Synopsis

Iris Angharads, a determined, independent woman, sets herself one massive goal: to make the poison-filled atmosphere of Venus hospitable to humans. She works day and night to realize her dream, with only one person sharing her passion, Liang Chen. It seems impossible to make Venus, with its intolerable air and waterless environment, into a paradise, but Iris succeeds. And in doing so, she also creates a powerful dynasty, beginning with her first born, Benzi Liangharad.

Von Kim Boykin am 20. März 2007
Format: Taschenbuch
I've settled Mars many times in my science fiction reading; it was a new adventure to settle Venus. "Venus of Dreams" is the Venusian analogue of Kim Stanley Robinson's "Red Mars" (which I also recommend): a realistic and entertaining story of what it might be like to make a new planet habitable for humans, including the science, the politics, and the individual human drama.

Iris Angharads is from the Plains Nomarchy in what used to be the United States. As a child, she dreams of working on the Venus Project instead of taking over the communal farm run by her mother. She and her significant others struggle with issues of ambition, family commitments, and what is worth sacrificing in order to attain your dream.

Societally Complex 12. März 2009
Von RenaissanceMan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I read this book as a young adult male expecting typical light airy science fiction. I stood no chance against Dr. Pamela Sargent - a PHD and renowned feminist -- she changed my young man's s*xually centered world upside down and transformed the way I see women....and it wouldn't be until decades later when I had a better grasp of sociology that I would begin to understand what she was trying to tell me.

I must say that the work is one that has stayed with me throughout my life - I've never ever reread the book but just from this one reading as a young man - I can say that it openned my eyes to the complex world of gender, society, decisions between love, family, duty - etc decisions that are sometimes especially more challenging for women. Me being a man, and at the time a young man, made reading this book especially interesting, perplexing, and entirely unexpected (I was expecting light love story + sci fi setting) -- not this!

Conceptually, its the story of humanity first colonizing Venus but that's not what this story is about...the story is about sacrifices and decisions that people (and sometimes especially women) make in life and how different genders make and react to those decisions and how in many ways those decisions are harder for women and how they've developed different mechanisms to cope with those decisions in this future society.

This is not light science fiction, this is a rigorous social studies work set in a science fiction setting. The author should be credited tremendously for writing something as detailed and as complicated as this but be forewarned, if you're looking for light airy science fiction, this is not the ticket. This is a social studies/gender studies masterpiece.

I have to add that this work changed my perceptions of women to a much more balanced and grown up perspective (although the society that Pamela Sargent writes about doesn't exist). In the one sense, it made me come to appreciate genders and that women should get respect as equals but at the same time it taught me that just because a face happens to be pretty, that doesn't mean she won't drive a blade of steel through your heart with impunity...it made me much more cautious and since then when I see a woman, I say - you get nothing for free because of how pretty you are but you get every bit as much as I'd give anyone else regardless of gender/race/creed/ethnicity etc and most certainly it taught me to protect my heart. The book taught me balance between all "humans."

Do read it, especially if you're a man - this book is a must.

As to whether this story is as broad as Star Trek, Star Wars etc - certainly the concept is but Venus of Dreams delves squarely into gender and s*x issues and society ... where Star Trek and Star Wars deal mostly with human rights issues on much lighter settings....Venus of Dreams is an entirely different ball of wax. Very detailed, almost like the Author lived through it all. Overall Wonderful.

In many ways Pamela Sargent writes a similar story to Robinson's Mars only this one is set in Venus....Sargent's story is more complex from a gender standpoint where Robinson's is more about the politics and deceitfulness of humans in general. This is also interesting because where Robinson's work on Mars is much better known than Sargent's ...Robinson is a Man, Sargent a Woman --- are we talking deeply ingrained social biases here? Unfair to Sargent who wrote a wonderful work.

She's one of those ladies that I'd love to sit down with and pick her brain over a cup of coffee.

Complex and Unforgettable 28. Mai 2004
Von "ragingenjoyment" - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I first read this book 5 years ago and in that time have probably re-read it about 9 times.
This and the other books in the trilogy are very very well-written and I highly recommend them all to anyone who likes their fiction to be well-planned and well-rounded. Although people may not like me for it, I'm going to have to compare this trilogy to Star Trek in that the technology is very outlandish and barely even theoretically possible, but it does fit together rather well and makes a good story. And that's really all that matters. I will say for the politics and religion in the books, though, they're very realistic and it's very easy to find parallels in modern day society.
All in all, this book and the other two are very very good and I would highly recommend them to anyone who can appreciate a book filled with science, politics, religion and personal drama all rolled into one unforgettable series.

Iris on Venus Forever 30. April 2007
Von Michel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A wonderful story that will take you far away on a trip you'll never forget. The story spans the life of Iris Angharads, a Venus pioneer. We meet Iris when she's a girl and see her grow into an adult quartered into her career, her woman's love, her mother's love, and her family duties. PS is able to make us not only feel for Iris but also even understand her hardest decisions. The contrast between where Iris comes from and where she goes hinging on the Cytherian Institute is remarkably thought, conceived, and described. That story of a free woman guided by her creed and fighting for her desire will never leave you.

Great Reading - You'll Really Enjoy! 27. März 2000
Von Aubrey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Venus of Dreams is the fascinating story of a young girl named Iris who dreams of transforming the planet Venus into a habitable paradise. Eventually Iris marries and leaves her family on Earth to live on one of the Habitats orbiting Venus. Iris is now working on the project to transform Venus. There are too many plots and substory lines to go into them all, but any reader will have a hard time putting the book down.
