5.0 out of 5 stars Eon Book 3 Legacy
Only got into Greg Bear recently. Found his work facinating. Hi tech scifi very well written. Read 2 previous Eon books. This one is a spin off when leading character was a young man. This was written in the 80's but very advanced for it's time. Can't wait to read more Greg Bear's work. Would highly recommend.

1.0 out of 5 stars A poor end to the Eon series
I greatly enjoyed Eon and Eternity. By comparison, Legacy is dull. The book explores one paricular idea outlined in the first books which really doesn't justify an entire novel. The first half of the book could be summarised in a couple of pages. The lengthy build up of situations and characters is simply not required. The ending is nothing surprising and, quite...

I greatly enjoyed Eon and Eternity. By comparison, Legacy is dull. The book explores one paricular idea outlined in the first books which really doesn't justify an entire novel. The first half of the book could be summarised in a couple of pages. The lengthy build up of situations and characters is simply not required. The ending is nothing surprising and, quite frankly, not worth the effort of reading the preceding pages. If you enjoyed the first two books, I would strongly recommend avoiding the third.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 22 Dec 2012
This review is from: Legacy: Eon Book 3 (Kindle Edition)
I loved the other books in this series but I think Greg Bear has pushed the series a bit too far. The plot seems strained and the characters thin, certainly when compared to the other books.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but was that really the final book in the series?, 24 Nov 2012

This review is from: Legacy: Eon Book 3 (Kindle Edition)
Taken on its own the book is good and I enjoyed it, but it was not a conclusion to the Eon series (I don't know if it was actually intended to be the final book), I suggest the Greg Bear gets his pencil sharpened and writes a suitable finale - there is certainly space for it and I'm sure there would be good demand for it too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Eon 3, 19 Oct 2012

This review is from: Legacy: Eon Book 3 (Kindle Edition)
I enjoyed this story. It's not a continuation of the story of the Thistledown which was what I was expecting in the third book. Instead it concentrates on the adventures of Olmy ( a younger Olmy than in the previous two books) as an undercover investigator on a planet colonised by dissidents from the Thistledown. It's completely different to the previous two books in setting and content and I found it quite absorbing.
