    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó Dark Eden PDF µ dark epub, eden book, Dark Eden ePUBOnce again I'm a confused about what constitutes an award winning Science Fiction novel This book?Really?The jacket copy and a couple of reviews that I noticed mention the interesting linguistic aspect of the novel The copy gives a lighthearted assurance that it's not as difficult as say Clockwork Orange No mention is given of that book by Joyce Now you might be one of those people who claim love for that book Personally I gave it ab

    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó Dark Eden PDF µ dark epub, eden book, Dark Eden ePUB5 of 5 bright bright stars at The BiblioSanctum tells me Dark Eden isn’t the kind of book you can take at face value; I have a feeling it could spawn a dozen papers on sociology and human psychology if you were inclined to analyze it Heck I’m sitting here writing a monster of a review for it myself The book takes place in the far flung future on an alien planet but simply labeling it science fiction misses out on a lot of its themes too In some ways it’s almost like a hypothetical so

    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó Dark Eden PDF µ dark epub, eden book, Dark Eden ePUBThe best way I can describe this book is as a cross between Lord of the Flies and Avatar a group of astronauts gets stranded on a deserted sunless planet after going through a wormhole and losing all touch with Earth The survivors intermarry producing after several generations The Family a gathering of clans around the site of the rocket crash living precariously off the land hunters and gatherers and waiting for a rescue ship from home to find them and take them back to civilization The story is told at the level and through the eyes of 'younghairs' teenagers rebelling against the strictures imposed by Family traditions and the authority of their elders The re creation of human society by a group of youngsters marrooned on an isolated island enclave and the revelations about the role of violence in es

    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó Dark Eden PDF µ dark epub, eden book, Dark Eden ePUBWho the hell decides where the line is drawn between literary and genre fiction? If one takes Chris Beckett’s ‘Dark Eden’ for instance this is a beautifully written magnificently constructed work of art and yet because of its subject matter it will casually be shunted off to the ‘science fiction’ ghetto Now I’m not one to raise a lip of sneering to any form of genre fiction I love genre fiction with all my black heart and soul And yet I know as you surely know that when it comes to the mythical cannon genre fiction is not worth anywhere near as much pseudo gold as the latest puffed up offering by

    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó Dark Eden PDF µ dark epub, eden book, Dark Eden ePUBI was surprised to learn upon finishing Dark Eden that not only was it an Arthur C Clarke award winner but also that it had beaten Nick Harkaway's Angelmaker to the prize Angelmaker has its flaws but it's a solid and compelling story most of the time which I can't say about Dark Eden It plods It's predictable in its plot and the underlying ideas and I could have guessed the story in its entirety just from knowing the premise Not only is it linear and predictable it's underdeveloped with chunks of the plot happening just '

    Kindle songuarachando.co.uk ó Dark Eden PDF µ dark epub, eden book, Dark Eden ePUBDARK EDEN falls into the classic scifi genre sociology camp It's a book that doesn't focus on hard core technical science but rather on sociological and biological uestionsIn the case of Eden this means developing an eco system that isn't reliant on a bright cheerful sun and which is occupied by strange life forms and a small population of humans all descended from two peopleWhat worked for me was the world building It was innovative and interesting I also thought the human population was suitably rank being dominated by the extremely old and populated by the genetic problems that arise when you have excessive inbreedingWhat didn't work for me were the characters I never ever cared for them I understand John and appreciated his efforts to keep people from starving but the way he handled the problem was counter productive and didn't really jive with how intelligent he was supposed to beTHUS At the 85% p
