Kurzbeschreibung

I’ve never seen the night, nor seen a star; I’ve seen neither spring, nor fall, nor winter. I was born at the end of the Reining Age, just as the Earth’s rotation was coming to a final halt.

The Sun is about to unleash a helium flash, threatening to swallow all terrestrial planets in the solar system. On Earth, the Unity Government has erected Earth Engines. With them it plans to propel our planet out of the solar system, setting it on a journey into outer space in search of a new sun. The Earth begins its centuries-long, wandering travels through outer space.

Just as we began our journey, my grandfather passed away, his burnt body ravaged by infection. In his final moments, he repeated over and over, “Oh, Earth, my wandering Earth...”

China Galaxy Science Fiction Award of Year 2000.

----------------------------

Liu Cixin's writing will remind SF fans of the genre's golden age, with its positive focus on scientific development, combined with a consistently constructive vision of China's future role as a global superpower. It's characteristic of an SF genre which has been embraced by Chinese culture because it is seen as representing the values of technological innovation and creativity so highly prized in a country developing more quickly than any other in the world today.
– Damien Walter, The Guardian

A science fiction tale with a Chinese touch. The Wandering Earth is filled with imaginative tech and a moving world, literally.
– Indiebookoftheday.com

Liu Cixin has put his exuberant energy to good use, erecting a gallery that must be measured on a scale of light-years. Inside this gallery of his, he has stored away marvels beyond imagination produced by the science and technology of cosmic civilizations. The moment you step into Liu Cixin's world, the rush of his enthusiasm buffets you like a particle storm – a storm of enthusiasm for science and for technology; And it is this enthusiasm that bears the heart of his world's magnificent galaxy. We can find it reflected not only in the grand vistas he creates, but also in the fateful decisions of his characters. The stark contrast of his grand worlds against the choices of these lonely and feeble beings can be truly shocking!
– Yao Haijun, editor in chief of “Science Fiction World”

First and foremost, as a reader, I very much enjoy and find great satisfaction in Liu Cixin's stories. The stories he tells are incredibly lucid, their language is conversant, their rhythm is tightly woven and their plots exceedingly compelling; Their imagery is unique, they have a boundless quality about them and they are brimming with powerful language; In these ways he echoes the great Taoist philosopher Chuang-tzu. What is more, I truly adore technology and industrial culture and consider them to be very exquisite, serious and atmospheric; almost holy. Liu Cixin's stories reflect this sentiment of mine. Therefore, I at times think that he echoes Newton. Finally, there is the military side of things. One does not have to look far to see his innate passion for all things to do with weaponry. In Liu Cixin we can see a stubbornness, a heroic ideal of centuries past.
– Han Song, deputy editor of “Oriental Outlook”

5.0 von 5 Sternen Tolles Cover, tolle (traurige) Geschichte 21. November 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ein weiteres Meisterstück aus der Feder von Liu Cixin.
Gesellschaftskritische SciFi wie ich sie vorher noch nicht gelesen habe.
Wenn die Sonne droht zu explodieren und die Planeten mitzureißen ... dann muss man zumindest den eigenen Planeten in Sicherheit bringen - und zu einer anderen Sonne wandern lassen.

Trotz aller Sachlichkeit und Nebenbei-Verluste eine sehr traurige Geschichte.
Toll!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Moving the Earth, one story at a time 21. März 2012
Von Angelika - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I for the most part don't read much science fiction, but this story caught my eye and I am very happy that it did. What I enjoyed most about the story was the world which the author creates, and moves! The sheer scale of the technology and imagination really made it a fun read for me.
The language is vivid and flows nicely. It does a great job at capturing the many world-shaking events that are the heart of this story.

While the story is universal enough parts of it do seem to have a unique Chinese colouring to them, especially in the characters interactions with the government and regulations of the world.
My only point of concern was the characters, for my taste there was just a bit too little space devoted to their development and interactions.
Overall I really enjoyed this story and heartily recommend it!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another excellent novella by Liu Cixin 8. Mai 2012
Von Elias Fernandez-Combarro Alvarez - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
(Review originally published on my blog Sense of Wonder)

Liu Cixin is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. After reading "Taking Care of God" and Mountain I have now read The Wandering Earth and, again, I am completely amazed. Cixin's imagination is astonishing. The images in his works are absolutely striking. His ability to provoke powerful emotions in the reader, without equal.

In The Wandering Earth, our planet is in extreme danger. The Sun has become unstable and it's been predicted that, in a few years, a helium flash will completely burn all the planets of the solar system. Under the Unity Government, all the nations of Earth have been working for centuries with an only goal: transforming the planet into a giant spaceship and setting it on a thousands-years-long journey in search of a new sun.

At the beginning of this novella, we witness the first phase of this transformation. The Earth Engines, gigantic devices higher than the Everest, have stopped the planet and will soon set it in motion on its interstellar voyage. Throughout The Wandering Earth we experiment these momentous events as seen by a child who has known nothing else:

I've never seen the night, nor seen a star; I've seen neither spring, nor fall, nor winter. I was born at the end of the Reining Age, just as the Earth's rotation was coming to a final halt.

In four chapters and only 50 pages, Liu Cixin manages to tell a wonderful story of struggle and endurance. We see wonders and destruction, marvels and despair. Because these are times of hardness and dire necessity, but also of hope.

In the Pre-Solar Age nobility meant money, power or talent, but now one must only hold to hope. Hope is the gold and the jewels of this age.

I can't recommend The Wandering Earth highly enough. This is science fiction at its best. A tale full of sense of wonder, but also of deep human emotions: melancholy, grief and utter faith in the capability of humanity to overcome even the biggest obstacles.

I confess that, after finishing reading this novella, I had to restrain myself from beginning another Liu Cixin's story. Because there is just one flaw in The Wandering Earth: it is far too short! But I have only three stories by Liu Cixin left (Devourer, The Micro-Age and Sun of China) and I dread the moment when I run out of them. Here's hoping that more of his work gets translated into English. And soon, please!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book 29. März 2012
Von Victoria - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
i was quite impressed by this book. The storyline is intriguing to say the least-main character grows up in the future where our Sun is about to enter a red giant phase and the prospect of human race surviving looks grim. The goverments comes up with a solution to save the Earth by moving it away to a nearest star system. The whole, fairly short novel, speaks from a young boy point of view who grows up in subterranian Earth to witness horrible earthquakes, tidal waves and rogue asteroids that eventually make an Earth a barren landscape. Writer's descriptions of people are lacking while he does absolutely superb job of describing future technology and landscapes. All in all, I read this book in one afternoon, it was that good. If you like Sci-fi, you need to read this.

5.0 von 5 Sternen My Old Dream Fullfilled 19. Februar 2013
Von Arguzus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I can't tell you how much I loved it back to 2008. I read it and read it and my eyes wept every time. It's the ending that I love most:

In time, I will be gone,
So far our voyage wandering,
But call me at the dawn
When the East glows in light rising.
我知道已被忘却
流浪的航程太长太长
但那一时刻要叫我一声啊
当东方再次出现霞光

In the mind of mine at that time, The Wandering Earth was better than all other science fictions I've read. And I really wanted other people to love it as well. "For the sake of all English speaking readers", I tried to translate this great story into English. I failed, as many other Chinese who tried the same.
Years pass and now I'm 17, almost a grown-up and has given up reading Sci-Fi long since. I was wondering on a SNS one day and saw people talking about the English versions of Liu's short stories. I searched for it immediately, and found out that The Wandering Earth had been published for months. My feeling was a mixture of both exciting and confusing, confused by the fact that I felt nothing before I knew it. It didn't take too long for me to read through the whole story again, as I knew everything in it already. Then I sat down, relaxed, delighted by the fulfillment of an old dream.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Quick, intense read! 26. Februar 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The Wandering Earth was a great, quick read. The plot of the story centers around the fact that the sun is going to explode. This is a great plot because it is quite possible for the sun to explode and Earth to thusly be effected. What is most interesting about this story is the way Earth decides to handle this catastrophic event. It throws all types of scientific answers without being too much, and is so much different than the average "escape to another planet" or "board a spaceship."

This more than exceeded my expectations. I was unable to put it down until I got to the end. I love it when a story causes me to think and this story did just that.

I would recommend this book to everyone 12 and over.
