Victor Tanasa a dat nota:

I'm conflicted. If this was a standalone, it would get 5*. As a sequel to Children of Time, it's closer to 4*. As I don't like to spoil the plot in reviews, I only want to say that the only thing "wrong" with this book is that it's not as surprising / innovating as the first one and shares a bit too much with it. Otherwise, it has a lot packed in those 550 pages and it really is a great read.

Notă biografică

Adrian Tchaikovsky was born in Woodhall Spa, Lincolnshire, and headed off to university in Reading to study psychology and zoology. For reasons unclear even to himself, he subsequently ended up in law. Adrian has since worked as a legal executive in both Reading and Leeds and now writes full-time. He also lives in Leeds, with his wife and son. Adrian is a keen live role-player and occasional amateur actor. He has also trained in stage-fighting and keeps no exotic or dangerous pets of any kind ¿ possibly excepting his son.

Adrian is the author of the critically acclaimed Shadows of the Apt series, the Echoes of the Fall series and other novels, novellas and short stories. The Tiger and the Wolf won the British Fantasy Award for Best Fantasy Novel ¿ and Children of Time won the Arthur C. Clarke Award for Best Science Fiction Novel. This was in the award¿s 30th anniversary year.


"Children of Time is a joy from start to finish. Entertaining, smart, surprising and unexpectedly human."—Patrick Ness

"Brilliant science fiction and far out world building."—James McAvoy on Children of Time

"A refreshingly new take on post-dystopia civilizations, with the smartest evolutionary worldbuilding you'll ever read."
Peter F Hamilton on Children of Time
"Like a Stephen Baxter novel with an epic sweep of history (see his Evolution, for example), added to a broad cast of a Peter Hamilton Space Opera and the narrative drive of, say, a David Brin or a Greg Bear old style SF novel, Children of Time soon got me hooked."—SFF World on Children of Time

"Children of Time has that essence of the classic science fiction novels, that sense of wonder and unfettered imagination but combined with this is the charm of a writer who really knows how to entertain, how to spin a good story. Essential science fiction, a book not to be missed."
SF Book on Children of Time
"The novel's clever interrogation of the usual narrative of planetary conquest, and its thoughtful depiction of two alien civilisations attempting to understand each other, is an exemplar of classic widescreen science fiction."—New Scientist on Children of Time
"This is superior stuff, tackling big themes - gods, messiahs, artificial intelligence, alienness - with brio."
Financial Times on Children of Time
"An entertaining and thought provoking novel of post humanity, survival and legacy."—SF Signal on Children of Time
"Tchaikovsky's prose is superb, and his world building was exceptional, brilliantly realized on the page, and both fascinating and original."—Civilian Reader on Children of Time
