Format: Paperback
Even better than it's prequels, this book is a masterpiece of imagination containing not only interesting facts but also marvellous little details that many authors wouldn't bother about. I really loved this book, not as much for the humans (which appears somewhat stiff and boring) as for the dinosaurs (the Yilane) - Vainte and espesially the scientists. I just finished reading the triology for the third time, and it just gets better and better the more you read it!

Right! This is one trilogy waiting to for screen adaptation. JJ Abrams, James Cameron, where are you? The Eden trilogy if adapted to the silver screen will smash every box office earnings. The concept of higher reptilian intelligence over humans is just too much for us to handle.
I simply love this Eden trilogy, the originality of the concepts and plots are simply outstanding. Harry Harrison did justice to the story. Those who haven't read the books should do so without bias and they will be calling for a motion picture as well. I have read the trilogy over and over again with something new to discover each time. Great read!

I loved the first volume of this trilogy, got bogged down in the second, and then absolutely loved this third volume. In this one, Harrison devlops his themes of clashing specie-civilizations, which are evolving in new directions as the events unfold. The plot development is brisk, many of the ideas are new, and subtle conclusions are reached.

One of the great faults of sci-fi is that authors get too ambitious. Afterall, they are telling us what the future of mankind might hold, so they tend to megalomania. Due to his conceptual and storytelling talents, Harrison, like Octavia Butler, pulls it off brilliantly and believably. His creation of an alternative intelligence - the social dinosaurs - is one of the most subtle and intriguing creations in all of sci-fi. I have recently read these books over and found them just as interesting and complex as the first go. If you like this kind of ambitious sci-fi, you simply can't do better than these books.

While my partners through the years have laughingly dismissed my love of sci-fi as comic book kitch - and they were usually right! - I must say that there is an occasional book that really has characters worthy enough to enter literature. In my opinion, the characters in this book are that good. They grow, they learn, and they struggle. Their fates and choices are not at all predictable. It is even moving.

Highest recemmendation.
