    1 thought on “Bright Messengers

    1. Absolutely the worst book I've ever read in my entire life.  Arthur C. Clarke is my favorite Science Fiction writer.  He partnered with Gentry Lee on some of the Rama books, (in retrospect) to develop the characters in Rama.  I loved the Rama series.  Since this was a continuation of Rama, I had high hopes.  Some spoilers, so don't read further if you don't want to know.  The book sets a plot of good defeating evil all the way up to the end, and then the bad guy wins, the good guy loses, a [...]

    2. This is not a good book. The cover proclaims that it is "set in the Rama Universe" which itself is hardly much of an incentive for readers, since the Rama sequels were borderline insufferable. Yet, even for those that may have been fans of those books, Bright Messengers lives to disappoint. It may set in the Rama universe technically, but its actual connection to any of the events of the Rama series is limited to a few passing references. It reads like a different sci-fi story (albeit one suspic [...]

    3. This book starts off back in time approximately fourteen years or so after the events of the first Rama book. Earth's economy is collapsing. The colony on Mars is being left to fend for itself. Abandoned to the point the planetary prison is overrun and the inmates create their own wild west out of what's left. While this is happening some certain people on both planets experience extraterrestrial event, some describing them as angels or angelic visitations.On a small outpost near the Martian ice [...]

    4. Excellent Clarke based scifi read. Stimulating and imaginitive. What happened to dreaming of science and space? Oh yeah, TV.

    5. Gentry Lee does the enigmatic aliens/wow-factor thing quite well on his own, without Mr. Clarke on board. If you enjoyed the Rama stories, you'll enjoy this too.

    6. Just like the "new Rama" series before, "Bright Messengers" and "Double Full Moon Light" are actually one longer book split in two for publication purposes, so this review will be the same for both.I was a big fan of the "remastered" Rama series, so I had at least modest expectations from these two novels. Unfortunately, I couldn't be more disappointed. The setting is pretty much the same, but the characters are supremely annoying, and the plot is one huge chunk of cheese. I was rolling my eyes [...]

    7. It takes place in space, yet the characters are so one dimensional. I'll read the sequel for sake of completion, but this was a big letdown from the Rama series.

    8. When I saw this book was "set in the Rama universe", I was very excited to read it. I loved the Rama books and really wanted to continue in that same world. I was quite disappointed in the relation to the Rama books mentions the Rama spacecraft a few times, and there is a group of people called The Rama Societybut that's about all the connection there is. I went through about half of the book waiting for some major connection to appear, but it never came. I also feel that the first half of the b [...]

    9. I tend to go easy on Gentry Lee. He gets beat up by many sci-fi fans, and not without some cause. Unlike many ‘great’ authors, Lee is not adept at concealing that each of his books is built around one basic storyline that he keeps adapting to different characters and settings.One of this novel’s strong points is offering a glimpse at what a colonized Mars might look like. And coming from the boys club of engineers, Gentry Lee is inclined to give us a world where gritty people work hard, sw [...]

    10. It was several years ago when I finished this book. I do not wish to give away much of its content, I agree with some of the other reviewers that it did mention the Rama Universe but barely mentioned Rama. This was likely just to sale the book.I will say one thing. It and Double Full Moon Nights (the sequel) are a good series. The actual Rama series with Arthur C Clarke and Gentry Lee is better. The date when I finished this book is just a guess. I have not that much memory.

    11. Not a bad addition to the Rama "quadrilogy" as a book that is "set in the Rama Universe" but it's a very difficult read. I've no problem with sex in books, but in my opinion Gentry has some sort of serious abuse/sex hangup. Starts off very slow (for the first 40%) picks up becomes enjoyabled then he takes it to a very "dark" place. Don't think it's worth it. Started the second ("6th") and final book nowhI kind of dread what I'm about to read next.

    12. Great Book set in the Rama Universe. If you like the how the story is told in the Rama series, this book (two actually) continues in the same manner. These two books actually ties up a loose end in the originally Rama series but still is not needed for the story. I like it because I loved the Rama series. However, if you didn't I would skip these two (Bright Messengers and Double Full Moon Night).

    13. I got this for free in a pile of books given to me by a friend. It's okay. Rather predictable. Nowhere near as engaging as the Rama books which this and its sequel are an off-shoot of but it kept me interested to the end. I'm not sure if I want to read the sequel, Double Full Moon Night. It's not really calliing my name.

    14. I believe Gentry Lee is the brainchild behind the Rama saga (the plots are much more elaborate than the original Rendevous with Rama by Clarke).what happened to Gentry Lee? have not seen any new offering from him for quite some time. Could it be the big D?

    15. W porównaniu do wcześniejszych części cyklu Rama - słaba pozycja. Gentry Lee to na pewno nie C.Clarke

    16. Page-turner, but in the end, I felt like it never really gave me anything to think about. Maybe it'll all come together in part 2.

    17. An interesting tale that test your humanity. Not really my thing though especially after the heroine dies. This one goes bye-bye.
