Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

Harry Turtledove pays tribute to pulp science fiction, combining a favorite plot--invasion by technologically superior aliens--with an alternate history of WWII and its aftermath. His Worldwar Series began the story when a fleet of lizard-like aliens arrived to conquer Earth in May 1942. It ended in 1945 with a negotiated peace between the Race, the nuclear powers (the Reich, the USSR, and the USA), and the much-weakened Britain and Japan.

Colonization: Second Contact continues the saga, but you need not read the previous series to enjoy it. When the colonists arrive in 1962, they're unprepared for a half-conquered world. After several of their ships are destroyed by a nuclear missile of mysterious origin, they accuse the conquest forces of incompetence. Muslims in the conquered Middle East are staging an Intifada, the Chinese Communists continue guerrilla warfare against the invaders, and everyone's smuggling ginger, which is powerfully addictive among the Race and has unanticipated effects on the female colonists.

Turtledove's cast of characters includes sharply drawn alien soldiers and civilians as well as a mix of convincing historical and fictional humans from all over the world. He covers all the sixties issues: generational conflict, the drug culture, racial inequality, the threat of atomic apocalypse, and the frustration of soldiers in an unwinnable war. If you enjoy alternate history and old B movies, this book's for you. --Nona Vero

4.0 von 5 Sternen "Good, interesting, alternative drama" 15. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
The original 4-book series was awesome. Aliens invading Earth during WWII. Great concept! Now it's 20 years later with Earth (or Tosev 3) divided under Race and human rule. On top of that, the alien colonization fleet arrives. Not as much action as in the first book, but Turtledove does a great job showing how humans and aliens are trying to co-exist, and how each one is influencing the other. Ginger, which is like cocaine to the Race, plays a very big part in the story, especially with the newly arrived female aliens. Very good job showing the friction between aliens of the conquest fleet, who've seen the horrors of war and dealth with humans for 20 years, and the colonists, who have no understanding of humans and view their soldiers as failures. And kudos to Turtledove for not making the Race your typical, malevolent alien conquerers. In the Race-ruled countries, humans pretty much go about their business and the aliens are even educating them (though this is to make them better citizens of the Empire). Excellent character development. Plenty of old and new faces, including historical ones. Love watching men like V. Molotov, Earl Warren, General Le May and Adolf Eichman deal with an Earth full of reptilian invaders. Lots of suspense revolving around the destruction of some colonization ships and the U.S. space station. Looking forward to the next book.

2.0 von 5 Sternen More of the same, and the same, and the same 18. März 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
What happened Harry? The first part of this series was fun because we go to see how some of the most famous and well know figures in history would have responded, in the the author's view, to alien invasion. I thought, for that reason, it was fun but not well editted. This series is worse.
First, it takes over 300 pages of more then 600 before anything substantially new appears. During this period we meet some of the new charactors and most of the old ones. But over and over again we are told how remarkable the Big Uglies are and how conservatives the lizards are -and slow. Okay, we get the story. Now where is the story?
In Colonization, Turtledove had the opportunity to be a little unconvernational. I would have preferred an earthman invasion of their planet or the introduction of a new race competing with the humans of earth and the lizards. No. This books, instead, talks about the continued stalemale of the remaining powers 20 years later! Please, if people with 1940's tech could have fought them lizards to a tie, people in 1960 with 1980s or beyond tech - that wouldn't even be close. Okay, I know there would be some problems but since nothing new is added here, why not buy something new and different or simply re-read the first books in the series. You won't miss much and the writing will be better.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Round and round and round... 31. Mai 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Now, I've read all the four books of the original series (though I see no point in talking about _two_ series, this is as direct a continuation as they come) and so I knew I'd had to read this one too.
With a sigh I went to a book store and opened the book to its first page. Sure enough, it began with Atvar calling up the knight one more time. Every blasted book of this series has begun with this same old tired scene. Unfortunately this is typical of how the books in the series are connected. Every book has to introduce the billion characters Turtledove believes are necessary to carry on the story. Then, when all the old fellows have been reintroduced you're halfway through with the book and soon have to start reading the same reintroductions in the next book...
Even the Lizards, whose viewpoints have usually been the most interesting ones, are getting tired. All they talk about is how the Big Uglies are hopeless and how they would like to be back on Home and how the weather's miserable... Nobody likes hearing a child nag and to read through hundreds of pages of it is too much.
STOP REPEATING YOURSELF! MAKE SOMETHING HAPPEN!

3.0 von 5 Sternen read it again for the 'read time' 13. April 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Harry is again limited to the reptile alien structure and mannerisms - read - hiss and thumping their tails etc. Sounds like something partying humans do (in analogy) at a sports tailgate party. Character development style has gotten lethagic. All in all I grown bored and dulled by same redundancy - may finish the book as a summer read. New Turtledove readers should wet their appetite on "Guns Of The South" or first tetralogy set from "Upsetting the Balance" ("Striking The Balance" may disappoint in its climax). Might be good read as quasihistoric (Earth leaders wise) for freshmen in high school. Avid Turtledove fans will be quickly putting this down. Mr. Turtledove seriously must change style and concept of this theme (Maybe this is a comedy alternate war/earth history? And his macabre intentions! ). Read a library copy or your friend's copy and your dollars saved will be worth better. Paraphrase "To see it again for the first time." HoHum.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Sequel has interesting new plot twists 15. April 2001
Format:Taschenbuch
Turtledove manages to insert a couple of new twists into the sequel to the World War series. I read the first four books and in the end I was a little bored. Second Contact manages to revive the plot. It continues with a lot of the characters from WW (Yeager, Drucker, Molotov, Atvar etc.) and some new ones. Second Contact is set in the 1960s, ca. 20 yeards after the conquest fleet had landed. In the meantime the race's colonization fleet has also arrived and has started to colonize the planet. The most interesting part is Turtledove's description of how the earth has coped with the lizards (human teens, for instance, have developed a youth culture that apes the lizards) as well as how the arrival of lizard females changes everything. Almost as intriguing and well thought out as WW. If you liked the WW series, you gotta.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not a worthy sequel
While a moderately interesting alternate history book, DO NOT expect another "Worldwar." Taking place 20 years after Turtledove's original series, this book is rather... Lesen Sie weiter...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Better than Worldwar!
I really liked Worldwar a lot; but this is better. Now we begin to see the cultural, social, economic and technological implications of twenty years of Lizard semi-occupation are. Lesen Sie weiter...

While a good book, "COLONISATION: Second Contact" falls somewhat short of Turtledove's usual mark. Lesen Sie weiter...

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book
I am 80% finished with the book, and so far I believe it is the best of the series. I would recommend starting with the first in the series, however. Great characters.

In general I would recommend beginning with the first in this series, called _Worldwar: In The Balance_. Lesen Sie weiter...

4.0 von 5 Sternen not a masterpiece, but still good work
_Second Contact_ marks the continuation of (and a time shift from) the _Balance_ series of novels about a hypothetical alien invasion in 1943. Lesen Sie weiter...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great Book!
I enjoyed reading this book. It has continued the saga very successfully, something very few authors can do over a period of time and keep the reader interested.
