Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

High above the planet Harmony, the Oversoul watches, programmed forty million years ago to guard the human settlement from all threats, especially themselves. In the latest in the Hugo- and Nebula award-winning author's Homecoming series, the great artificial intelligence has lost control of the population, forbidden technology has been rediscovered, war has broken out, and the only repair lies light years distant on a lost and ruined Earth.

"There seems little doubt that the whole series will prove as readable--and as morally committed--as we've come to expect from Card." --Locus

I must give credit to Card for having won me over in the previous three volumes of the Homecoming Saga. Initially frustrated by the endless character development and interaction of the large group of characters and longing for the plot to move along, Card won me over to becoming interested in the characters and appreciating the nuances of the changing interactions among them. When the humans finally return to Earth and meet not one, but two sentient species, I was anticipating the plot of the meeting of peoples and looking forward to the continuing interaction of the human characters. And Card did not disappoint. Then came the final four paragraphs, when Card essentially kills off all of the human characters, save one, by jumping his Saga's clock forward until well after all of their deaths. My feeling is that Card simply got bored with his own creation and ended it --- reader be damned!
If you are reading the Homecoming Saga and enjoyed it, as I did, perhaps you should consider ending your reading four paragraphs short, put Earthfall down, and be satisifed to leave a very good series of excellent science fiction books before the author does.

If you have read into the Homecoming Saga this far, then Earthfall will not be a disapointment. On Earth, our favorite characters have begun having children and by extending thier family tree the story keeps building, pushing imaginations even further. With two new species included with the space travelers and thier children, you can't help but to be deeply connected, as if you weren't already, to the circumstances that all of the characters face. As The Ships of Earth prepared readers for this ride, Earthfall will have you creating such deep ties to the characters that the last instalment of the Saga could bring tears to your eyes. It did for me...(read the review of Earthborn for that one). Card's Earthfall was written with magnanimous proportion. I'm starting to choke up thinking about it.

I was actually quite let down by Earthfall. If you've read the first brilliant three in the Homecoming Saga you'll recognise that the story is a huge build up of tension and competition amongst the characters. Well I know it could only go on for so long, and the tension finally erupts in some places... but the big build up, between Nafai and Elemak... well it's builds up and up during the whole book again... and then everything is let down in the last few pages. An anti-climax, I can't tell what happens without spoiling things but new plot lines have taken over that have ended that brilliant one. Unless the final book in the series can redeem Earthfall, to me, it's an anti-climax.

3.0 von 5 Sternen A dissapointing ending to a terrific series. 12. Mai 1999
Von Ein Kunde

The first three books were well written (as Card is skilled at doing) and gave a reader the feeling of a very personal relationship with the characters. The first gives in depth explanations of Basilica's many oddities and peoples. The next book is much the same (in its explanation of tradition and rituals), though builds up to the city's immenent destruction. At this point you became familiar with the way things work within the main characters' minds and their interactions with one another. The third book continues on with the characters' feelings toward each other, and though the city is known to be destroyed, "you can take the beast out of the jungle, but you can't take the jungle out of the beast"--the characters are still Basilicans and behave with the same manner. The fourth book begins much the same way, though now the flight to Earth is in preparation and the mysteries of what lives on Earth and the dreams of the characters are deepening.
Then, in the middle of the book, they have landed on Earth and begin setting up civilization among the angels and diggers. Already, you are loosing the feeling of familiarity with the main characters, as some fade from the story altogether, and some, die. Also, new characters are being introduced (ones who used to have smaller roles) and are becoming main characters, and you know the story of their lives are coming to an end. At the climax of the book, the two brothers have their nations, and I , personally, saw the need for another book. Then, in the last section, in the last chapter, after forty years has passed since they've left Basilica, after the naxt generation has already given birth to a third, when the two brothers now have nations, much like Cain and Able, it ends with a swift passing of the centuries.
