BOOK ONE OF THE OMNIVERSE
EDITED BY VICTORIA CLEMENS

When an immense alien spacecraft is discovered buried in the desert outside Laguna, New Mexico, the world is plunged into chaos.

World leaders scramble to secure and study the Ship; the heads of the world's major religions meet in Rome to discuss the implications of the Ship's presence; terrorists and religious fundamentalists seek to use or destroy the Ship for their own ends, and ordinary men and women struggle to assimilate it all, as events unfold live and unfiltered across online news channels.

When a survey team is sent in to examine and explore the Ship, they discover that not only is it still operational, but it is conscious and has been waiting for tens of millions of years.

2.0 von 5 Sternen meh.... ok time waster.. lots of room for improvement 29. August 2011
Von RB - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
If this story is a highway, it is full of potholes that jar you out of the drivers seat.

First... The author needs a proof reader. There were glaring errors every few pages that continually take you out of the story.

Second... Political bias... I have no problem with politics being intrinsic to the story, but when the author makes random political jabs that really have nothing to do with the story... it is another pothole. It is hard to maintain suspension of disbelief when characters some time in the future are still blaming George W. Bush.

Third... The author needs an editor. Badly! There are lengthy subplots that are never concluded, or conclude incompletely, such as the Gabriel Ashe subplot and he bug test pilot subplot. The James and Allison subplot don't really add anything to the story either. Additionally, while I'm not opposed to gratuitous sex scenes, the one in this book seemed grossly out of place. I felt as if the author lifted the text from some soft core porn novella, and dropped into a sci-fi novel.

I can certainly find worse ways to blow a dollar, but can't recommend wasting one on this in its current form.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Poorly written, but intriguing! 26. September 2011
Von Carol G. Zarbock - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The Unearthing, the first book in the Omniverse series, is poorly written, yet it is intriguing, enough so for me to read the sequel, Through Darkness and Stars. It is full of awkward sentences and typographical and editing errors. Most disconcerting is the character structure. I thought the book was about Dr. Mark Echohawk, yet a significant way into the book, for reasons I won't mention for fear of spoiling, that turned out not to be the case. Other characters received a lot of attention as well, only to be discarded in the story line (I keep wondering if they're going to come back in the next book, though that would take substantial creativity!).

Some scenes, such as a body viewing scene, received WAY TOO MUCH attention, while more interesting opportunities were frequently overlooked, resulting in my great disappointment. Overall, I had the impression that the book was the work of an untrained writer who sat down and just wrote the story from beginning to end, without planning or going back for a rework. It also struck me that there was no editorial guidance, either. It sure seems like a self-publishing effort, which is too bad, because professional input could have really made this book, in my opinion. I get it, though, and am generally in favor of self-publishing. However, I would urge all self-publishers to try and raise the quality of their projects to the highest possible levels to keep readers interested.

That said, The Unearthing is built around a very interesting premise, and I enjoyed the hints of philosophical and religious thought it tried to provoke. Although it was unsuccessful in exploring these areas, in my opinion, it did get me to thinking. The seeming randomness of so many things in this book make me wonder what's coming next in the sequel, Through Darkness and Star. So I'll plunk down $.99 to find out, although I suspect it may be predictable, based on the synopsis. My hope is it will be better than The Unearthing, and I do see it's getting higher ratings.

Still, serious flaws and all, I cannot lay down Mr. Karmazenuk's books. I hope he can grow technically as a writer, because he has some good and intriguing ideas!

1.0 von 5 Sternen Unsatisfactory On Every Level 22. August 2011
Von Harold - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Let me begin with a caveat, I could only read the first half of the book. It is definitely not a book you can't put down and I had to force myself to read as much as I did. There are a number of absurdities in this book to list a few: a largely uninhabited region of the American Southwest was hit by a nuclear weapon during a world war but Los Angeles wasn't; the US and Britian set up the World Council but don't dominate it; evidently India, China and Russia don't exist as no mention is made of them; a world wide terroristic cult with at least tens of thousands of members comprised of drug addicts believe that their leader is the son of Christ commit thousands of coordinated terrorist strikes across the world all while remaining un-infiltrated by intelligence agents despite operating semi-openly; the Pope calls a council and invites all major and many minor religions to participate all while the Catholic Church hasn't come to any conclusions as to the theological implications for the discovery of an alien ship as to its own teachings; intelligent people are debating whether the ship interfered with evolution and is responsible for life as we know it despite the fact that life existed prior to the ship landing and the ship was buried by the impact of the KT asteroid and remained buried for 65 million years; and the author apparently believes that Popes can do as they please despite what previous Popes have decreed (ie Catholic priestesses are implied in the book). There are certainly more absurdities but these are the ones that come to me without introspection. As far as the writing style the plot moves in fits and bits. Generally a scene will advance no further than a couple or three pages before it cuts to another scene with different characters and location. Just let me say I really enjoy science fiction but reading this was not the least bit enjoyable. The author apparently has no idea how the military, politics or religion works and yet has set out to expound on all three. There isn't even much in the way of science. I only wish I could give it zero stars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating read! 16. März 2011
Von sonik J - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The Unearthing grabs sci-fi readers by the shirt and shakes them awake with possibilities. What would the world's political and religious climate be like if we suddenly discovered that we truly aren't alone in the universe? Karmazenuk's colorful description of how it might all unfold will take you from cover to cover at lightspeed. Even if you're not an avid sci-fi reader, this book explores the sociology of alien discovery in such a way, you won't be able to put it down.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Needs focus and an editor 12. September 2011
Von Gerald Pauly - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The Good:

The book has a great concept that I found very fascinating. The vision of the world was wonderful and I liked how a lot of the book dealt with the reactions of the people.

The Bad:

Grammar and spelling. The author needs an editor. The constant use of EXO for executive officer hurt because in the military it is abbreviated XO. Which told me that the author had done little research on the military or had little knowledge.

Also - the concept of the "Committee" was a little out there and didn't play any major part in the plot. Why create this concept when it wasn't needed.

The book could have been tighter. Get rid of the South American war. Right - does anyone remember it? Why did the ship allow certain people in who didn't pass the test? I know, probably handled in the next book.

I would have asked the ship - why didn't anyone come looking for you? Not a single crew member survived?

I'll read the next book to see where it goes but the story dragged to much to really excite me.
