5.0 out of 5 stars the book that links the past with the future and our present, 6 Nov 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Intervention (Paperback)
I have read several Julian May books but Saga of the Exiles and Galactic Milieu 'trilogies' are by far the best. I have re-read them so often i have had to buy a new set! Intervention though is my overall favourite, linking 'Exiles with 'Milieu. With characters like Uncle Rogi, it maintains an element of normal humanity. As i first read these books in the 80s and early 90s it was fascinating to see how the near future mentioned in the Intervention panned out. Julian May mentions such phenomena as the 1999 eclipse for example. I still await the intervention though! Like many good sci-fi writers, she takes an everyday idea and extends it, such as using myths we are familiar with and offering her version of their origins. However, for potential readers, Intervention does not stand alone - and a reader is likely to find that there are potentially 7 other books to read to make complete sense of it. It was good to read that there are others out there who wander in the pliocene and in the galactic milieu......
