Resurrection by Arwen Dayton
Resurrection by Arwen Dayton
2.0 out of 5 stars Very simplistic, May 24 2004
This is a fairly enjoyable book, but very predictable and simplistic. It feels like a made-directly-for-TV episode of a popular SF series (pick any you want).
All the characters are linear, no depth, no nothing, they feel like taken out of children's books.
As for the SF ideas -- the connection with ancient Egypt has been done better (see the Area 51 series), but nevertheless was still enjoyable. Other than that, there's nothing much, except some description of technologies which are not very original and do not go into very much depth.
It's actually 2 1/2 stars.

Although Kay Kenyon's books are not so original and do not have the grand epic scale of David Brin, Greg Bear or other classics, they never dissapoint. They all have interesting ideas, her writing is pleasant, her characters are for the most part veridic. I especially love the fact that none of them have the classic hollywoodian happy end; at the end, there is always the promise that on a general scale everything will turn out fine, but nevertheless the characters never achieve complete personal happiness or fulfillment. In my opinion, this is closer to what happens in real life.
This book is about the homecoming of a wandering group of people who have left Earth a long time ago in a… Read more
