I have loved the Thunder and Lightning series so far And while I still liked this book it seemed written just as a tour of the asteroid I would have liked to see it move the story a little further along especially with as long as we wait between books

characters Dark Lightning John Varley Ü 7 Read Read & Download ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ü John Varley Known for superior science fiction” The Philadelphia Inuirer author John Varley returns to his Thunder and Lightning series with a novel of how one man’s volatile genius could alter a starship’s epic plunge into a future where human survival is just a theory On a voyage to New Earth the starship Rolling Thunder is powered by an energy no one understands except for its eccentric invent. This book was terrible The author should not try to write teenage girls The vast majority of the book is long digressions about life inside an asteroid life with the crazy family and on and on I must admit I skimmed a lot of pointless drivel to get to the story There were also random information dumps best described as Science for Dummies It never felt like anyone was really in dire straits The bad guys were incompetent the good guys kept revealing previously unmentioned talents and always escaped trouble easily SHOW DON T TELL The end of the book is a giant Deus ex Machina that incidentally had little to do with the plotDon t read this book

characters Dark Lightning John Varley Ü 7 Read Read & Download ☆ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ü John Varley Ouncement The ship must stop or everyone will die These words from the mission’s founder the man responsible for the very existence of the Rolling Thunder will send shock waves throughout the starship and divide its passengers into those who believe and those who doubt And it will be up to Cassie and Polly to stop a mutiny discover the truth and usher the ship into a new age of exploratio. It s only fair to warn you that I am a long time Varley fan and have read all his work multiple times It pains me to write anything negative but I cannot regard this book as anything but a fairly weak addition to an otherwise brilliantly entertaining series Several reviewers seemed to be under the impression that this was a YA book and I can see how they thought so My immediate source of dissatisfaction was his choice of main characters Twin teenage girls How trite I also uestion why they had been given all this training when none of the other kids notably the useless and boring Patrick in the clan had received any There was entirely too much vapid teen girl nonsense conversation that added nothing to developing the characters nor the plot Underneath the story and the characters was simple disappointment that the world inside the ark was not in the least interesting Certainly not the fantastical yet plausible society building that I have come to expect from Varley So they had an amusement park and a casinobig deal I look to Varley for startlingly original environments that make me want to be there myself Not rural England for fucks sake As I m writing this I m realizing just how many aspects of this caused me disenchantment I think I shall regard this book as a transition short story a setting of the stage for the next book when they arrive on the planet and commence to explore I m fervently hoping he harks back to his astonishing Gaea Trilogy both in depth and writing style There s enough books out there written by and for dumb peopleI d like to see him write for his established admirers His book Slow Apocalypse was his one bad bookI shall brook no others

    (PDF/EPUB) [Dark Lightning] Dark Lightning was a satisfying ending to the Thunder and Lightning series I did get a little tired of reading about the pedestrian concerns of twin female teenagers but certainly the resolution made up for it Plus I did enjoy the whole space Cajuns save the day concept I do not think this series has been John Varley's best work but then again for my own reasons I will always love the Gaean trilogy the most

    (PDF/EPUB) [Dark Lightning] varley is superbeach of the thunder and lightning books has taken off in it's own direction clearly part of the same universe just as cleary making it's own points this one had a nearly heinleinian flavor don't kill me for using that adverbjective but stayed true to varley's style the crazy fast paced hard to believe action that is so present in most of his works stormed right through this one too and somehow he makes it all see
