    Review Netherspace Netherspace #1 Netherspace Netherspace #1 Characters µ 2 Andy Lane ☆ 2 Free read An enjoyable space romp based around the fresh premise of a galaxy full of alien species none of whom we have the faintest clue how to communicate with The broader world in which this story is set occasionally seems interesting than the main plot and the ending somewhat fizzles But nevertheless this is a solid opening instalment and there’s certainly of this tale worth telling

Netherspace Netherspace #1

Netherspace Netherspace #1 Characters µ 2 Andy Lane ☆ 2 Free read Iate As an ex army sniper Kara's role is clear But artist Marc has no combat experience although the team's pre cog Tse is adamant that he has a part to play All three know that success is unlikely For how will they negotiate with aliens when communication between the species is impossible. The setting and premise of this book are its only redeeming factors with original ideas and world building that made me look past the parts I disliked and there were many The concept of aliens being impossible for humans to communicate with was a refreshing contrast to the anthropomorphic aliens of pop culture It was fun to hear descriptions of these completely original creatures and how they attempt to relate to humans I also liked the ideas regarding space travel posited in the novelHowever the world building itself cannot stand on its own and ultimately the book is a failure because of the way it treats the characters and their relationships I sensed no character depth while reading and did not imagine them as real people As such there was no suspense because there was no emotional cost to me if one of them died I also did not feel the connection between characters the way the book wanted me to The authors opt to tell rather than show how the characters feel and thus I did not feel invested in any of the relationships because I did not see evidence of them being real Related to the flat characterization is the heavy emphasis placed on irrelevant sex that ultimately does nothing to move the plot forward With no emotional connection to the characters these parts of the novel felt gratuitous and discordant with the rest of the story I was also hyperaware of the male gaze within the writing based on the way the female characters especially Kara are portrayedFinally the plot while taking place within an interesting world is ultimately too slow paced with not enough tension or stakes to make the reader invested The victories are too easily won and the ending has no instance of realization or aha moments In fact hardly any of the uestions introduced in the book are answered making much of the plot feel throwaway and pointlessAltogether I enjoyed reading this novel for the new ideas but feel sad they had to be wasted on such flat writing An altogether different plot and better characterization within the same world could be the SF dreams are made ofA final note I could be wrong but shouldn t Tse have been referred to with gender neutral pronouns such as theythem since Tse s gender is by choice not specified at introduction The use of male pronouns seemed to come out of nowhere And using male pronouns to be gender neutral is something I would expect from SF out of the 1960s certainly not a book published in 2017

Netherspace Netherspace #1 Characters µ 2 Andy Lane ☆ 2 Free read Aliens came to Earth forty years ago Their anatomy proved unfathomable and all attempts at communication failed But through trade humanity gained technology that allowed them to colonise the stars The price live humans for every alien faster than light driveKara's sister was one of hundred. I came across the publicity for this book at a science fiction convention Shortly thereafter I came across both authors in the hotel bar Guys I promised you an honest review and to be fair it s the only kind I doI must confess myself a hopeless Trek saddo but even I get fed up with the aliens all having bilateral symmetry even though I know this is to save the nonexistent special effects budget In addition the aliens are mostly based on something we can already identify Hence you get reptilian bad guys felines baduntrustworthy etc And there s always the good old Universal Translator or some variant thereof to ensure there are nomisunderstandings Not in this book Andy Lane and Nigel Foster have burned the usual script and stamped the ashes underfoot It s been forty years since the Gliese showed up and announced their presence via a light show on the face of the moon They look like three limbed piles of wet leather and communication isimpossible What contact there is goes on via the medium of trade and the Gliese are ready to give us advanced alien tech in return for a range of random human artefacts Most of these are oddly commonplace ones The results range from the amusing to the downright creepy An accident with a Gliese anti gravity generator leaves the Arc de Triomphe suspended three meters above the ground permanently The inhabitants of an entire Alpine village are much less fortunateThe authors have created a post first contact scenario that s fresh inventive and totally credible Humanity has been introduced to the local galactic scene via the Gliese Netherspace drive There are human colonies on the planets of some of the nearer stars AI is now commonplace in most fields of daily life That said the willingness of the Gliese to give out tech to just about anyone has led to the demise of national governments A loose patchwork of city states survives I struggled with this at first before realising that from an anthropological point of view it s not unlikely The downside of course is that since all these advances are based on alien tech human R and D is stagnating It s against this background that a fast paced and enthralling story unfolds A shipload of religious colonists has been kidnapped by another one of the species humanity has met since leaving the solar system The rescue team sent to bring them home comes face to face with the fact that human society is failing socially morally and ethically even as it reaches for the stars The alien cultures they meet are so very alien that no frame of reference is possible As they persevere against incredible odds the truth about the past forty years of alien contact slowly comes into focus Andy Lane and Nigel Foster have done their research for this book with consummate skill I found myself thinking of Professor Hawking s uote about an alien visit being like Columbus and the Indians This book puts a brilliant new spin on that idea It deserves to do really really well as does the seuel Erm there will be one won t there

Review Netherspace Netherspace #1

Netherspace Netherspace #1 Characters µ 2 Andy Lane ☆ 2 Free read S exchanged for this technology and Kara has little love for aliens So when she is drafted by GalDiv the organisation that oversees alien trades it is under duress A group of colonists have been kidnapped by aliens and taken to an uncharted planet and an unusual team is to be sent to negot. Maybe closer to 35 stars but I ll round up I did like this book and will most likely continue on in the series but some of it was a bit off for me Not so much the world it builds which is interesting and worth exploring but just the way it s toldThe book overall gave me the impression that it was about building this world and setting up mysteries to solve than having a clear plot with a good resolution It just didn t seem to come together for me and not much is really explained by the end of it The premise is that there are aliens that we have no way of communicating with so it s understandable that we would be left with a lot of uestions but it s still frustrating There were also certain dialogue and ideas being repeated too often in the exact same way There are only so many times I can read about how impossible aliens are to understand or the same metaphor to describe precognition before I want to shout I get it Let s move on That being said I do really like elements that make this world I like the AI s and their possibilities I like the characterization and mystery of netherspace and its draw for the people who spend time there Something I appreciate is that bisexuality is so easily accepted and doesn t seem to be uestioned in this universe but that also makes one scene where the main character s bisexuality is brought up during recruitment seem rather odd There were a couple other such moments where things happen or are mentioned that don t seem necessary I m hoping their relevance will be explained in later books Or perhaps I m overthinking it and things like SPOILER ALERT random netherspace induced sex is just the authors wanting to have fun and deciding to heck with it I can include bad tropes if I want to The main reason I m not giving this a higher rating is that I was left wanting but not necessarily in a good way The book felt like a setup than a whole story in and of itself I guess that s okay because it s the beginning of a series but I d have preferred not being left with so many unanswered uestionsEnd note Some of my unanswered uestionsWhy is cardamom so importantWhy does netherspace make people want to have sexIs it a breeding thingIs it like Doctor Who where a baby made in such conditions will be specialI m assuming notBut why was it important enough to include their preferences in the simulityWas it part of the staff s negotiationsIf so was the staff important than I d thoughtOr is Greenaway just kind of a weirdo
