They all share a rich historical feel stories from a time long past How could a space story mesh with all that? I don't think I was far into the first chapter before all of that fell away On

Generations ago an altruistic alien race the Arthroplana rescuedhumanity from the ecological disaster of earth and resettled them ina new system with dire warnings on the necessity of fitting in to thelocal ecology Since then this desire to leave no mark has becomean obsession possibly to the extreme detriment of the human raceThe result of generation of selective breeding has been a race of tinypeople who do not reach puberty until late middle age who are indanger of soon not being able to naturally reproduce at allBut there is a radical element of humans that believe it has all beena big lie that Earth is really fine and that the powers that bedon t want people to know about it They blackmail a man John tosign on to one of the alien Beastships to survey earth and arrange to bring back data that hasn t been filteredBut on the way an ancient stowaway makes contact with the Beastship which shockingly is no dumb beast but yet another sentient species fallen under the dominion of 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

This book is truly mind blowing Being very familiar with Hobb s fantasy I never expected her to master such a drastic change of genre and writing style I m happy I was wrong Before getting into the core of the novel let me tell you how big of a pleasure it was to me to read a whole story that fits into a single book from beginning to end something so rare it oughts to be noticedThis novel is a very different type of space opera like you ve never met before Far from big space wars this journey in the galactic emptiness is deeply personal Every character discovers their true self true personality and wishes in a very soft way This softness is what characterizes the whole story you are not thrown away in this completely uniue sci fi universe you are gently led into it as you uncover and understand its mechanisms page by page But the best thing is how deeply relevant it is today despite being written almost 30 years ago Overpopulation climate change technology determinism all resonate with today s world our world as the story opens a big debate about human nature This novel is an unexpected sci fi gem that should reconcile even the most down to earth reader with sci fi Let s just hope Robin Hobb decides to write of it

characters Alien earth

Free download ¾ Alien earth 100 Over successive generations the Conservancy has re adjusted man to make him so envir. I m familiar with her 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 had written a few stand alone novels the choice was easily made especially since I didn t know Mrs Lindholm had 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 have destroyed Earth Terra Like all nuclear bombs were dropped at the same time So you can imagine that living conditions aren t as favourable any longer An alien species the Arthroplana came with their Beastships to rescue most of the human population It s unclear what happened to those survivors who could not or would not be rescued But that s rather trivial here 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 harmonious way mankind was to not leave any impact whatsoever on their new homes Take something from the soil or use water and it must be renewed as if nothing 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 all have 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 he should be have 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 her own John is a little different although he too needs some me time occasionallyTo avoid the humans ageing too fast they re put into Waitsleep Travelling from one planetdocking station to another can take many decades or centuries in human 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 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 that his ship is too old too slow he has 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 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 troubles his youth wasn t that happy either As he s terminally ill all the reason to want to see one s home planet one time no At first only Tug is aware of him and hides him 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 his side as he 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 though her mental conversations with Raef whom she discovered one way or another because that s an area where Tug has less or no control the womb chambers Evangeline manages to free herself from the shackles and slave driving tactics by Tug who manipulated her and his crew John and Connie John and Connie have to land on Earth but not according to plan Connie remains sceptic at first then is convinced by John to venture into the world towards the sea and experience for herself that Earth has indeed become a or less normal planet again despite loss of certain fauna and flora and adaptations of remaining species So much even that Connie doesn t want to leave any While on Castor or Pollux people have lost the touch with nature with animals Hence Connie being very surprised to see and feel Earth s vegetation and the few animals she encounters And the sand And the water of the sea Also as you might suspect she and John find each other after having opened up to each other there s no Conservancy or anyone else to keep them in line probably because their puberty and sexuality suddenly got a big boost due to Earth s living conditionsAs Raef finds out about John s and Connie s descent towards Earth he convinces Evangeline to save them fearing they won t have enough supplies and will succumb to the toxic conditions on Earth But Raef s situation gets worse once he s subjected to Earth s conditions After having told his story and getting weaker by the day John and Connie suddenly see Evangeline appear in the sky and decide to head for the ship since Evangeline has gained full control of herself having disabled her master Tug and put Raef in one of those Waitsleep wombs for Evangeline to take care of him Tug still tries to save his skin to manipulate John and Connie with the excuse that saving Raef will be disastrous for them all as Evangeline will not care any about anyone only herself and Raef whom she s come to trust and love hide spoiler
