Présentation de l'éditeur

TIME IS RUNNING OUT FOR HUMANITY

It is one hundred years before the events of Ender's Game. Tens of millions are dead in China as the invading Formics scour the landscape and gas cities with a lethal alien chemical. Young Mazer Rackham and the Mobile Operations Police scramble to find a counteragent, while asteroid miner Victor Delgado infiltrates the alien ship in near-Earth orbit.

Victor needs to find a way to seize the ship and end the war, but he'll need a small strike force of highly skilled soldiers to pull it off. In this last-ditch effort to save what's left of humanity, Mazer Rackham and his team may be just the men for the job . . .

The thrilling final novel in the First Formic War series

Soyons honnêtes: Je ne pense pas qu'Orson Scott Card ait fait autre chose qu'apposer son nom sur ce volume. Si vous regardez ce livre, vous avez probablement lu les parties 1 et 2 de la trilogie (Earth unaware, et Earth afire); si ce n'est pas le cas, commencez par là. Mais dans le doute, je vais revenir sur toute la trilogie.

L'histoire racontée à travers "The First Formic War" nous présente le premier contact entre l'humanité et les formics, lorsque ces derniers avaient "envahi" la Chine et décimaient sa population sans se rendre compte qu'ils avaient affaire à une race consciente.

On va donc suivre l'histoire selon le point de vue de plusieurs personnages:
Victor Delgado, un jeune mineur/ingénieur du vaisseau indépendant El Cavador et dont la "famille" va faire son possible pour prévenir le monde de l'arrivée des Formics après avoir découvert un de leurs éclaireurs.
Lem Jukes, le fils du puissant industriel Ukko Jukes, parti tester dans l'espace le Glaser, un laser modifiant la gravité
Mazer Rackham, alors jeune soldat d'un corps d'élite Néo-Zélandais, qui va devenir le héros que l'on sait par la suite
Bingwen, un enfant surdoué Chinois qui va se retrouver propulsé au milieu de la guerre et servir de lien entre toutes les parties

Et on en arrive au premier problème de cette trilogie. Ce n'est pas réellement une trilogie, mais plus un livre découpé en trois parties.

Ce livre conclut une mini-saga à l'intérêt tout juste historique pour les passionnés de la saga Ender.
Si vous ne l'avez pas lue, je vous suggère plutôt de commencer par "La stratégie Ender".

Même s'il offre une fin (presque) haletante à la première guerre formique évoquée dans la série principale, la dimension philosophique que je trouve caractéristique des romans de la série, étayée par la grande culture historique et sociale d'Orson Scott Card manque désespérément à ce livre. Certaines histoires évoluent parallèlement à l'intrigue, sans la servir, certaines réellement anecdotiques, d'autres dont on ne voit pas d'autre raison que de préparer une saga ultérieure (la deuxième guerre formique ?).

HASH(0x8eb72390) étoiles sur 5 Ender saga is becoming complete 30 juillet 2014
Par Niklas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The books following Ender's Game has always been favourite books of mine. The First Formic War series felt like a fresh re-take compared to the last books published in the original time line, in particular I enjoyed the fist one, Earth Unaware.

Earth Awakens covers how the first Formics were defeated as well as the political games on Earth leading the coalition against the Formics. The political games are focusing on the driving forces behind the scene, driving forces that was more of personal motivation than by the need to form alliances to beat the Formics.

Everything is observed trough the eyes of a few main role players but never through the master minds behind the plans. As a reader one is always aware of the outcome and the fact that at least Mazer Rackham will survive so the reading is to answer the questions how and why things turned out the way they did. As usual in the Ender series we are following the bright and talented persons and as usual the grown-ups are the ones acting stubborn and narrow minded. I would not recommend the First a Formic War series unless the reader is familiar with at least Ender's Game and preferable some of the other books in the Ender series where the political plays in Earth are explained and the reasonings of the Formics.

The surprising thing with the book was that I always kept waiting for the main attack made by Mazer Rackham but it never came. In the few last pages the explanation came.. There is still room for another book but I don't see that it really will add anything compared to what is already known. A few things were left un answered like the fate of Mazer Rackham and Bigwen.

HASH(0x8e8c63fc) étoiles sur 5 Earth Awakens but is not much of a morning person 10 juin 2014
Par T. Edmund - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Many have criticized the First Formic war for crummy physics, shallow political/cultural analysis, and prose that feels like the novelization of a comic book. Those criticisms will not be deferred by the arrival of this book. Even if, like me, you enjoyed the first installments of this trilogy, I suspect you'll find Awakens to be somewhat of a disappointment.

My first criticism is that it appears that rather than put together an original, or create A unique spin on well-trodden sci-fi tropes, Orson Scott Card (or is that just Mr Johnston) opt instead to fill the pages of Awakens with numerous cliche's. (SPOILERS AHEAD) fighter ships flying into ventilation shafts, scientists inventing counter-agents to the Formic's poison (with high school chemistry). The heroes bravely fighting each other over who will risk their lives to attack the mother-ship. I thought Unaware at least had some originality, and Afire made Earth's situation seem genuinely dire. Awakens felt like I was reading a novel stitched together from Star Wars, Independence Day, and StarCraft.

Perhaps worse than mere cliche's is the lack of real tension in the plot. All the characters simply work from whoa to go, Mazer is the consumate soldier, Victor understands stuff about spaceships, and Lem continues his journey from amoral brat to actually OK guy. Lem's character perhaps presented the most interesting development through the novels, however his personality changes in Awakens are so contrived, his father such a stereotype, that this part of book was sub-par too.

The next frustrating part of the this conclusionary novel is the neutering of the Formic forces. After annihilating countless spaceships and human lives, the main characters find out a few factoids about the ships and somehow this leads to them essentially being able to take over the 'mothership' without much more fuss than a few firefights. Considering the size of the Formic vessel and the weirdness of the technology I found it impossible to believe the level of detail Victor was able to give to the strike team when taking over the ship and how little attempt was given to make this part of the book exciting. In fact looking back to recall the novel I found myself feeling slightly betrayed. Shouldn't a trilogy equaling 1000+ pages draw together several plots into an intricate finale that only works because of each characters unique contribution. I couldn't see the point of Rena's story other than to depict racist ideas about Somali Pirates (in space) and while Victor and Jem's relationship had one interesting bump, the majority of the time these former enemies simply just did whatever was needed advance the story. Despite having nothing to do with Jem or Victor, Mazor and Wit were dragged into the final plan simply by Jem sending an email and having endless cash.

My Ultimate problem with this trilogy lies with the author note in book 1. I was promised insight into how the human race gets to the point in Ender's Game where children can be used so ruthlessly as Ender and countless other children were. All the First Formic war gave me was a rather basic development of 'when aliens attack the world will unite their military' and a brief suggestion of the beginnings of the program Ender is part of.

Normally I try to end a negative review with some positive points of the novel, but must confess I'm struggling with Awakens, the humor was off and at times incredibly cheesy, all the characters had Daddy issues, which I could not tell if this was about the authors problems or just a desperate attempt to make the characters appear deep. Even the mere act of writing this review has made me deduct stars to the point where (if memory serves) Earth Awakens may have the ignoble honor of being my first one star review for the year.

Loved the first two books of the series but regrettably this book is lacking. The characters are one dimensional.
Eight year olds are more brilliant than adults (and they are not named Ender). The whole book serves as a prelude to the next book of the series, and is a filler lacking any real substance. The scenarios were absurd and all characters were interchangeable. It wasn't awful but it was disappointing.

HASH(0x8e9f3738) étoiles sur 5 Promising Plot, Horrible Writing 11 juillet 2014
Par C. F Fulbright - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book had the makings of a good read, given an interesting plot. But the writing is just horrible. I can't believe this is Orson Scott Card's work. He was certainly better than that in earlier Ender books, in the Alvin Maker series, and others.

The science is just plain silly, as others have commented. The Formics have interstellar travel, but sailing ship wheels to turn. Vico knows how every control on the Formic ship works even though he spent all of two hours on it, operating none of them, and the Ansible should make all controls un-necessary.

The dialogue is wooden. Lem Jukes is a predictable two-dimensional character who cann't relate to his father, nor accept a single compliment his father gives him. He looks for the cloud in every silver lining. The romance scenes are laughable pre-teen material.

I'll keep reading these because I've committed to the series, but I beg Card to go back to writing them himself, or get a better ghostwriter.

HASH(0x8e9b7768) étoiles sur 5 Great ending to the Trilogy 9 septembre 2015
Par JVMcG - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I found myself emotionally attached to the main cast while rooting for them to succeed and survive. The character development was instrumental in allowing me to feel vested in their success. Halfway through the book I found myself disappointed to realize that the trilogy of this adventure was going to end soon, however the storytelling was so compelling for me that I still read at a brisk pace. The culmination of the casts' efforts to overcome the invasion of the formic brood lead to a satisfying ending to the trilogy. I thoroughly enjoyed going back to Ender's world and hope another adventure arrives soon.
