  • My first read of Isaac Asimov s work It was a mind opening experience, for someone who hadn t read a science fiction work of a grand master level It is a stand alone novel, and it has no special distinctive idea unlike Foundation series or Robot series , but the writing style is definitely Asimov s Of course I can only say this after I ve read his other works Nowadays I reluctant to rate Asimov s fictions full 5 star because his execution in storytelling is not so good, tend to be boring in long [...]


  • 3.5 The same anarchy, the same degeneration, the same thoughtless short term thinking, all the same cultural and social disparities would continue to prevail Galaxy wide.What would there be now Galactic empires All the sins and follies graduated from one world to millions Every woe and every difficulty horribly magnified Who would be able to make sense out of a Galaxy, when no one had ever made sense out of a single world Who would learn to read the trends and foresee the future in a whole Galax [...]


  • Nemesis, Isaac Asimov Nemesis is a science fiction novel by American writer Isaac Asimov One of his later science fiction novels, it was published in 1989, three years before his death The novel is loosely related to the future history connecting several ideas from earlier and later novels, including non human intelligence, sentient planets Erythro , and rotor engines Fantastic Voyage II Destination Brain 1994 1371 332 20 1371 574 1373 1989


  • I AM NOT QUALIFIED TO WRITE THIS REVIEWBUT IN THE SPIRIT OF WEB 2.0, I LL ATTEMPT TO SPEAK AUTHORITATIVELY ON THE TOPIC.Disclaimer I didn t realize this audio version was abridged, but when I saw that there were only 4 segments and that each part was only 45 minutes long , I figured there must be some content removed.So I m the least qualified person to argue with the other reviewers who said this book was boring, with over lengthy sections of dialogue that were repetitive and pedantic.But let m [...]


  • A brand new standalone story from the grand master of science fiction must have set fandom ablaze back in 1989 but comparatively prodigious length aside this offered nothing new in the Asimov canon aside from perhaps the authors approach towards things as he faced his impending death.It s the story of Earth s early space travel, as settlers look beyond an Earth teeming with billions of unhappy people to new stars via space habitats built for a limited number in this case 60k of inhabitants A new [...]


  • This book is the ultimate distillation of every 6 or so of the fictional Asimov books I ve read great minds get together and have lengthy discussions based on what they should do based on limited knowledge, and somehow everyone unanimously agrees on the logical course of action some weird mystical thing occurs that flies in the face of science or contradicts something he s already stated as a premise in the book


  • I am sad to think that there are people who have never read Asimov who pick up this book, and then swear off all of his works because this book was SO TERRIBLE The characters are all the same, except for one or two points about them that will be drilled over and over Horrible, boring dialog If you enjoy the subject matter, great, but I really hate plots that are driven by pages and pages of conversation between two people who come to a huge revelation, some glaring fact, or solution JUST by sitt [...]


  • Nemesis, a red star threat earthlings.The usage of arevolutionary concept a superluminal spacecraft solve the problem Another concept in the book hyperspace.Future Vision, back in 1989.Just when, two days ago, a team of CERN,has announced that neutrinos sub atomic particles can travel above the speed of lightwell,somewhere Einstein must be reviewing some chapters of his Relativity Theory Review of Dec 20, 2011.


  • Solid science fiction novel from Isaac Asimov, though I would expect nothing less It could easily be inserted into his Foundation universe and act as the origin story since the plot is about humanity leaving Earth for the very first time While I wouldn t recommend this book as an introduction to the author s work, it is a standalone and could be picked up whenever Some of the characters were a little flat and the technical dialogue could drag on at times, but overall I really enjoyed the concept [...]

  • 3 stars Metaphorosis ReviewsOrbital colonies face tension with an overcrowded Earth One, with the help of a new drive system, breaks away to orbit an unusual star A teenage girl on the colony begins to develop a rapport with a local lifeform, while on Earth, her father seeks ways to find the colony and make a family again.This is one of the last of Isaac Asimov s solo novels, and I m sorry to say it s not his best It has his usual light hearted, friendly style, but it lacks the spark of ingenuit [...]


  • Nemesis un romanzo di fantascienza del 1989 scritto da Isaac Asimov Non ambientato nel suo famoso ciclo della Fondazione n in quello dei robot una storia a s stante, ma alcune citazioni lo collocano all inizio della storia futura, agli albori della colonizzazione dello spazio.Direi che in una libreria, nella mia per esempio, il libro andrebbe collocato accanto a Neanche gli Dei e La fine dell eternit , quei romanzi che sono stand alone, che si possono leggere a parte da tutto il resto, infatti n [...]


  • There s something entirely delicious about a well written piece of science fiction It goes without saying that Isaac Asimov is a good name to look under for examples, but very often with Asimov you re looking at a minimum 3 book commitment Not so in the case of Nemesis, a beautifully crafted and blissfully short jaunt into a future that not only seems possible, but invokes all the modern day science documentaries we all love to watch but will rarely admit to enjoying Nemesis is set at a time whe [...]


  • Truthfully, now all grown up, I don t appreciate Asimov the way I used to It used to be a really neat back in time to the future kind of read, where I got to see how people of the 1950 s thought things would turn out Huge computers governing our lives new social norms springing up see The Moon is A Harsh Mistress by Heinlein, or Friday by the same a view of space travel that was just like what they promised us rotating space stations that had variable gravity based on different spots on the stat [...]


  • I remember liking this book a lot when I was 12 13, I was a great Asimov and J.K Rowling fan at that time P The best points of the book, rather, the best point is character construction, though if I am to refer to Garabet Ibraileanu s Adela, which I ve been forced to read and yes, I do hold a grudge, females are always interested in such aspects For them Anna Karenina isn t exquisitely delightful in style, for them it s Anna, Dolly, Kitty, Vronsky Maybe he s right, but then science fiction was [...]


  • I like the concept of this book and some of the scientific ideas in it Space Settlements surrounding Earth have been growing and multiplying, and most of them are trying to develop ways of exploring the universe and detaching from Earth One settlement called Rotor has two discoveries which quickly send it ahead of the rest.I ll stop so I avoid spoilers, but Asimov seems to have had some difficulty bringing this particular plot to a climax There are several disputes and issues during the course o [...]


  • Asimov mentions in Nemesis s foreword that Nemesis is not in the same timeline as the Foundation, Empire and Robot series, altough he admits that he might eventually write a book that ties this one to those series Funnily enough, near the end of Forward the Foundation second book of Foundation series , R Daneel mentions that a long time ago, there was a girl on a distant system called Nemesis that had similar mental abilities I had Nemesis on the bookshelf for a long while, but once I read that [...]


  • This is a mostly escapist novel of intergalactic exploration and alien contact Asimov generally weaves a good story, and this one is full of characters who are self consciously making history Once he mentioned that he never edits his work, and this could definitely have used some editing Occasionally, mostly in the beginning, he gets pedantic and repetitious But you keep turning the pages, just so you can find out what happens.


  • Ba lang ta Vak f Evreni ne dahil olan bir eser olmad i in kitaptan ho lanmam t m ama kitab bitirdi imde kitab tam olarak Vak f Evreni ne dahil edemesemde Vak f Evreni nde cevaplanmayan baz sorular yan tlad n farketti im i in kitab ok iyi buldum.


  • Asimov is able to weave complex and engrossing stories without relying on violence He dares to imagine a future shaped not by weapons but by the ingenuity of the human mind.


  • Asimov rimane uno dei miei scrittori preferiti di science fiction ma questo romanzo non mi ha convinto del tutto e non lo ritengo al livello di quelli pi famosi appartenenti al ciclo della fondazione ed al ciclo dei robot.Il tema del romanzo interessante una stella sconosciuta, che sar battezzata Nemesis, si sta avvicinando al Sistema Solare e nel giro di 5000 anni potrebbe distruggerlo Gli scienziati della colonia spaziale Rotor scoprono il pericolo e decidono di abbandonare il sistema solare p [...]


  • I enjoyed this book, it was interesting and had some cool developments I liked Marlene, she was a very different and intriguing character The parts with Crile and Tessa were kinda boring, I skimmed those chapters, as they usually spent their time talking about stuff I didn t understand There was a lot of technical things in the book that got a little boring The whole organism thing was cool and being able to talk to Marlene, and even though the ending was good the plot was kind of anti climactic [...]




  • Published three years before the death of one of the great masters of sci fi in 1989, Nemesis is a stand alone novel Unusually for Asimov there is a strong central female character in the shape of Marlene, a plain but highly intelligent teen, who is very perceptive about what others are thinking Her character is developped as the story progressesre


  • Nella prefazione a Nemesis, Asimov dichiara e giustifica la sua scelta di scrivere un romanzo con uno stile semplice e chiaro, alla portata di tutti, per il puro gusto di raccontare una storia di fantascienza e niente pi Non so se effettivamente a causa di questo, ma Nemesis mi pare una spanna sotto gli altri grandissimi romanzi dello scrittore, che per stile, anticipazione e tematiche hanno meritato il loro giusto posto nella storia della fantascienza moderna Certo, Nemesis pur sempre un gran b [...]


  • The only interesting character in Nemesis is Marlene, the fifteen year old girl on the space station Rotor She s relatively human The start of the novel has her thinking about a cute boy, who has taken a liking to a much prettier, taller girl If this were the core story to Nemesis, and the science fiction branched off around this human situation, it would ve been great That would make it similar to I Robot, which is an incredibly grounded sci fi novel, so grounded you re not even aware that you [...]


  • Sacrilegious though it may be to say, I m actually not that huge a fan of any of the grand masters of science fiction I like their stuff, but it isn t the kind of thing I reread a dozen times and memorize and win contests about that would be Lord of the Rings I m not sure why I feel that way In Asimov s case, I typically don t like his characters, since they often are one dimensional Foundation is a classic example Tons of books, and a grand total of one appealing character In Nemesis, Earth s p [...]
