this night, history as known to humanity came to an end Supernova Era is a book from bestselling author Cixin Liu, author of award winning The Three Bodies Problem novel I ve heard a lot about him and was very excited to read some of his work, although I must admit I was a bit scared of too much complicated science in his book But in the case of Supernova Era, it is no problem at all There s not much hard science here, it slike dystopian political fiction in fact We have a dying star here, yes, but it s only the beginning of the whole story The Earth is showered by the deadly radiation from the supernova, and although at first, everything seemed fine, people soon found out about grievous consequences of this event All humankind has left then a year to live, except children under thirteen, who have higher cell regenerating abilities Is it possible to prepare children to take reign over the world in less than a year Can you expect from teenager to learn in a few months for a job his parents spend years of studies and hard work to master But nothing else could be done The adults try to introduce children into their complicated world as best as they can in given time hoping it would be enough No one could predict how the children s world would look like From the first pages, I was fascinated by this book The author has an exceptional talent to describe a tedious and complicated physical and chemical process as if it was poetry Prologue about dying star was written so beautifully I could read it all day The first half of the book, I practically devoured, waiting with the heat on my cheeks for the moment, when the adults finally leave the Earth to children How will they cope all by themselves As expected, the first hours of Supernova Era were disastrous I, as a parent of a small child, could only imagine how terrible it would be to be forced to leave my baby for other children to care for Unfortunately, the further into the book, theboring and monotonous it got It is written as an emotionless report from the beginnings of a new era, so there is loads of very detailed description of similar situations and events There re not many distinctive characters in this book It slike a tale about nations and collectives then individuals The hardest part for me to read through were the events on Antarctica I won t go into details, because I don t want to spoil the plot for you It was literary over forty pages of sophisticated descriptions, going on and on I could really do without it, or at least with only half of it But it doesn t mean I didn t like the book, because I enjoyed it immensely I like the way the author showed us that children s minds are completely different from those of adults Because of that, all the efforts people of the common era put into preparing youngster to live in their world were doomed to failure from the very beginning Of course, the vision Xicin Liu is showing us is very troubling and unsettling, but still believable I ve heard it s not the best novel from this author and considering it was written before The Three Bodies Problem it s not surprising But I don t agree it s not the best book to start with I really enjoyed it, and I ll surely want to readfrom Xicin Liu I think it could also be suitable for people who aren t entirely sci fi fans If you like books like Lord of the Flies or Handmaid s Tale you should read Supernova Era too PL Tej nocy znana ludzko ci historia dobieg a ko ca Era Supernowej to ksi ka bestsellerowego autora Cixin Liu, kt rego powie Problem trzech cia zosta a nagrodzona presti

enie wywar o na mnie to, w jak poetycki spos b autor opisuje procesy chemiczne i fizyczne zachodz ce na umieraj cej gwie dzie Co , co kojarzy mi si z nudnymi zjawiskami z podr cznika fizyki by o pokazane przepi knie, niczym najznakomitszy obraz Przez pierwsz po ow ksi ki przesz am b yskawicznie i z wypiekami na twarzy czeka am na to, co si stanie, gdy w ko cu tych doros ych zabraknie Jak dzieci sobie poradz w tej beznadziejnej sytuacji Pierwsze godziny Ery Supernowej by y straszliwe Ja, jako rodzic ma ego dziecka, mog sobie tylko wyobrazi jakbym si czu a, gdybym musia a zostawi swoj ma c reczk pod opiek innych dzieci Jednak im bardziej Era Supernowej posuwa a si do przodu, tym bardziej powie staje si monotonna Jest ona napisana w formie sprawozdania z wydarze tej ery, wi c mamy bardzo du o suchych opis w wydarze , cz sto bardzo szczeg owych i powtarzalnych Ca a akcja na Antarktydzie nic wi cej nie napisz , bo nie chc wam zdradza zbyt wielu szczeg w by a dla mnie chyba najtrudniejsza do przebrni cia Mamy tam ponad czterdzie ci stron relacji z wydarze , przedstawionych w spos b obiektywny i wyprany z emocji, i szczerze m wi c troch mnie to wym czy o Co nie znaczy, e

    Boring Extremely boring Why did I waste time reading this book The theme ia good though, I don t like it because I don t like to read children s book and this book is about the children s world only children.

    This is the first time I ve read a Chinese novel translated into English The original Chinese book was published in 2003, though it was written even earlier Thirteen years later, English readers are getting a chance to enjoy it This is a very well written and translated book.A very interesting thought experiment on how the world might be if a cataclysmic event wiped out almost all humanity This event leaves just children alive I find it hard to believe that children would think and talk the This is the first time I ve read a Chinese novel translated into English The original Chinese book was published in 2003, though it was written even earlier Thirteen years later, English readers are getting a chance to enjoy it This is a very well written and translated book.A very interesting thought experiment on how the world might be if a cataclysmic event wiped out almost all humanity This event leaves just children alive I find it hard to believe that children would think and talk the way the leader children do I almost wish this story had been told from the point of view of adult aliens observing Earth s struggle with a world run by children.The author is a pretty intense science fiction writer, going into great detail about the science he used in his story I felt my eyes glaze over a few times but right when I was about to stop reading, the story got interesting again Though, I could have a used a little less of the complicated science andstory.Although this is an extremely well written and translated book, the story never grabbed me I wasn t really invested in it and could have easily walked away at any point ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Let me begin my review by saying that I really strongly dislike The Lord of the Flies , so I was skeptical of this book I decided to give it a chance because 1 I enjoy lighter post Apocalyptic books think Station Eleven, not I Am Legend and 2 I ve heard great things about Liu s other works.I thought the concept itself was interesting a supernova causes radiation that will kill everyone over age 13 or so, but they have about a year before they ll die How will they leave the world for the Let me begin my review by saying that I really strongly dislike The Lord of the Flies , so I was skeptical of this book I decided to give it a chance because 1 I enjoy lighter post Apocalyptic books think Station Eleven, not I Am Legend and 2 I ve heard great things about Liu s other works.I thought the concept itself was interesting a supernova causes radiation that will kill everyone over age 13 or so, but they have about a year before they ll die How will they leave the world for their children, and how will the children act after the adults are gone From a storytelling perspective, I liked the approach of writing as a historian after the fact Some may think that removes suspense, but I liked the perspective it gave I also appreciated reading about how the adults and children would both react However, I think there s an entire missing story here about the teenagers over 13 ish and how teens young adults would have reacted Bottom line I feel like the book starts off really strong and intriguing but then goes downhill as it goes on I m glad I read it, and will add Liu s other books to my TBR pile, but I didn t really leave the book feeling satisfied with the plot.Thanks to Tor for providing me with an ARC at the 2019 American Library Association conference

    Great concept, but it fell apart a bit at the end, and there were odd errors in the text, like Queen Elizabeth I visiting the White House, and also a real lack of female characters who weren t in frivolous or care taking roles The writing style was also really dry, which that might have been the fault of the translation, or the original text I felt very detached from the characters and the story while reading it, like the feeling I often experience when reading something from 500 years ago.
