Top Customer Reviews
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!
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.
