review 1: I completed the Earthseed trilogy and found all three books quite intriguing. I was really impressed with the author's creativity and imagination, and I'm not just saying that because the author is my Aunt Pam! These books address a really interesting question: if humans were to leave Earth, would the worlds we create be any better, or would we still fight wars and find ourselves in endless power struggles? I'm not sure I agree with the answer these books suggest, but how the story ends seems plausible. Whereas most trilogies I've read track the same set of characters, this trilogy tracks 3 generations. Though I felt like I didn't get to know the characters as well, it's interesting how different the values of the characters in Earthseed are from those in Farseed and e... morespecially Seed Seeker. Farseed was my favorite of the 3 books because of Nuy, one of the coolest female characters I've read about in a long time. I recommend these books to anyone who's interested in reading a more cerebral science fiction trilogy than Hunger Games. These books make you think a bit more!
review 2: We are back at Home, the planet Ship seeded. A moving light in the sky remind everyone about Ship’s promise to return. The River People lives simple agrarian lives close to the alien nature that changed them forever. The Dome Dwellers, the ‘true humans’ are dwindling and only a few mature kids and an unruly group of kids remains. They all share the legends about Ship.But they also share mistrust for the other. The light sets off a series of events that fuels their mistrust and violence threatens.The Seventeen-year-old Bian provides the POV of the River People while Safrah provides the same for the Dome Dwellers. The story is more about the travel than the objective though.It is interesting to learn the world as the characters do. None of the main characters have ever been outside their home town. The characters they meet are in general interesting and there is a progress of love affairs, quarrels, misunderstandings and new experiences.The characters are easy to relate to but I would have liked to see a bit more character development and background. Especially the unruly kids of the Dome Dwellers are a bit sketchy. This lowered my enjoyment some.Seed Seeker is a good conclusion to the Seed Trilogy and can be read alone and Pamela Sargent leaves the door open for another book in the end. less
