Coneixement comú



Sono arrivato quasi alla fine, provando e provando in ogni modo a cercare una ragione per continuare per finirlo. Poi mi sono reso conto che la mia vita e troppo corta e ho troppi libri da leggere per perdere tempo con la mediocrità più assoluta.
Che la parola fantacongresso non vi tragga in inganno come ha fatto con me: non si tratta di un congresso spaziale o similari, è invece un neologismo per indicare una "convention" di quelle che negli States abbondano. Non vi tragga, similmente, in inganno il fatto che questo romanzetto da due lire sia stato pubblicato da Urania -e poi tutti lo sappiamo, Urania non era proprio sintomo di qualità in tutte le sue uscite, anzi altalenava e altalena parecchio da un albo all'altro-, questo NON è un romanzo di fantascienza. Si tratta invece di un blando tentativo di mescolare supereroi e investigazione da police procedural, quindi un giallo (giallo sbiadito) in un contesto con mantelli e nomi altisonanti.
Scritto male, tradotto male, sviluppato male. Interesse da parte mia nullo. 2 stelle risicate.

Truly bananas extremely elaborate Klingon plot. Like, incoherent motivations (McCoy keeps going "who knows why Klingons do things?") Ultimately, the most active villain/turncoat turns out to be Finney from TOS 1x14, but's just way too convoluted.

Ironically, I read this just before seeing Star Trek: Generations. "Nexuses" are envisioned as something very different here, but I liked it. The vision of a many-thousands-of-years-old multiverse was sweeping in a way that Star Trek isn't always, and I enjoyed the way that the difficulties of communicating across truly different nonhumanoid being types was treated. Solid, is what I'd say, especially in its ideas, though not particularly striking in characterizations.

Generally pretty interesting, I especially liked getting to spend so much time with Geordi and seeing how his vision altered his perspective on the world. The brief uses of Troi and her connection with Riker were also surprisingly good, although I wish I had seen more of both her and Yar - it was a very dudely book. Unfortunately, the end was rather flimsy: I didn't, and don't, believe that massive multigenerational conflict on a planetary scale can be solved by "ooh scary aliens." But Star Trek has repeatedly suggested that it can be, so this is more a Trek problem than a this-book problem.… (més)
