little bit too good to be true. But as long as.... No, no spoilers..... 🙄

Durchhalten ist angesagt

Anfangs bis zur Hälfte langatmig, teilweise der monotonen Erzählerin geschuldet. Das letzte Drittel wird aber richtig gut! Coole Story =)

full marks. great voice artist and a great story.

This is science fiction at it's best, which I'd instantly place among the pantheon of great works in the genre. Similar to Kim Stanley Robinson's Aurora, it seeks to realistically portray the harsh realities of life on a "generation ship", but at the same time delves into bio-punk — just how alien, yet familiar, sentiences can arise from common terrestrial biology, if left of to evolution (and deus ex mechnina nano-tech) .

straightforward

a competently constructed story that failed to engage me with its prose or themes. what you see is what you get, but I was hoping for something a bit more layered.

Hervorragendes Buch!

Ich hatte sehr viel Spaß beim hören. Ein klasse Buch. Super Ende. Super Story.
Und eine sehr interessante Sichtweise auf die Welt wird nachvollziehbar erzählt.
Empfehlenswert!
