Sull'Autore

Larry Niven received his B.A. in mathematics in 1962. His first novel, World of Ptavvs (1966), was a success and launched his career. Niven has won five Hugos and one Nebula award, testimony that his colleagues in the science fiction world respect his work. Perhaps Niven's most well-known creation mostra altro is Ringworld, a distant planet that may be taken as a metaphor for Earth, as it was once great but has since fallen into decay. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra meno

Recensioni

Seguito de *la strada delle stelle* riprende il racconto della situazione descritta nel primo capitolo a distanza di 25 anni, descrivendo i complicati sviluppi della "questione Motie" ovvero come l'impero dell'uomo possa controllare la potenziale minaccia di questa singolare specie aliena.
Il romanzo è di gran lunga inferiore al primo, come idee, sviluppo e ritmo: nella prima parte è lento e prolisso, talvolta noioso, nella seconda gli eventi si fanno più emozionati ma anche terribilmente ingarbugliati e confusi, una sorta di politik-risico sullo sfondo del sistema stellare motie... Le idee ci sarebbero anche ma forse i due autori hanno calcato un po' la mano e si sono persi nella loro stessa creazione. Almeno in parte, direi. In realtà è un romanzo un po' inutile, alla fin fine poco porta alla storia originale... insomma siamo al limite inferiore della sufficienza, consigliato solo per concludere la vicenda Motie.… (altro)

Modesto racconto tra giallo e fantascienza, poco sf e più giallo, scorrevole e gradevole ma veramente niente di che.

Straordinario romanzo che coniuga la più spettacolare space-opera con molti altri contenuti tipici della sf e della narrativa, come primo contatto, politica, strategia, xenoantropologia, l'ideazione di culture e pianeti, psicologia, ecc... e non ultimo anche una piccola storia d'amore.
Lavoro creativo dei due autori spettacolare e ricchissimo, a partire dalla cosmologia imperiale, le tecnologie, la complessa società futura, la struttura politica delle vicende, ecc...
Romanzo affascinante, emozionante, avvincente, assolutamente consigliato.… (altro)

senio | 107 altre recensioni | Sep 3, 2017 |
Supereroi annoiati che passano per un'ambientazione piena di invenzioni fantasiose, superando le difficoltà più assurde senza una goccia di sudore. Dialoghi demenziali.
La cosa che lo rende oltrepiù insoportabile è che l'ambientazione è piena di inventiva e di "senso del meraviglioso": una gemma in un letamaio. Indisponente.
