There is apparently a marked difference in the novels that sci-fi great Robert Silverberg wrote before 1967 and the ones he penned from '67 to eight or nine years after. Those two dozen novels of the 1954-'65 period, it has been said, are well-written, polished, plot-driven tales reminiscent of the pulp era of sci-fi's Golden Age. But after author/editor Frederik Pohl gave Silverberg freedom to write as he chose in '67, a new, more mature, more literate quality entered Silverberg's work, and the ...more

Çıtır çerezlik bir roman daha. Açıkçası Sİlverberg çok derinlere inmeden, yüzeysel olarak anlatmış her şeyi. Bilim kurgu olarak çok teknik bir şey beklemeyin. Açıkçası ben Philip K Dick'in o komplo teorili romanlarına çok benzettim ama tabi onların yanında dediğim gibi çok hafif kalıyor.

Invasores Terrestres é um dos primeiros romances de Robert Silverberg (1958), destacado autor de ficção científica, que revela já uma grande maturidade do escritor na abordagem, de uma forma surpreendente, ao tema da manipulação da opinião pública pela publicidade em prol de interesses puramente corporativos e financeiros. Neste romance, o autor eleva ao expoente máximo o cinismo inerente à publicidade, inventando uma trama em que a opinião pública do planeta Terra é levada a acreditar que um gr ...more

Üstat Silverberg'ün ilk işlerinden biri olmasına rağmen hayli sürükleyici bir macera. Keyif ve heyecanla okudum. Keşke daha çok kitabı dilimize kazandırılsa.

Keyifli okuma ama daha fazlası var sanmıştım. Başladığı gibi devam etmedi diyebiliriz, ama hızlı keyifli yine de.
