Présentation de l'éditeur

Aliens have arrived with capabilities we can hardly imagine. But they refuse to communicate with us! Why do they ignore us, and what do they want? Tom Kingsley is an astronomer at the right place and the right time to get the first photographs of the alien spacecraft. As a result, he becomes the leading scientific expert on the aliens and their technology. (When you are the only one in a field, you are the expert.) Tom and his team work to understand the science behind the aliens’ remarkable and overwhelming technologies and the powerful and bright “stars” that they begin to place in orbit about the earth. As governments, the scientific community, and ordinary people try to understand and deal with the situation, the number of these “stars” slowly increases. Soon the Earth will grow warmer. And neither Tom, nor anyone else, can imagine a peaceful purpose for these “stars”. This is a hard science fiction novel situated in the very near future. It is written by a former “rocket scientist” and part-time engineering professor. It contains a brief appendix for those who desire a more detailed explanation of the science that is the basis of this novel.

Old-School Science Fiction Fun 3 mars 2014
Par Charles Ott - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Let me start with the bad news: Allen Ferrenberg hasn't got his writing voice entirely under control here. Like most old SF fans, my threshold of pain for lumps of exposition is pretty darn high, and this book still struck me as having far too much exposition. "Hard science" SF doesn't get any crunchier than this! Ferrenberg also has some things still to learn about developing characters and setting up dramatic situations. Now with that aside, this is still a really wonderful science fiction book. I raced through it in three days and was delighted throughout. This is a big-screen story of disaster striking the Earth, which may remind you of "When Worlds Collide" (which the author mentions) and Fritz Lieber's "The Wanderer". It is full of wonder-full science handled with respect for what is real, cosmic concepts, characters with interesting stories, and lots of excitement. Even with the occasional clumsiness in writing, this is well worth your time and I will certainly be looking forward to this author's next book.

A good read in spite of itself 12 août 2014

The writing in this story is absolutely dreadful. The dialogue is trite, the characterization is shallow, the sub-plots are inane, and the behaviour of the humans is copied almost exactly from the 1953 movie "War of the Worlds" (the movie, not the book). In fact one of the most annoying aspects of this book is that the attitudes and capacity for imagination of the characters seem more like 1955 than 2014. I really don't mean all this as criticism, just statement of fact. I'm sure Mr. Ferrenberg knows he's no novelist, but that is not really what this book is for. This book is best thought of, not as a novel, but as an extended essay on a fascinating premise carried out to a logical and scientifically plausible conclusion. At no point did I think I had everything figured out. At no point did I stop wanting to find out what comes next. That's kind of the definition of a good read.

Lovely. Well done, sir. 25 mai 2014

I've missed the scientist in science fiction writers recently. Perhaps I'm just not reading the right books. Mr Ferrennbergs logical approach and systematic explanations were a nice change. Don't get me wrong. The human element was strong enough to make all of the protagonists sympathetic. (good job, Sir. I liked 'em). I look forward to more from this fella.

couldn't put it down! 16 novembre 2013

The scientific facts and accuracy were a great addition to the exciting tale! I couldn't put it down waiting to find out what was going to happen, and I actually learned quite a bit of new information while patting myself on the back when I completely understood a concept. Great book Dr. Ferrenberg!!

Good read at any price, but a steal if under $2.99 28 octobre 2014
Par JDullens - Publié sur Amazon.com

A gigantic alien ship is releasing many small stars on the earth's orbit. What are their purpose, they want to adapt earth to their needs, just observe, do tests, experiments, destroy a threat? Read the book to know the answer.

The author used the point of view of different people to show how things would be perceived and affected as the events occurred: an astronomer and his biologist wife, a young inter-racial South-African couple, a Bolivian farm family and an older retired American couple. That's not a suspenseful story "per se", but the events and their consequences, and the mystery about the aliens real purpose kept me reading and engaged all the time.

I'm a science fiction buff and love first contact stories. This book is classified as hard SciFi and the author gives a basic description of the technologies used/speculated throughout the story in the final chapter, but don't be afraid, you won't need technical knowledge to appreciate it. Good job Ferremberg! Congratulations!

PS: As to avoid minor spoilers, I've added a comment to my own review with information about some questions the book left open, what some readers can think a bit frustrating - not my case.
