5.0 étoiles sur 5 Thoughtful, imaginative, thrilling 26 janvier 2000
Par actaeon@gateway.net - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I am afraid this book may turn out to have a limited audience: too literary and "unrealistic" for science-fiction fans, and too fantastic for literary types. Too bad, because this is a stupendous book, or rather, series of novels. Some may think it strange that an author with as high-brow a reputation as Doris Lessing would stoop to writing "space fiction" (her term), but she has been incorporating sci-fi elements in her fiction as far back as The Four-Gated City, and maybe farther, depending on your definitions. What is science fiction if not the use of extreme and imaginative settings to point out truths invisible in our crowded world? Science fiction encourages "thinking outside the box," a concept that Lessing has explored in a lifetime of ground-breaking work. What are we? What does it mean to be human? Is there more? Lessing hits these questions with a courageous mind and an arsenal of experience and imagination.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A brilliant analysis of our civilisation 29 mai 1996
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
These 5 novels are difficult reading but well worth the effort.
Doris Lessing has taken her uncanny observation of the
treachery of mankind and translated it into a narrative
as presented by beings from Canopus. What they think
of us, how they've influenced us.

"Shikasta..." is the most harsh, and the most accurate
and my favourite of the set.
"The Marriages..." is a beautiful fairy tale.
"The Sirian Experiments..." is an alternative view of
"Shikasta" and a brilliant depiction of humankind.
"The Representative..." is a beautifully written fantasy
of a dying planet.
"The Sentimental Agents" is a scathing, excellent
commentary on the arrogance of rhetoric. Ours, of course...

While these novels appear to be science fiction, they really
are not. They are "Space Fiction" and are a
thought-provoking, sometimes beautiful, but always brilliant
view of our world and possible others...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Earth through an Alian's Eyes 8 janvier 2000
Par Eve Clements - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This was the first Doris Lessing book I ever read. Because the protagonist is a dry technocrat, the writing is written in that style. Nevertheless, I found the book gripping. Lessing gives a fascinating and enlightening perspective of the development of human society as a whole. Of course, the awakening that takes place in the protagonist's mind as she works with the Canopeans has its own gems of wisdom buried in it. Of the five books in Canopus in Argos: Archives, this one is my favorite.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Experiment successful 22 octobre 2001
Par Philip Challinor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The Empire of Sirius, formerly the enemy of Canopus, has now for some time been its uneasy and mistrustful ally. Though highly advanced technologically, and despite being sophisticated social engineers, the Sirians are suffering some upheaval because of the many members of their population who feel that their life lacks a worthy purpose. Ambien II, a member of the Five who govern the Empire, is befriended by Klorathy, an agent of Canopus, in the course of their mutual dealings upon and around the planet Rohanda. Ambien II's education in the means and motives of Canopus, and her eventual realisation that, doubtless unique in the history of galactic diplomacy, Canopus means what it says and does what it promises, is the major subject of The Sirian Experiments. Doris Lessing has written, "I could like Ambien II better than I do;" which is a pity, for Ambien II, along with Rachel Sherban in Shikasta and the incensed innocent Incent in The Sentimental Agents in the Volyen Empire, is one of the most appealing characters in the quintet. Her growth from efficient, obedient social scientist (who deplores the changing of our planet's name from Rohanda (Fertile) to Shikasta (Wounded) as showing "a mixture of poeticism and pedantry typical of Canopus") into willing pupil, sometime rescuer, and eventually into that amazing paradox, the clear-headed visionary, is a triumph of characterisation. Her report - careful, thorough, just and drily humorous - betters Shikasta in its fusion of the personal with the cosmic, and contains one of the most spectacular set-pieces in the whole series, as well as some of its most poignant personal encounters. The ending is quietly ironic, without the sense of definite progress which was present at the end of the previous two books - the major breakthrough here takes place inside Ambien II herself, though further, exterior victories may just possibly be on the way. This book (not to mention the quintet as a whole) is the kind of thing science fiction was meant to be all about.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Obscure Discordian Masterpiece 31 juillet 2007
Par Taufiq - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Many who read this book would be shocked to learn that Doris Lessing dropped out of school at the age of 14, considering the breadth of knowledge she displays. Maybe they would be less surprised to learn that this series was written shortly after she began studying Sufism. This series not only presents a clever way of providing some persective on human affairs, it also give to us a mythology of prehistory as valid as any other I've come across. The Canopean view of Shammat as not necessarily "evil" and the idea of "forced evolution" were especially valuable to me.
Some parts may be difficult but I found it all highly stimulating and obviously it is very well written. If you're unfamiliar with Chinese culture or have no background knowledge, a book on Chinese history may seem terribly boring to you. Similarly, these books may bore you if you haven't any interest in pre-history or spiritual dimensions. This is a work of science fiction and those who appreciate the genre should enjoy it, however, it is one of those pieces with a broader appeal, perhaps comparable to some of Vonnegut's work.
Robert Anton Wilson's introduction to his illustrated screenplay, Reality is What You Can Get Away With, is an homage to this book and confirmed a feeling I had that this should be added to the Discordian Canon. I know very few who have read this marvel and none who were disappointed. I keep my volumes in a place of honor.
