    1 thought on “Children of Time

    1. Holy guacamole! This book rocked! I had a feeling I would like this book but hells bells, I had no idea how much I would love it. You have Earth that is pretty much going to pot, then goes to pot because of some stuff. Then people wake up a million years later on their ships. Well, okay not a million but still. So there is space! There is a new planet that continued to make itself from the start of terra forming many years ago < -- I don't think I spelled that right but we all know what it me [...]

    2. There's something wildly giddy welling up within me, and I blame it entirely on this book.There have been a couple of brilliant SF titles to come out this year and I would swear belong on the Hugo list, and this is yet one more. Kim Stanley Robinson's Aurora was one, as was Scott Hawkins's The Library at Mount Char, but if I had to break down the individual merits of each, I might wind up saying that this one deserves it the most. For pure SF, it hits the heights of ideas, memorable characters, [...]

    3. Smart and imaginative, highly recommended for everyone who loves Sci-Fi and not recommended for anyone with arachnophobia.Children of Time is Adrian Tchaikovsky’s first Sci-Fi and also my first experience with his work. This is a highly praised book, it won Arthur C. Clarke Award for Best Novel in 2016 and most likely, will be 5 stars read for anyone who has never read anything like it. Plus, for even more praise, the film rights to the book has also been sold to Lionsgate. It’s a great stor [...]

    4. Sympathetic spiders? Inconceivable!–I do not think that word means what you think it means–Nope, in this case, it pretty much does. It's not that I have a spider-phobia--I like to think we have a truce regarding squishing and biting--it's that something about their structure and movement speaks to a primeval instinct to run away.Children of Time popped up in friend reviews, but I'll be honest--it wasn't until I realized there were giant spiders and colony ships that I really became intrigued [...]

    5. 5ish stars. An unqualified masterpiece. This is some of the smartest, most exciting, and most imaginative fiction I've read in a long time. It's grand, expansive, and both character-driven and plot-driven.Uplifted spiders. So cool and creative. The evolution of the Portias and their clusters is endlessly compelling. The journey that the humans take over the millennia, if not as thrilling, is dramatic in its buildup to the inevitable convergence of the two groups.It chronicles the rise and fall o [...]

    6. Five stars because this puppy had me rooting for arachnids. Five stars for carefully crafted characters, humans and otherwise alike. Five stars because of the incredible, millennia- spanning plot. Five stars because of that ENDING! Not what I expected and so satisfying.

    7. 5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum/2017/06/12/Children of Time was my first novel by this author, and wow, what a way to start my initiation into the Adrian Tchaikovsky fan club! I have never read anything quite like this book before, and I have to say the praise it’s gotten has been well deserved. I just loved this.First of all we have this incredible story, which has everything in place for a space opera of the grandest proportions. Long ago, when Earth was on its last legs and [...]

    8. This is the future.This is where mankind takes its next step.This is where we become gods. Science has given mankind the tools to travel to distant stars, to terraform their planets and to play with the building blocks of life : genetics.It sounds like a dream come true, an utopian future in which everything is possible.In practice, the deployment of miraculous scientific discoveries from the laboratory to the real world is fraught with the same issues that have plagues past generations : greed, [...]

    9. Master Mage rating of 10/10'We will show them, Portia thinks. We will show them the error of their ways'Let's start by saying I have never read anything like this and I haven't been blown away by a SCI FI novel since The Martian chroniclesMy Fellow Bald Mage (Keith Brady) has been telling me to read an Adrian Tchaikovsky novel for a long time but I seem to put it off all the time, but Children of Time appeared in the Kindle sale for 99p and I thought why not, it's cheap, let's give this author a [...]

    10. I had this book on my shelf for a long time. I like scifi in generational, but especially deep space explorations of the last humans (usually on board a generational ship) are one of my favourite topics. That plus the green cover drew me in and made me buy it bac then, but it wasn't until now (a buddy-read with the group) that I finally picked it up. Had I known what was to await me between the pages I could smack myself for not reading this sooner!The story is about humanity travelling amongst [...]

    11. An absolutely brilliant and fantastically imaginative piece of science fiction. This is one of the best books I've read this year.

    12. I loved this book! It's got an arrogant and brilliant scientist (Doctor Avrana Kern), an ark ship full of desperate humans, who are a remainder of a dead Earth looking for a new planet, a deadly AI guardian/god, and an amazing bunch of spiders.I think it takes some skill for an author to get past my automatic heebie jeebie response to spiders and instead have me cheering their every little development, and worrying at their every setback. I liked the recurring use of specific individuals and the [...]

    13. I read my first Adrian Tchaikovsky book earlier this month Guns of the Dawn. It was an easy 5* for me. I decided to take this on next since the two subject matters could not be more different. While the first book made my 5* shelf this book blew me away and made my special beyond 5* shelf taking it's place among the elite books of my stack. For a book to be this great it has to tick some boxes for me. Did it elicit empathy? Check. Not only did it but it did so in a rare manner where I felt it a [...]

    14. I have really struggled with this book. Really the only science fiction I tend to like is character driven so I was up against it from the start! I've always thought that insect and deep sea creatures have much potential as horror/ monster elements in a story. The look of them close up is just as awful as anything fictitious- it's only that, in the case of insects, they're small and in the case of deep- sea creatures, far down and away, that saves us. So I was interested to read about Portia and [...]

    15. What an adventure!My, my. This one is not easy to write about, no it's not. It came out the same year that Mount Char literally MOVED me. I mean, upon finishing it, it felt like someone had picked me up, and then dropped me, that's how intense the book was for me continues to be so, still. It was also the year The Fifth Season entered my life. This book? Children of Time? It passed me by somehow until now. :)This book. It feels like reading something on a gigantic scale. By that, I refer to th [...]

    16. What a fantastic read. Truly creative. Sentient spiders anyone?Highly recommended and the best sci-fi book I've ever read.

    17. Ah, who am I kidding? I actually read this thing weeks ago. Not a fan, sorry Carol. I may elaborate further, if I ever attempt to catch up on reviews.

    18. What can you say about a book that spans eons, traverses across the galaxies, has no likeable human characters, and has a very cynical view of mankind? In my view you say "Brilliant!!" This one for me pushed all the buttons. There was a sense of wonder and creativity and empathy and social commentary and of course some humor (though sparse) and TALK about a different perspective!! I loved this!! It was packed with reminders for me as to why I gravitate towards science fiction. Frankly it's been [...]

    19. Hard science fiction = a category of science fiction characterized by an emphasis on scientific accuracy or technical detail or both. Just to be sure what are we talking about.The detailed info about Portia, the jumping spider and Scytodes, the spitting spider are as accurate as they can be, no doubt here. In fact, there is an entire chapter at the beginning with characterizations of both species, which is, after all, fascinating, but non-fiction. So, nothing new. (BTW, all this info about the s [...]

    20. Children of Time finds the last survivors of the war-ravaged human race travelling through space on an ark ship, seeking out planets that had been terraformed for human habitation by a long dead interstellar empire. Eventually they find what should be a perfect home; except it is defended by an insane AI whose scientist forbear had inadvertently uplifted the planet's spider population to sentience.From this whacked out setup (which I fully admit relies on a teensy bit of hand-waviness at the get [...]

    21. Copy from my blogSynopsisEarth was dying long ago in war and pollution. A scientific mission terraformed a couple of planets, one of them with the target to uprise monkeys in a closed environment using nanocytes. The experiment went wrong and right at the same time: The monkeys never landed, but the nanocytes formed other lifeforms on the planet – spiders, ants, and beetles. The novel follows the accelerated rise of their cultures through exemplary vignettes.In a concurrent plot, one human sta [...]

    22. Don't you love those years where you think that you have read the best books of the year already, and then in December one book comes along and BLOWS THEM ALL OUT OF THE WATER!!!! Its difficult to condense this extraordinary tale that spans thousands of years, into a single paragraph. Also, I don't want to give anything away because it will spoil it. So ill be as simple, and as vague as possible. Humans go out of the solar system to colonise other planets. Things don't exactly go to plan. There [...]

    23. An amazing novel following the evolution of a completely different sort of civilization and technology and its interactions with the last desperate elements of our own.A mad genius scientist at the pinnacle of Humanity's progression towards the stars claims the first terraformed planet for an ambitious experiment in nanotech uplift on monkeys. Just as her experiment is about to begin civilization itself implodes in an ideologically driven conflict partly over the uplift project itself. In an act [...]

    24. This was SO GOOD!!! I was expecting a decent little sci-fi but it was better that I had hoped. The synopsis almost makes it sound like a bit of a horror story but it wasn't. Not even closeunless you're afraid of spiders. In fact, the synopsis doesn't do it any justice. Frankly, neither will I but I'll try.This story is somewhat long at around 600 pages but I think every page needs to be there. It begins by giving you the set-up, breaks it into two different storylines, then brings them both toge [...]

    25. excellent stuff on par with the author's superb Shadows of the Apt decalogy; obviously there are spiders as main characters (and ants, beetles and the like around) and the rise of their civilization that comprises one of the two strands of the novel is superb - the idea of a civilization that rises fast in evolutionary terms due to various factors is of course not original (the late R. Forward had a novel set on a neutron star, the Orthogonal trilogy of G. Egan is in the same vein etc) but here [...]

    26. “Sometimes, all it takes to crack a problem is a new perspective.” Funny how a book registers in your literary radar, only to be left to the side, becoming one of the hundreds of titles vying for your attention, and finally one day being picked up on a whim. And oh my - why on earth did I wait so long to read this?!Tchaikovsky gives us something totally mind-blowing, charting two races bent on survival. On one side you have the dregs of humanity, stuffed in a generation ship, searching for a [...]

    27. A fun read with Bookish Buddies! 3.5 stars~Its quite a long story, which is not a bad thing but I did have my ups and downs with it. The plot is seperated where you follow the last of humankind in space and on a experimental planet the creatures that were 'planted' there and a virus that was supposed to be for monkeys.Large amount of time passes where you follow the creatures their intellectual development and here things were extremely intriguing but also bland/boring at other times. Too much, [...]

    28. Thanks to my GR friends, Monica, Gary, Scott Hitchcock, Paul O’Neill, and Carol. Your enthusiasm compelled me to start this wonderful (in its most literal sense) book.Here are some of the reasons that I found it so enthralling:The plot itself is both disconcerting and brilliant in the way it blends three separate story lines. The time frame for this saga is massive with centuries rolling by as if they were minutes.Humans have almost destroyed themselves yet their technology, at times, attempts [...]

    29. So close to being 5 stars, I just wasn't able to connect with any of the characters quite as much as I would have liked. On a micro level, this one just didn't get there for me, but it is an excellent bookAs, on a macro level, it's about as good a sci-fi as you're likely to find. My first time experiencing Tchaikovsky and, if this a solid indicator of his writing quality I'm sure I'd enjoy his other stuff. The more I think about it, the more I'm impressed at Children of Time's ability to flip-fl [...]
