Charles Sheffield has givin me a gift of several hours of pure escape. This is a great book and I could not put it down. Fast moving, love interest, politics, survival, it is all there. I am looking forward to reading \"Starfire\" the sequel to this book.
Very enjoyable read. What happens when Alpha Centauri goes supernova and the EMP kills all microchips? Read it to find out.
I enjoyed this book tremendously! It was fast paced, had believable characters and story. It could happen!
Alpha Centuri goes supernova. For about a month there are two suns in the sky in the southern hemisphere, then the EMP hits just as man kind is pulling out of the weather deluge of rain, snow and hurricanes. Was it a fluke or was it a delibarate?
This was a great book! It starts off a little bit slow, but once it gets started it is very enjoyable. I really liked the characters, and the very end has a twist that is worth the read.
More fun apocalypse fiction--a threat from space drops the world into the dark ages.
A after Alpha Centauri goes super nova and the earth is seriously damaged and what happens
"One of Charles Sheffield's most cleverly plotted and vigorously entertaining works to date"- Locus
"Charles Sheffield is one of the very best hard science fiction writers in the world". - Kim Stanley Robinson
"Sheffield clothes the most advanced speculations of modern science in alluring forms of beauty and danger".-The Washington Post Book World"
This was a great read! Post Apocalyptic story - modern science fiction at its best and a good story line. I will not say that this ranks up there with the Greats of the 20th Century....but the writing is close.
I liked this one enough to order more of Sheffield...say no more?
If you are just starting out reading sci-fi, try this one....not way out there in the impossible, quite plausible.
