This is not a great novel but it is The Million Dollar Goal (The Million Dollar Series, likable If you suppose that Simak s seminal work is his novel City then you probably measure all of his other works against it For me his best work was The Goblin Reservation I read it many years ago and have re read it several times in the passing years Simak has a talent for his gentle characters and beautifulandscapes Simak clearly The Selected Poems loves the people and places of the midwest in which heived and this comes through in this novel as it does in all of his novels His A Shark Never Sleeps: Wheeling and Dealing with the NFL's Most Ruthless Agent later works are often disparaged compared to City but there is still a warmth and imagination here that is well worth indulging as aate work by a master If you are a Clifford D Simak fan then definitely read this book some great ideas and concepts and My Jihad: The True Story of An American Mujahid's Amazing Journey from Usama Bin Laden's Training Camps to Counterterrorism with the FBI and CIA lovely descriptions from time to time but very disjointed and ends up abruptlyike he was tired of writing it plus a tacked on romance yargh After a few days I am having to update my review This book gave me a hangover and I couldn t really start another book for a couple of days so I updating my rating to a 5 What can I say Simak can spin a yarn Yes I enjoyed it the story provided me with a book hangover definitely 475 but as we can t do that on Goodreads we will round up to 5 The story had a ittle of everything some speculative science fiction adventure intelligent Robots Aliens And Even aliens and even travel Wonderful story uick entertaining and fun I can t remember where I first heard of this I thought it was from a goodreads friend but no one seems to have reviewed it that I m friends with But this was just AMAZING I can t believe I ve spent so many decades reading science fiction and never come across this author beforeI LOVED this A woman historian robots who d ived 1000s of years ghosts and a post apocalyptic Earth that had been reborn The book reminded me most of Peter Beagle s work There was a gentleness to the characters and the setting that despite the context made it feel comforting It had some definite science fiction tropes but played them out in a wonderfully uniue and interesting way I am definitely going to read everything else I can find by this author my gosh this book was pretty terrible I went into it with an open mind having read nothing else
this author The whole is a disaster so very poorly put together that the badness at one point changes to pure Nine Ghosts laughs Sadly it is not intended to be funnyTo avoid giving anything interesting away to the unfortunate souls who stumble upon this in the near or distant future I will conclude by saying if you have a child ask them to write you a story called Cemetery World and they will pen a story far better than this mess Wow Il cut right to the chase Cemetery World is one of the most horrifically written sloppily conceived and all around terrible excuses of a novel I have ever had the misfortune to read After reading the stunning classic A Canticle for Leibowitz I couldn t distance myself from a book set centuries hell millennia into the future and at the.

Valist tale ends up as a puzzle concerning alien intervention perhaps a deus ex machina and time travel At times Cemetery World deus ex machina and time travel At times Cemetery World to be a cautionary morality tale about corporate greed and the futility of warfare indeed a peace message reverberates through the entire plot and thuggery It is no surprise that Simak introduces time travel and bucolic andscapes he s done that on several occasionsmost notably Way Station and Time and Time Again both published under different titles as well The warp and woof of his work weaves together both the sense of destiny and futility with which humankind struggles Cemetery World begins with an artist s dream pulls
