One of the greatest science fiction epics ever written Well no Not even close Some of it crosses over into into the very silly Buzz bomb for example what is this a Dead Kennedys album Actually that might be weirdly appropriate considering the musical communication between the centaurs This book contains a lot of good ideas including the basic premise of a living ringworld and the splintering personalities based on the distributed brain reuired for such a large organism It seems that Varley wants especially towards the end for us to feel sympathy for those rebelling against Gaea but I found myself disliking the humans for the destructive behavior that is so much in evidence in our current day The wanton destruction of species occurring right now paralleling what appears to be the forthcoming trajectory planned for the next book ie death of Gaea itself Then again there is a lot of moral complexity in the book revealed through the various points of view so probably Varley did that deliberately and is uite aware that his heroes are not necessarily all that heroic depending on the point of viewThe obsession with the sexual formations of the centaurs became a bit exhausting Varley even created a full diagram in the back of the book showing all 29 possible configurations called ensembles by which the Titanides can reproduce The amount of work he most have put into creating this diagram along with the grouping and names all based on musical modes could be seen as excessively prurient or as an impressive level of world building expertise and perhaps both are true My hornier younger self might have found it all very titillating but my older cynical self finds it mostly uaint tiring and just a bit embarrassingOne of my other gripes is the unnecessary mentions of telepathy and ESP 3 total if I remember correctly neither of which contributed to any substance to either the story or the world building and since this book already blurs the science fiction heavily into mythic fantasy I felt those elements would have been best left out but that reflects a personal bias on part I find telepathy and ESP to be annoying cheats when it comes to science fiction and even with my deep favorites such as Star Trek I have never liked things such as Vulcan mind melds But this is a minor uibbleAt its core this is an epic uest fantasy and Varley is not trying to hide that fact since Gaea explicitly creates things to be uested after and reuires heroic deeds to gain her favor By that measure this book delivers fairly well Not with Tolkien level skill but still decent enough that I enjoyed the ride well enough There are character deaths and there is character growth and depth There are serious conflicts and resolutions but not with idealistic happiness Things are complicatedIf goodreads allowed half star ratings and wouldn t it be nice if it did this would be a 35 for me but following my rounding up rule plus the fact it clearly gave me a lot to think about it gets a reluctant 4 But to uote Public Enemy Don t believe the hype especially that on the front cover which says most celebrated adventure since Dune This one is somewhere between Heinlein and Piers Anthony

FREE READ Wizard by John Varley John Varley ´ 0 SUMMARY READ ☆ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ´ John Varley King trilogy that will live forever Human explorers have entered the sprawling mind of Gaea Now they must fight h. I m really enjoying this trilogy You could put it in the humans explore vast space habitat category in company with things like Rendezvous with Rama and Ringworld but I think that misses the appeal of Varley s Gaea books Varley brings really weird shit to the table as all SF should but hard SF sometimes underdelivers on In addition to blowing you away with exterior vistas he s digging his hooks into your subconscious and unearthing some disturbing stuff On top of that he s funny This series almost reminds me of Terry Pratchett s early SF like the not just a Ringworld spoof Strata though Varley s work is much darkerVolume 1 Titan covered the initial exploration and established the setup Wizard returns after a number of decades where things appear relatively stable Gaea is recognized by the UN and permits a certain number of human tourists and even immigrants but plays with them in the same capricious way It s very different in feel from the first volume almost a little too peaceful and threatening until you realize you re just being softened up before everything goes to hell It doesn t outstay its welcome and sets the stage for a cataclysmic third volume Demon which I can t wait to readThe main attraction of Wizard is Varley s amazing ingenuity in creating new alien species The setup allows for some extremely improbable scenarios much like Strata again and he exploits this to the hilt blimps and submarines buzz bombs sand wraiths and the crown jewel the centaur like Titanides with their musical language and multiple sexual organs You ll learn a lot about the latter especially because there is a lot of centaur sex in this book If you think you might be put off by lots of centaur sex this is probably not the book for you Let s just say where volume 1 comes with an accompanying map volume 2 comes with a cheat sheet listing the 29 possible Titanide sexual ensembles He s eually imaginative with human societies of the near to medium futureAnd the writing is terrific Hard boiled for the most part but with the occasional gem thrown in Early on our first glimpse of a Titanide She thundered down the seawall road arms held out behind her like the silver lady on a Rolls Royce A lovely image and a useful one compact and poetic
