I know I'm not the only one going Huh? and I won't be the last.Channeling Mulder, I Want to Believe in this book with potential but so many unanswered questions including:1. How the f**k did Caitlin O'Hara save herself and Jacob and return to their time?2. What was the spirit of Caitlin O'Hara actually doing at the fall of Gaalderkhan?3. How do the olivine tiles actually work? Are they like the memory crystals Superman has at the Fortress of Solitude? (I'm talking Christopher Reeve-Superman, not [...]
I remember having mentioned a certain turbulence when reviewing A Dream of Ice. I was referring to the process of getting back into the storyline after a rather long intermission. I am pleased to announce that nothing of the sort happened when starting The Sound of Seas. To be quite honest, it surprised me how quickly I fell back into it, as if we had never truly parted ways. For such a dense novel, in the sense of being incredibly rich in detail, I find that to be extraordinary.“Either everyt [...]
Never mind the Sound of Seas - what you can actually hear are the cogs of my brain whirring as I try to understand what I've just read. Seriously. If anyone can explain this trilogy to me I'd be eternally grateful. Gillian?
More of a 2.5
I'm sorry to report that while the first two books in Gillian Anderson and Jeff Rovin's trilogy managed to deliver surprisingly good adventures, the finale caps things off in a slipshod, disjointed fashion. It splits its story too many ways to count, doesn't focus enough on the main plot with Anderson's obvious Author Avatar Caitlin O'Hara (I hear she narrates the audiobooks too, of course), and overall feels like it's throwing up too much information to keep track of for its barely 300-page len [...]
So, having completed the trilogy, all I have to say is What. The. Fuck. I still don't know what the hell just happened or what the purpose of this story was or really much of anything. I have soooooo much to say, but it's 6:30 in the morning, so my thoughts are going to have to wait until my brain is more awake.
(*3.5 stars)"I am constantly searching for places that rekindle my sense of wonder."In the conclusion of Gillian Anderson and Jeff Rovin's highly entertaining The Earthend Saga it is apparent that the answers we so desired from the getgo are fast approaching. The Sound of Seas was the perfect final installment to the highly entertaining series and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Much like its previous releases, The Sound of Seas follows a similar path of history, science fiction [...]
I have to admit I was quite disappointed with the conclusion of this trilogy. The first book showed such promise, and then it all kinda went downhill from there. This was a very odd conclusion to a trilogy as it felt like very little was happening. There were some quite interesting things that happened in the old civilisation but it just didn't tie together very well. The "explanation" at the end was just rather baffling, trying to pull in string theory in a way that made no sense at all. And th [...]
This was the hardest book in the series to read, especially the first half. It felt like the writing was rushed and editing was skipped over. I was lost most of the time, which was partially my own fault because I forgot a lot of the previous book. Still, they should have found a way to work in some background before chapter 12. The ending, however, was satisfying and I surprisingly really enjoyed the more philosophical parts toward the end. I'm very excited to see this done as a TV show.
OK, so I cheated & went straight for the audio. Because Gillian Anderson could read a Flushing phone book to me and keep me enthralled Sadly, I still don't have any idea what this book is about
This was not nearly as interesting as the first two books in the series. :/
I've been listening to this series on Audible. Gillian reads it which I really enjoy. I suggest you read them in order. These books are not predictable which I really appreciate!
This is the third and final book in Gillian Anderson and Jeff Rovin's Earthend Saga.Spoilers below for the previous titles:As established at the end of the first book, A Vision of Fire, the series deals with an ancient civilisation, the Galderkhaan, who perished several millennia ago. The second book, A Dream of Ice had them communicating with people in the present day through special tiles.I was a bit confused about the ending of the second book, which I thought at first involved history being [...]
A disappointing conclusion to the trilogy, but has a lot of potential for a possible movie adaptation, where many of the problems I had with the story could be resolved with some visual storytelling. As it stands, I still don't really understand how the tiles work, or really any of the science, and felt like this book got bogged down by logistics and the plot suffered because of it.
I read this one close on the heels of the second, so I didn't have any trouble keeping up with things.Ghalderkhaan is a rich, but not perfect, society and Caitlin's connection to it holds both positive and negative ramifications, for her and for people connected to her.The ending of the trilogy give the term Big Bang a whole new context, and Caitlin's final experience with respect to Ghalderkhaan was chock full of food for thought.
In a nutshell, I thoroughly enjoyed the series but this ending felt kind of abrupt. As if there was a nasty deadline and they needed to wrap everything up really quickly, no questions asked. Still a page-turner.
Bloated, long, dull, and confusing end to the series. I just skimmed through the last 30% because I was so bored and irritated. Even though I skimmed, I still think there were big plot holes in the conclusion. I would not recommend spending your time on this trilogy.
The first book in this trilogy is the strongest. It could almost stand alone except for a few unanswered questions. Books 2 and 3 seem to have some disconnect between moving the plot forward and trying to answer all the unanswered questions; it felt a bit rushed and sloppy.
I have really enjoyed this series, but this third and seemingly final book was the weakest for the very fact that do little happened, and so little was resolved.
Great end to the series, although in places something of a carbon-copy of the second. I'll file this under X for "xerographic".
Interesting story and a good read. I look forward to reading more from the series.
I have to admit that this one was my least favourite but I'd still recommend it!
At times I feel like I understand this series, but then others
more compelling than the second one, the characters held more of the story than the setting. but still no clarity.
Was a bit bored of the adventure. And to be honest, didn't really have a clue what was happening.
Great end to the series. I stayed up till 2 o'clock in the morning to finish it. The ending was a little ambiguous, but it worked for this book. It still left you with questions, which I quite liked.
What I like best about this book, or rather the whole series, is the potential. The idea is interesting and most of the execution is great to read. I am not quite sure what to male of this ending as it seemed somewhat rushed to me in the end. I couldn't stop reading, though, and for that the book gets 4 stars.
I read to finish a series. It was not awe inspiring, but readable.
There is so much brilliant material in this book, I really feel like she could easily get another trilogy out of this! Interesting conclusion to this trilogy, definitely leaves you with something to think about with regards to the supernatural and the spiritual. I would love to see this world that Gillian created fleshed-out even more. And I'd love to sit down and ask her just exactly how in the world she had the time to come up with something as elaborate and brilliant as this, and then get it [...]
This trilogy by Anderson's was such a pleasure to read, and at times, it was profoundly emotional.The concept was a brilliant mix of modern and fantasy: for example, the idea of global warming leading us to the brink of cataclysm, not only through "natural" means, but fantastical ones and back through time as well. This was a clever way to weave science fiction into very genuine human concerns. Also, creating a compelling, but very human protagonist as a link between worlds was a device that has [...]
