Good Grief I just lost my review.Here s a summary, alas 06 Nebula winner, equal parts Space Opera and Noir Mystery, but that really translates mostly into Future History Archeology, with a treasure hunting bent, twists and turns, lots of interesting characters, and lost spacecraft and lost colonies.Was I really happy about the last twist and the epilogue Hell yes All this takes place about 10k in the future, but there s a legend of a lost colony gone 9k ago before the advent of FTL travel or com [...]
This was the Nebula Award winner for 2006, so I thought I d be in for a treat The premise sounded pretty good 9,000 years in the future, two antiquities salvage experts find a relic from a lost colony ship which leads to big adventure and lots of danger.There are a lot of cool ideas about future technology I especially liked the avatars of famous historical persons, assembled from all available data on the net The alien relations the humans have with the Mutes is fairly interesting Humans and Mu [...]
First of all, this is the most entertaining science fiction novel I ve read in ten years, since I discovered the Hyperion Cantos I have read quite a bit of scifi, and this is among the best of the best I honestly do not understand why there are not five star reviews.Here s why I loved it It takes place in ten thousand years but it ascertains that human beings will be largely the same History gets lost the older you go back Lessons from history are still the same Mystery begets interest This is [...]
Seeker is the most original, interesting, and thoughtful of the Alex Benedict novels Like the others, so long as you don t take it too seriously, you can have some fun reading it I give this one four stars instead of three like the others because it has some really cool, original ideas woven in.I m not a big McDevitt fan, but I like the Alex Benedict novels They re reasonably well crafted Just think of this book as a little roughage for your mind.
I stumbled onto this book when going over a list of Nebula Award winners I must say as a sci fi story it plays differently then most of the other books in the genre It s a mix of Indiana Jones with Marco Polo set in the distant future It s a lost civilization story where the main characters are treasure hunters looking for rare items from the distant past The story takes place 10,000 years into the future humans have been traveling in space for so long that space faring civilizations have risen [...]
I listened to the audio book, don t do that The woman who reads this is terrible There is no drama in her voice She differentiates the different women characters by making them or less breathy That s just too much for me to stand.I cannot believe this is a Nebula Award winner At first the plot was fairly interesting, although there is a ton of info dumping going on But it kept going long past when it should and the ending was unfulfilling Plus there is bad science.I don t have the patience to d [...]
Great mix of sci fi, mystery and adventure.Thes book remind me of a mix of Sherlock Holmes and Indiana Jones thrown into a sci fi setting A mystery story set in the future, with an antiquities dealer as the main protagonist In this universe the human race has been in space for about 20,000 years In that time many ships, colonies and valuable items have gone missing Alex Benedict, with the help of Chase Kolpath, specializes in finding missing and valuable items.Seeker is the story of Margolia, a [...]
3.5 stars Pretty good Along the way I was wishing for action, like in Engines of God, but the ending is really good McDevitt has an above average amount of humanity in his books, and that kept me going.
I read this some years ago and enjoyed itd did the same this time as well
This is book three of the Benedict series All the Alex Benidict books are set about 10,000 years in the future So when one of Benedict clients come to him with a cup that came from a colony ship lost 9,000 years ago Alex sits up and takes notice How did the cup get back to the known worlds Where was the 9,000 year old ship it came from Did the ship make it to it s mysterious destination Is there a colony there now These are the question Alex and his partner have to answer.
Another great McDevitt story I would have rated it higher, except the narrator s voice started to get to me in the last 1 4 of the book.
delivreenlivres 20Ce troisi me tome est toujours dans la m me veine que les pr c dent et donc aussi sympa lire et distrayant Il a beau tre le troisi me tome, c est le seul de la s rie qui a t traduit et il peut tr s bien tre lu ind pendamment des autres.Le Seeker tait l un des deux vaisseaux qui ont amen les Margoliens vers leur colonie A l poque le monde n tait pas un bon endroit pour y vivre et toutes les autres tentatives de colonie pr c dentes avaient chou Mais ceux ci ont quand m me tent le [...]
It was ok but nothing in this book really needs to be scifi, it could be set in any time from the past to now Just a detective story that happens to occur 10,000 years in the future although there is little that seems much different from now besides instantaneous FTL travel Surprised to find out this was an award winner Some of his other books are much better 2 Brown Dwarf Stars
_Seeker_ is essentially a mystery novel set in the far, far future How far into the future In this setting, humanity has been out among the stars for an astounding 15,000 years Empires rose and fell, new religions, languages, and civilizations came and went Dark Ages and Renaissances and new Dark Ages three different ones apparently have happened, with humanity on different worlds alternately turning towards the stars and then away from them for decades, centuries, millennia Author Jack McDevitt [...]
Seeker is actually the third book in Jack McDevitt s Alex Benedict series, but I picked up A Talent for War book 1 some time ago and couldn t build any interest before putting it down and my library didn t have Polaris book 2 , so when the urge took me to give McDevitt another shot, Seeker is where my attention landed Anyway, the basic premise is that protagonist Alex Hunter and his assistant narrator Chase are antiquarians grave robbers if you prefer in the far future ca 10,000 A.D C.E whatever [...]
Did I tell you I finished the book Seeker by Jack McDevitt Well I did It was a lot like Polaris and I liked both.It s called An Alex Benedict Novel and certainly Alex is one of the main characters, but the entire novel is written in the first person perspective NOT through Alex but through his lovely assistant, Chase Kolpath As in Polaris, she does most of the work, though clearly she is only doing it because she is Alex s employee and he told her to do it, but she uses initiative and makes it h [...]
I was introduced to Jack McDevitt when my spouse picked up u A Talent for War u at the bookstore about eighteen months ago and didn t have time to read it before I ran out of new books and picked it up I have devoured everything he s written voraciously since then I prefer the Benedict books to the Hutchins books Priscilla is kind of a whiner while Alex is a badass capitalist, and he twigs as kind of a warm and fuzzy David Xanatos lite Also, space mysteries What s not to love u Seeker u is a boo [...]
Similar to the familiar idea of searching for Atlantis, this novel s characters are searching for the lost civilization of Margolia I d just made the association that the main character and his assistant had a similar style and relationship as does Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson when I happened to glance at the book flap where I read that this novel is a classic style investigative tale with Alex serving as an amateur sleuth Holmes and Chase as Watson I guess this is testimony that my impressions [...]
The premise of this book was interesting the search for a 9,000 year old space ship and a lost civilization Unfortunately I never totally connected to the characters This is the third book in the Alex Benedict series and I haven t read the first two but the book was told in first person by Alex s assistant, Chase Colpath Alex seemed almost a minor character, except when he comes in and takes all the credit for Chase s hard work.I think my problem with the characters is that they are in fact tomb [...]
An interstellar archaeological mystery, Seeker is the story of an antiquities dealer and importantly, his assistant A shady woman brings them an artifact she wants to sell, and as they track down the item s provenance, they stumble on to a larger mystery surrounding a lost spaceship and the people on board This is plot driven science fiction in the Niven tradition characters are given some development, but there is no question they re secondary to the plot Fortunately the plot is engaging and f [...]
This was my first introduction to Jack McDevitt and I must say since then I ve read about 10 of his novels Probably my favorite line of his, the Alex Benedict novels in which Seeker is I believe 3, involve both science fiction future societies and good old fashion detective yarns A man who can start a plot over a murder about a porcelain tea cup in a future with star drive and all that goes with it has something going for him Not to mention he writes first person female.You want a break from run [...]
Another excellent far future interstellar archaeology novel in the Alex Benedict Chase Kolpath series I was particularly struck with the number of convincing characters that are introduced, and the large number of events that transpire there s a big, sweeping epic contained in an average length novel Another nice trait is that McDevitt doesn t explain everything that happens he leaves it up to the reader to fill in some of the blanks, which is refreshing and occasionally challenging This is one [...]
As with Polaris Alex Benedict 2 there is plenty of actual science fiction to go with the mystery that antiquities dealer Alex Benedict is determined to solve Although it seems to me that these really should be called Chase Kolpath 2 since she is the narrator and seems to do most of the work As in the other McDevitt books I ve read, the storyline is fairly straight forward and pulled me through by dint of action and interesting discoveries I actually was surprised by the villain in this one and w [...]
Very old school SF here, and in a very good way Far future treasure hunters seek a lost ship and the equally lost colony of emigrants that left earth thousands of years ago Great pacing and characterization, wry wit, good tension buildup Nicely done This is the third in this series, so I ll be going back to start from the beginning It s been a while since I ve read something of this caliber Simply enjoying reading
You can always tell the difference between a good book and a terrible one.When an author can spend 150 pages explaining the arduous efforts of a character researching the history of a cup, and you find yourself absolutely enthralled, you re reading a good book.I ve read novels that peg themselves as grand, epic space operas, where I couldn t even care one iota about a single character or story point.Those were not good books.This one was Who knew a cup could be so interesting
An interesting concept However the author seems to have used this book as a study in anti climatic writing A work of what not to do
I m kind of torn between three stars and four stars but it kind of grew on me so I will give it the benefit of the doubt Nice ending, even if you could see it coming.
Extremely good far future science fiction It feels grounded on actual science, and has a phenomenal ending.
In the middle of this book, our anxious protagonist takes a fantastic trip into Ashiyyurean Space It is a captivating and tense sequence where we learn a little about this shadowy part of McDevitt s Universe The rest of the book, however, suffers from predictability After a while I started to realise that there was only one possible conclusion to all this Polaris , in contrast, genuinely kept me guessing When the mystery is solved, society s reactions and the decisions on what to do about it ar [...]
This is the third of the Alex Benedict books Alex Benedict is an antiquity dealer some 9,000 years into the future, in a world where humanity is spread across the galaxy Those 9,000 years or have not been without trouble and there are a fair amount of lost records and mysteries to investigate.In Seeker Benedict gets his hands on a plastic mug that seems to come from a 9,000 year old spaceship Trying to find out about it, it becomes both a mystery and a thriller, as someone seems willing to use [...]
