    I had absolutely no issues in giving this a full 5 star rating, because even though the novel was nominated in 78 for the Hugo, that it comes out of the mind of one of thewell beloved SF F authors of our times, the novel is absolutely gorgeous all on its own.Why Because we re getting such depth of world building, from the science of the solar planetary, to the culture it spawned, to an absolutely amazing depth of social explorations, to a very cool discourse on the sexes as seen from mul I had absolutely no issues in giving this a full 5 star rating, because even though the novel was nominated in 78 for the Hugo, that it comes out of the mind of one of thewell beloved SF F authors of our times, the novel is absolutely gorgeous all on its own.Why Because we re getting such d...

    This could have been a one star book if not only because of the interesting parts of the worldbuilding a dying world and also because I don t want to group a GRRM book with real, trashy books that I hate I seriously thought the dying world thing would be the main attraction and at least gave me back my trust to that trope after being disappointed with Vance s Dying Earth I just did not get this one I was not able to connect with any of the characters Which is understandable since this is This could have been a one star book if not only because of the interesting parts of the worldbuilding a dying world and also because I don t want to group a GRRM book with real, trashy books that I hate I seriously thought the dying world thing would be the main attraction and at least gave me back my trust to that trope after being disappointed with Vance s Dying Earth I just did not get this one I was not able to connect with any of the characters Which is understandable since this is GRRM s first published novel and apparently he did not have that knack of fantastic characterizations since the early days Clearly he grew significantly as a writer The story probably should have stayed as short fiction, like A Song for Lya I thought the conflicts were not interesting enough to make a full novel The planetary romance part of it was really yawn inducing too, I felt like slapping the two main charact...

    I only gave it a 5 because I couldn t give it a 6 This is truly one of the best books ever written Martin creates a culture that jumps right off the page, and before you even get to appreciate the beauty of it, he throws it into conflict with a culture modeled after 20th century America The planet Worlorn itself is also very believable But the characters my gosh, the characters You will not find a single character in this novel that is not fully formed There is a depth of writing that o I only gave it a 5 because I couldn t give it a 6 This is truly one of the best books ever written Martin creates a culture that jumps right off the page, and before you even get to appreciate the beauty of it, he throws it into conflict with a cultu...

    All right, I m writing the first half of this review while I haven t finished the book, but I m having too much frustrated thoughts without an internet connection to put them into status updates, so I thought I d write everything up into this preemptive review, and then later paste it all together into Goodreads Seriously, I m having massively mixed feelings about this book In one hand there s the hero who just doesn t learn and the heroine who s just so stupid and insensitive But in the othe All right, I m writing the first half of this review while I haven t finished the book, but I m having too much frustrated thoughts witho...

    An interesting, complex debut novel from George RR Martin, Dying Of The Light is an old school planetary romance that reminded me quite strongly of both Cordwainer Smith and CJ Cherryh, oddly enough, though the setting is pure Jack Vance Worlorn is a wandering world that enjoyed a brief heydey when, passing near a specatcular star system, it was transformed into a festival world where all the primary centres of human civilisation built cities to house thousands and even millions of inhabitants An interesting, complex debut novel from George RR Martin, Dying Of The Light is an old school planetary romance that reminded me quite strongly of both Cordwainer Smith and CJ Cherryh, oddly enough, though the setting is pure Jack Vance Worlorn is a wandering world that enjoyed a brief heydey when, passing near a spe...

    This book is annoying Well, I didn t finish, so I guess I can only say that about 22% of it.So much backstory and history and characters I frankly just don t get It s a little much for me I like a little of that for sure, because all simple dialog makes a story dull But at some point I just feel like saying Get to the point already As a very straightforward person it s a little painful to listen to people speaking in riddles It just feels a little too dragged out for my tastes So, clea This book is annoying Well, I didn t finish, so I guess I can only say that about 22% of it.So much backstory and history and characters I frankly just don t get It s a litt...

    George R.R Martin created an incredibly rich universe where human civilisation is rebuilding itself after war and collapse, then, in its midst, placed an ephemeral planet in advanced decay Used, then discarded by civilisation, it s being slowly engulfed by cold and darkness But then, he chose to put against this backdrop the sorriest characters in that universe Dumb, fickle, inconsiderate, cowardly and thoroughly uninteresting The result is a tedious story where you grow frustrated by the v George R.R Martin created an incredibly rich universe where human civilisation is rebuilding itself after war and collapse, then, in its midst, placed an ephemeral planet in advanced decay Used, then discarded by civilisation, it s being slowly engulfed by cold and darkness But then, he chose to put against this backdrop the sorriest characters in that universe Dumb, fic...
