    READ ¹ A Fire Upon the Deep A Fire Upon the DeepI want to make it clear that I don't lightly write rave reviews Please read the following sentence twiceThis is an absolutely fantastic bookOn the outskirts of the Galaxy far from the physical constraints of the Galactic core faster than light travel is possible and Transcended intelligences flourish to a complexity that dwarfs human comprehension Scavenging for buried knowledge on a dead world a party of humans awakes an ancient evil an archive containing an entity so powerful and so malign that it begins to sweep across the galaxy overwhelming even the godlike Powers of

    READ ¹ A Fire Upon the Deep A Fire Upon the DeepThis is an impressive work of hard science fiction I admire the author's creation and the writing is decent if not rivetingI enjoyed the story of the Tines aliens with pack minds and I came to like the concept of the zones of thought where different levels of technology are possible in different areas of the galaxyBut I found myself indifferent to the rest of the characters The enemy they called the Blight seemed ominous only in the prologue for the rest of the book it was kept at such a distance that I never felt truly worried about it The Tines character Steel was a sinister villainThe book was long yet the plot seemed shallow and there was little character development except on the planet of the Tines I'm already having trouble remembering why it took so many pages to tell this st

    READ ¹ A Fire Upon the Deep A Fire Upon the DeepEpic science fiction at its best this space opera novel shared the 1993 Hugo Award with Doomsday Book This is incredibly imaginative with a great complex story and detailed believable world building and some of the best alien species ever imagined It's a long sprawling story and the technological parts are rather dated but I still loved itA group of scientists investigating a five billion year old data archive accidentally unleashes the Blight a malignant superintelligence that rapidly learns how to infiltrate and control computer systems and even living species The scientists desperately send a couple of space ships fleeing away with some of their people and some information that may stop the Blight from controlling and destroying galactic civilization One of tho

    READ ¹ A Fire Upon the Deep A Fire Upon the DeepI tried very hard to like A Fire Upon the Deep The reviews for it are stellar and it did won a Hugo Also I am a huge fan of SF so I felt this book would be a sure fire hit with me Not soAs other reviewers pointed out this book has some great ideas Pack sentience is very nice and the idea of zones is intriguing Unfortunately all these are wrapped in very shoddy writing To tell the truth the writing was barely above fan sci fi in some placesThe characterizatio

    READ ¹ A Fire Upon the Deep A Fire Upon the DeepMaybe I'll come off as bi polar when I start this five star review my first of 2011 with an extensive list of why the book I'm applauding is utter garbage But what the hell I'm game if you are Let's do itWhy A Fire Upon the Deep is Utter Garbage1 Mr Vinge's characters are only so so and the humans are the worst of the lot Every once in a blue moon a character will shine which makes it so hard to bear their poor treatment at other critical points Vernor struggles as most sci fi authors do with creating believable characters of depth and dimension that readers can be bothered to care about or will retain in their memories When someone loses everything they hold dear eg their planet I should be able to feel the emotional resonance pour
