Produktinformation

Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

In the 22nd century, humanity discovers life on an extrasolar planet, Isis: life that is lush, beautiful--and deadly. The least molecule of Isian biology kills humans painfully and horribly. Zoe Fisher has been born and bred--cloned and genetically engineered--to explore Isis. But Isis has secrets undiscovered by humanity, and Zoe herself contains secrets known only to the political powers that created her. And an act of biomedical sabotage has changed Zoe in unknown ways.

Robert Charles Wilson is the author of Science Fiction Chronicle's Best SF Novel of 1998, bestselling Darwinia, also the Aurora Award winner and Nebula and Hugo Award finalist. With Bios, Wilson has created a hard-SF novel rich in great ideas, strong writing, and the classic sense of wonder, a work that stays true to the implications of its frightful biology. --Cynthia Ward

Let me just begin by saying I'm a terrible reviewer. I will never achieve the necessary objectivty to analyze novels I care for. With that said, I'm not sure what the first reviewer is going on about. The characters are touchingly drawn, especially Zoe and Tam. Granted, the dialogue might be described as minimalist, but with no sacrifice in style. In my opinion, his review only underscores that the better part of aesthetics is mostly personal taste.
Permit me to gush,I think this novel is brilliant. With Wilson it all comes down to endings. In a few delicate strokes, and on a few pages, he has the artist's ability to paint something geniunely beautiful and moving. What a gorgeous universe he delivers! A wonderful rendering of speculative metaphysics in fiction, to boot. I so enjoyed the motif of life 'descending'(falling?) to earth and becoming corrupted. The earth and humans cut off from LIFE are in a cosmic prison house, so very gnostic and reminiscent of Lurianic Kabbalah.
I just wanted to say how grateful I am to have met Robert Charles Wilson at a Borders book signing in Farmington Michigan. It ranks as one of the top ten great conversations of my life.
(And if you need anyone to read works in progress mail away!)
Sincere thanks to RCW for his work. My life is better for having encountered your stories.

Unlike Wilson's last book, Darwinia, this one is a clear cut winner. It covers an interesting twist on scifi: what if there weren't lots of "M Class" planets out there where humans could casually show up and start colonizing? What if other planets had organisms completely toxic to humanity?
Like Darwinia, around the middle of the book you start to realize there's a much larger conspiracy going on, but unlike Darwinia, the two halves flow together easily.
There was a lot of emotional intensity in this book, and it had a very satisfying ending. I thouroughly enjoyed it.

As Ursual le Guin remarked in her inroduction to "Left Hand of Darkness", "anything carried to its logical extreme is despressing, even cancerogenic". Bios makes this very mistake on numerous occasions. First of all, it lacks any and all human element. I could not accept any of the characters as LIVING PEOPLE, but more as just a few more entities that would eventually succumb to the "bleedout and deliquescence" that is so gratuitously plentiful in Bios. Dialogue is indeed scant, and, unlike Ender's Game (yet another nearly inhuman book), author does little in the way of interjecting words spoken out-loud with words not spoken at all. Time shifts are rarely paid atention to, and I had trouble keeping track of who was the viewpoint character. Naturally, with the characters gone from view one begins to pay more attention to the setting. It took me only a few pages to discover the amazing floweriness of scientific terminology. The author has a seemingly insatiable desire to explain the technical details of every single device, as if to stop the reader from taking notice of the book's glaring deficiencies. Literally every word is preceeded with an explanatory adjective of the most "hard SF" sort, which in itself is, first of all, rather annoying, and, second of all, leads the reader to believe that the author though of the book as lacking in credibility. Aside from these I thought that the world of Isis, the most important force in the entire book, is far too underdeveloped. When I read about wondrous new worlds, I want to know something about them!
Despite its flaws Bios manages to collect a rather unhealthy attention. I suppose one who likes what is dubbed "hard science fiction" may also like this forever cold iceberg.

One of the rising masters of human oriented science fiction (Gypsies, A Bridge of Years) has now gone into hard science fiction. Although not quite up to the efforts of Greg Bear and Gregory Benford, Robert Charles Wilson is close.
This first foray into hard, space oriented themes is well plotted and realised. It tastes like bittersweet chocolate. The themes are fairly straightforward and humanely presented.
The only quibble with the book is that it is a bit choppy and underdeveloped. The underlying essence of the book has been done before by the two previous authors, however, Robert Charles Wilson has given it an acrid uniqueness. Overall, an excellent book meriting a four star rating. I've given it five to counter-balance the unmerited one star review.
