    As this monster book contains two often recommended novels by Vernor Vinge, I m going to review them separately as they are really quite different I had half written a longer review but due to a slip of the back button on my browser I lost it and had to start again A Fire Upon the Deep 4 5 stars I have tried to read this novel some time ago but found it way too hard to get into, not least because of a scene near the beginning a family being killed in front of...

    I m giving this 3 1 2 stars is there a way to give half stars lol This is a good book but I didn t walk away feeling amazed or really reveling over everything that happens like I would a truly amazing book I can t write a summary without major spoilers so suffice it to say that essentially humans are space traders, the Qeng Ho, or those that stick to a planet mostly One of the fleets of Qeng Ho heads for a system that hasn t been explored and promises much fortune and contact with the first I m giving this 3 1 2 stars is there a way to give half stars lol This is a good book but I didn t walk away feeling amazed or really reveling over everything that happens like I would a truly amazing book I can t write a summary without major spoilers so suffice it to say that essentially humans are space traders, the Qeng Ho, or those that stick to a planet mostly One of the fleets of Qeng Ho heads for a system that hasn t been explored and promises much fortune and contact with the first living alien species In this universe the humans have never found a surviving and contemporary alien civilization The major issue is that another group of humans have moved in on the prize along with the Qeng Ho, the Emergents The Emergents made the Borg from Star Trek TNG look honest and mild IMO As far as enemies go they are five star enemies I agree with other reviewers that the aliens spiders in the story are extremely anthropomorphic The...

    I love me a good space opera and this is one both grand and original This is known as the Zones of Thought series because of the structure of Vinge s imagined galaxy In it, there are various zones that allow for different levels of tech and intelligence In the Mindless Depths of the Galactic core no intelligent life is possible The zone of Great Slowness that contains the now dead Earth contains intelligent life, yes, but you must go father out into the Beyond for faster than light tr I love me a good space opera and this is one both grand and original This is known as the Zones of Thought series because of the structure of Vinge s imagined galaxy In it, there are various zones that allow for different levels of tech and intelligence In the Mindless Depths of the Galactic core no intelligent life is possible The zone of Great Slowness that contains the now dead Earth contains intelligent life, yes, but you must go father out into the Beyond for faster than light travel and artificial intelligence to be possible And beyond that, in the Transcend there are God like Powers at best indifferent to ordinary sapient, and in some cases malignant.Against this backdrop humans have long made it to the Beyond, and in this series we also encounter some of the most memorable, original and endearing aliens I ve read in science fiction In A Fire Upon a Deep there are the dog like Tines who have packs that form one individual mind, and the Riders so...

    Two spectacular books I m not sure how I ve only just discovered Vernor Vinge but he is now on my favourites list A must read for any science fiction fan who enjoys sweeping space operas and convincing aliens the Tines and the Spiders have have to be two of the best written aliens I have come across.I can see how people may not like how humanised the Spiders are, but for me it meant that view spoiler when we did get real glimpses of their true form, it had a much greater impact As an ara Two spectacular books I m not sure how I ve only just discovered Vernor Vinge but he is now on my favourites list A must read for any science fiction fan who enjoys sweeping space operas...

    I was unimpressed with this book After all the great books that have been nominated for the Hugo and Nebula that described truly alien civilizations it is depressing to read this Hugo winner which has a whole variety of alien cultures that talk think and act just like human...

    Finally finished Only took 5 months Very good read I think the second book was a bit too long but maybe that s just because I was so busy and unable to read it quickly Lots of interesting scifi ideas about alien races and FTL travel and coldsleep and others, all amongst rousing stories.

  8. says:

    I began reading this book, but realized that I no longer have the interest for science fiction that I used to have It is not a judgment of the book, which seems excellent and to be recommended for those who still enjoy the genre.

  9. says:

    Read Deepness seperately then thought I might as well buy both together a little disappointed with Fire, just seemed a little too superficial compared to Deepness without the darkness that makes sci fi so good

    how many ways can you tell a story Apparentlythen 4, 5 This book tells a longwinded story from several points of view I think it would have been better with less talk andaction But that s usually my opinion about most things.
