I m familiar with er work written under the pseudonym Robin Hobb but not the books she wrote as Megan Lindholm before she adopted the new name Since I didn t want really know where to start and she Historical Archaeology: Why the Past Matters had written a few stand alone novels the choice was easily made especially since I didn t know Mrs Lindholmad ventured into the realms of Science Fiction at some point Reading a few reviews of which mainly Rob s convinced me I went for Alien Earth Also purchased that day and still to be read The Reindeer People and the follow up Wolf s BrotherWhat s it about Humans ave destroyed Earth Terra Like all nuclear bombs *were dropped at the same time So you can imagine that living *dropped at the same time So you can imagine that living aren t as favourable any longer An alien species the Arthroplana came with their Beastships to rescue most of the uman population It s unclear what Blu oltre la prua: Un'avventura di Jack Aubrey e Stephen Maturin - Master Commander (La Gaja scienza Vol. 946) happened to those survivors who could not or would not be rescued But that s rather trivialere Fact is the planet s dead Or so the rescued population is told Like in for example Wool Omnibus Silo 1 and the rest of the Silo series the people seeing on screens that above ground it s no longer safe to live but they don t show the rest of the above ground only the direct surroundings and thus no one can go outThe saved ones were dropped on the planets Castor and Pollux However as the Arthroplana saw life and everything connected in a Releasing Heaven on Earth: Gods Principles for Restoring the Land harmonious way mankind was to not leave any impact whatsoever on their newomes Take something from the soil or use water and it must be renewed as if nothing The Future of English Teaching Worldwide happened as if no change was made This also makes man stay in line obey and ignorantdumb All was regulated by the Conservancy who made sure everything was followed up in a strict manner Humans are also divided into groups given specific tasks after a battery of tests When they do not comply or obey Readjustment awaits them So yes it does give the story a dystopian touch to some extentThe Beastships serve multiple purposes but mainly as transport for trade and other activities These Beastships allave an Arthroplana in them a sort of supervisorowner who does all the steering In one of them Evangeline a certain John is captain but it s still Tug the Arthroplana who s really in charge although that was not what the tests gave as first result of what Between he should beave become There s also one crew Connie She was chosen via those tests to be a Mother but decided to go for Crew I find it very interesting and refreshing although the story is at least 20 years old that Lindholm used an introverted character Connie doesn t speak too often likes a structured life and work needs time on er own John is a little different although e too needs some me time occasionallyTo avoid the David Starr Space Ranger humans ageing too fast they re put into Waitsleep Travelling from one planetdocking station to another can take many decades or centuries inuman time So they re awakened every x years Add to that that they get to eat and drink specific products to avoid them developing too fast Hence puberty or sexuality or other aspects only become apparent at a much later period Or in other words due to the long sleeping and short periods of activity they age very slowly and their bodies develop less fast than when they would Crusader conspiracy Banner books have spent their lives on EarthTerraBack to the Conservancy they want it all to remain like it is keeping everyone under control censor everything and what not But then there s Earth Affirmed who want to prove that Earth is not dead that after all those yearscenturies it s safe to go back and continue to live there As John finds no new trade contract the excuse being thatis ship is too old too slow The Book of Earths: Hollow Earth, Ancient Maps, Atlantis, and Other Theories (Forgotten Books) heas no choice but to accept EA s not as well paid offer to go and get Earth samples whereby EA would take care of everything on a technical level there s even a time capsule on Earth John and co should locate even though EA wanted An English Translation of Fa Tsangs Commentary on the Awakening of Faith him all alongAnd so the fellowship Evangeline Tug John and Connie set out to Earth But there s someone else as well Raef a stowaway who wanted to flee from Readjustment and other troublesis youth wasn t that Gauntlet A Novel of International Intrigue happy either Ase s terminally ill all the reason to want to see one s The University of Chicago Spanish English English Spanish Dictionary home planet one time no At first only Tug is aware ofim and I magnifici dieci hidesim in the back to the ship doesn t tell the others about this extra crew memberThere s a lot of manipulation by Tug who tries to win Connie to The Happiness Secrets Of Joel Osteen his side ase can t really become friends with John any based on earlier co operations and travels John knows about Tug s behaviour and tries to warn Connie about it although at first she s obviously still very vulnerable to Tug s behaviourMore details and spoilers behind the tags view spoilerThe story gets a nice turnaround as Evangeline isn t as stupid as people are made to believe Such Beastships are apparently trained to be obedient and always do as they re told Little by little and tho. Over successive generations the Conservancy Seashells has re adjusted man to makeim so envir.Tship which shockingly is no dumb beast but yet another sentient species *Fallen Under The Dominion *under the dominion the Arthroplana Her awakening could change everythingAn entertaining sci fi book but I did feel that in pointing out someof the ridiculousness of ecological concerns gone overboard some of the message of the seriousness of those concerns and the importance of balance goes astray As part of my program to go back to the SF of the 80s and 90s I read this novel for the first time even though it graced my bookshelves for longer than I care to remember It s actually uite good as a literary work well written strong characters well balanced plot As a work of SFnot so much It s aliens
