Nightfall de Isaac Asimov (1990)

    Los robots del amanecer de Isaac Asimov (LE.Draqonoviicht)
    LE.Draqonoviicht: Both books do a great job, in their own ways, of taking the reader to places / alter-realities where whet is 'common-form'. for us, is not the standard for those who live where these books will take you.

El planeta Kalgash está al borde del caos, pero sólo unas pocas personas se han dado cuenta. Kalgash conoce únicamente la luz diurna perpetua, pues durante más de dos milenios la combinación de sus seis soles ha iluminado el cielo. Sin embargo, ahora empieza a reinar la oscuridad. Pronto se pondrán todos los soles, y el terrible esplendor del anochecer desencadenará una locura que marcará el fin de la civilización.

This book was SO GOOD. The way the plot built up to the eclipse was done expertly. I was invested in the characters and story pretty much immediately. I adored the different approaches to the inevitability of the eclipse: not just astronomy, but psychology, archaeology, and media. My favorite part was the way the writing weaved those approaches together into a delicious, slowly growing tension to that moment of the eclipse itself. The tension broke after the eclipse, obviously, but it built again slightly in the aftermath to an engaging conclusion. At times, especially during and after the eclipse, the book had significant horror elements. The effects on a species of discovering that the universe is far more vast than they ever could have imagined was believable, terrifying, and thoroughly explored. Highly recommend. ( )

A fascinating premise, and the book started well enough. I was, in fact, really into it. However, my ability to suspend disbelief fell apart completely at the halfway point. First of all, they have electric lighting. Initially, I assumed they'd never developed it given their unique situation, but no, they did. It's spelled right out that all they have to do is flip a switch and, voilà, light. That, however, only cracked the fantasy for me. What yanked me out completely is that eclipses only happen on one small portion of a planet at a time. Once I saw those problems, the whole universe fell apart for me, and I stopped at page 262 because it was all just too incredible. ( )

This was a very disappointing read. Scifi by Asimov should be a safe bet, but this has been cobbled together. The original short story was written by Asimov in 1941 and this book length adaptation was published in 1990. I have the strong feeling that the book was written by Silverberg alone, but Asimov's name was retained because it is his original idea. And for marketing purposes. I doubt I would have read this had it not been for the Asimov name.
After finishing the book, I found the original short story and read that. The short story is good - tightly written, creative, and leaving plenty for the reader to imagine.
The book length treatment is different. I found it plodding and predictable. It took all the mystery and suspense away. And the greater length exposed all the potential flaws in the story line, every one of them, and did nothing to address them. What a shame. ( )

Kalgash is a world with six suns: Onos (the largest and closest), Trey/Patru (binary stars) farther away, Siitha/Tarno (binary stars) also farther away, and Dovim (small and farther still). At any one time two-four suns are in the sky resulting in constant daylight. The Kalgashians have never experienced darkness so when astronomers discover a hidden planetary body the size of Kalgash will cause an eclipse, they are concerned about the effect total darkness for half a day will have on Kalgashians. The results are beyond their worst imaginings. The science behind the eclipse is slim at best, and conversation makes up the majority of the book but that’s fine. It’s a decent enough story telling.

This is an expansion (co-authored by Robert Silverberg) of Asimov's original short story. It should not be combined with "Nightfall and Other Stories", a collection including the original story and several others. Additionally there is a book, "Nightfall" by Asimov that is a compendium of the books "Nightfall One" and "Nightfall Two" that should not be combined into this work.
