    1. In the history of the science fiction novel, there have been any number of depictions of invaders from other worlds trying to conquer good ol' Mother Earth, be it with brute force and death rays (as in H.G. Wells' seminal novel of 1898, "The War of the Worlds") or more insidiously (as in Jack Finney's 1955 masterpiece of paranoia, "Invasion of the Body Snatchers"). But nowhere, I suspect, has the reader ever been presented with a takeover attempt akin to the one in Clifford D. Simak's "They Walk [...]

    2. Клифърд Саймък преоткривам с всяка следваща негова (пре)прочетена книга.Стилът му тук за пореден път е нещо средно между социална фантастика и чандлъров пълп. Изключителна любим коктейл, изключително добре приготвен.В историята има всичко - симпатичен репортер/детектив, д [...]

    3. Good idea. The rest, not so The author even present the most obvious soultion to the main characters problem. It is not how the book ends though. (The aliens say they do everything legally, but the money they use is not legal. They are counterfeit. Just tell that to the aliens, and they have to give up! or find another way. Could have been a nice turn in the book)

    4. First draft of review:I have tried to start this book review in so many ways, trying to be witty or funny, but I’ll have to write it as honestly as I can because the book itself is one, long punch-line. I picked it up about a month or two ago, intrigued by the cigarette burns and yellowed pages that are red on edges, popular with old science fiction books. On the cover, there are a myriad of balls seemingly invading a road (they don’t stray onto the lawns of what looks to be an English count [...]

    5. "There are some ideas so monstrous, so perverted, so outrageous that one's mind must take a little time to become accustomed to them. And one of these ideas is that anyone should even think of trying to buy up the Earth. Conquer it -- most certainly, for that is an old and fine and traditional idea Destroy it -- that also is understandable But buying it was unthinkable."A hard-drinking newspaperman is the first person to discover a shocking scheme: Earth is being invaded by alien realtors, who a [...]

    6. After several mediocre Simak book it was nice to be able to read one that reminded me why I liked him in the first place.This was great because it was a story about an alien invasion, but not a story about aliens with a military invasion but an economic one. An economic one which targeted the idea of ownership of property. It was a fantastic idea and told in the style of a 40s or 50s pulp adventure. The main character was a hard drinking newspaper man, and lived in that world and then thrown int [...]

    7. Classic science fiction book that is creepily relevant today. The book features a newspaper reporter who discovers aliens have bought the Earth (legally) out from under mankind, therefore ending mankind. While I see no evidence aliens have done this, we currently have an economic system in place that rewards greed and psychopathy. The toll this is taking on Earth is high enough that I worry that the end of mankind may come by our own hand. And I am REALLY not forward to when the globalists glare [...]

    8. Parker Graves, a journalist for a mid-sized newspaper in just such a city, stumbles late one night almost in a bizarre case: Prior to his apartment door someone has dug a hole and hid a animal trapping therein. As Graves wants to verify the installation, the case folds into a ball, rolling out of the house and disappear.Graves does not doubt his sanity, but can not provide evidence of his experience. He is silent, until he noticed other oddities: One equipped with endless funds dummy corporation [...]

    9. I'm a big Simak fan and I'm surprised I missed this one. I'm sure Simak had his tongue at least slightly in his cheek when he wrote this and the results are terrific. When is the last time you read an alien invasion story where the villains are realtors shaped like bowling balls with a talking dog for a competitor. I'm not sure there are many writers who could have written an acceptable story based on those plot elements instead of a great story the way Simak has. I almost forgot the part about [...]

    10. 4 stars from Sandy, read the full review at FANTASY LITERATUREDisclaimer: just so you know, some of the books we review are received free from publishersIn the history of the science fiction novel, there have been any number of depictions of invaders from other worlds trying to conquer good ol’ Mother Earth, be it with brute force and death rays (as in H.G. Wells’ seminal novel of 1898, The War of the Worlds) or more insidiously (as in Jack Finney’s 1955 masterpiece of paranoia, Invasion o [...]

    11. It is a really interesting vision of alien invasion!Also reading this book was easier than the other ones that I've already read. Strongly reccomend!

    12. A classic that really pulls you into the setting time & place. Archaic language and attitudes that don't seem out of place as you're reading because of the immersion

    13. Sometimes you want to re-read a book where your good ordinary man (or a woman) get's things miraculously right mostly just by being who they are and all ends well. Among other things that I liked about this one (this time around) was the moment Parker eventually sat down at his desk and wrote the headline story of the century. I enjoyed the comforting mix of daily life's worries and an imminent danger of the global scale. Parker's intuition, of course, is truly a miraculous thing indeed, but it' [...]

    14. One of the weaker efforts by an author whom I enjoyed reading starting as a kid in the 60s. This is native Wisconsinite Clifford Simak (1904-1988 ) who started writing in the 30s and wrote a great number of SF novels and short stories through the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Not one of the greats of SF like Asimov, Clarke, Bradbury, Farmer, Heinlein and some others who were his contemporaries, Simak became best known for his many stories making use of a peaceful ( and isolated ) rural Wisconsin setting wi [...]

    15. Chi è il proprietario "legale" della Terra? E se non siamo noi esseri umani, qualcuno prima o poi non verrà a sfrattarci? Un'invasione dallo spazio potrebbe risolvere benissimo la crisi degli alloggi, soprattutto per gli invasori Da queste imbarazzanti premesse prende il via il classico e movimentato romanzo di Simak, dove si dimostra come la sempre più difficile situazione in cui si trovano gli abitanti delle moderne metropoli possa avere, in realtà, un'origine extraterrestre. Sfere volanti [...]

    16. Custer avrebbe detto: non esiste l'extraterrestre buono o cattivo. In effetti qui esiste solo l'alieno immobiliarista. L'intuizione geniale di associare brame di conquista planetaria con l'accumulazione sfrenata in senso capitalista non viene sprecata anche perché Simak ci mette parecchio senso dell'umorismo. Non è banale nemmeno il finale che strizza tra l'altro l'occhio al noir alla Mike Hammer.

    17. A novel that seems to have come in two parts. In the first, Simak does a masterful job of tension. suspense, and even horror. Scared me silly. However, after some reveals, the novel becomes a little silly. Conquest by bizarre aliens via economic starvation. meh But there's really nothing like that first half, before we know what's going on!!

    18. Entertaining and amusing. But a little outdated and old-fashioned for the times; which I feel like I should never feel like a sci-fi novel feels old-fashioned. I feel like they should always seem futuristic. I guess that's where my disappointment comes from.

    19. Minu meelest parim Simaki lugu. Miski, mis kättis oma veereva jälje, kui ma teismeline olin ja mida ma iga mõne aasta tagant uue pilguga üle loen. Iga kord on isemoodi detailid ja välja joonistuvad jooned

    20. One of the best cases of the conspiracy theory - an eerie recount of the alien invasion which started by taking over industry and economics on the Earth in a quite unconventional fashion.
