The Alien Years

Съществата буквално се появиха от нищото и се приземиха в големите градове по целия свят Лос Андже. One of the best sci fi novels I have read in some time Silverberg has always been one of my favorites in this genre and in my opinion this is one of his best The novel details an alien invasion over a 50 year period using one family the Carmichaels as a focus The Carmichaels struggle for years through several generations to try to rid the earth of the invaders with no success Any attempt at killing the invaders results in harsh reprisals including a virus that kills than half of earth s population The invaders seem to be invincible and use humans as slave labor During the invasion many earthlings collaborate with the invaders and these uislings are hated and despised by the rest of humanity There are several complex characters in the book mostly in the Carmichael family The patriarch of the family fought in Vietnam and was named Anson a name passed down through the generations and a nice tribute by Silverberg to Robert Anson Heinlein Overall a high recommendation for this one

? от гледната точка извънземните нашественици се отнесоха към човечеството по най жестокия начин. Aliens invade Earth and conuer the human race They can probe human minds to get people to do their bidding They can shut off the entire planet s electricity at will When the humans try to retaliate with a satellite attack the aliens release a plague upon the world that kills half the planet s population There are actually three distinct species of aliens the master species are 15 feet tall suid like creatures but there are also smaller creatures with glistening skin and behemoth monsters with dome like heads The glistening and behemoth species are mentioned when the aliens first land on earth but are barely mentioned again I would have liked to read about the relationship among the three species and how they interact and what their respective functions were The book spans fifty years and three generations of a family the main characters in the beginning have died off by the end so there are really no central characters To me that is a weakness of the book Characters in general take a back seat to the plot Also there are so many family members that they are impossible to keep track of and many are named after their parent or grandparent so the reader is thinking Is this Anson III or IV or V I like the aloofness of the aliens with respect to humans They make no attempt to learn human language they just like to probe human minds to control them That clearly demonstrates how superior to humans the aliens considered themselves to be I have mixed feelings about the ending I like that it was not a cliched conclusion but I dislike that there were so many uestions unanswered

    This rating was a tough one if able I probably would have given it 2 12 stars and it probably deserves 3 just based on how well written it is But the rating given is in a large part based on my subjective enjoyment of the book and it all came down to this nagging unhappiness that kept creeping up on me throughout the book and good
