I hate trilogies. I really do. Most of the time, the author barely writes anything interesting in the first book, let alone those that follow.
Having said that, let me tell you that John Varley has written one of the great SF stories of the last twenty-five years. "Titan" (with its companion volumes, "Wizard" and "Demon") tells the story of Cirocco Jones and the crew of the NASA spacecraft DSV Ringmaster as they meet, are changed by and ultimately must fight Gaea, the living planet. The characters are vivid and well-drawn; Varley has justifiably drawn praise for his strong, realistic female characters.
Like Jack Chalker did in "Well of Souls", Varley gives us a powerful story of humanity lost and regained in the face of epic struggles. His reach sometimes exceeds his grasp -- especially in "Demon" -- but I recommend this trilogy wholeheartedly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved the series: Titan, Wizard, Demon 27 Mar 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is a series of books I've read multiple times. They are well-written, nicely plotted and there are many memorable characters in this story who stick with you after you are done reading about them. I'd love to find out more about what happens to Cirocco Jones and her friends after the events described in Demon.

Wizard is easily as good as its prequel, Titan; the two are among the best books I have ever read. The fall into alcoholism (and subsequent recovery from it) by the main character, one of my personal role models, is touching. The story is compelling, offering both emotion and action. It is a must-read for all lovers of great writing, whether they are sci-fi fans or not.

1.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyed Titan, finding Wizard hard work 13 Nov 2012
By Matt C
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I thought Titan was a good book with some decent intrigue + questions that needed answering. The thing is, by the end of that book, pretty much everything I wanted to know was answered. Wizard doesn't really have much to add.. it just fills a massive amount of detail about things I never really wanted to know more about.

There's no new mystery to solve. It's all about fleshing out what we already know. I've been skipping chapters to see if there's anything new + interesting, but I'm now seriously thinking of getting a new book.
