Yeahno I only made it about a uarter of the way into this book It is far too derivative of Starship Troopers It may get better as it goes but life is too short to spend reading shitty novels I do like when space aliens eat people though

With the human population ravaged by a series of devastating plagues the alien Chtorr arrive to. Others have than adeuately described this book so rather than repeat them I want to toss in one comment that most people will probably find pedantic in the extreme SorryThe premise of the book is that Earth's ecosphere is being remade presumably by extraterrestrial agents although neither the agents the transport and delivery systems or any other alien technology are ever found just lots and lots of alien biology A nice mystery to wrap a book aroundBut then the characters start talking about why the invasion is so successful why the alien life overwhelms the native stuff in every environment They decide based on finding that the Ch'torran thingys seem to like their light a bit red than yellow that the answer is that the aliens are from an ecosystem that's older it's got a sun that's had time to age and turn reddish something that won't happen to our sun for a long long time The alien critters have had like a billion years competition and are therefore way tougher and macho and stuffThis is bogus Evolution does not work that wayEvolutionary adaptation means adapting to local circumstances There's no generic progress toward being competitive Invasive species only succeed when they're put in an environment that's euivalent to their native habitat minus the predators and parasites that keep them in check I never saw any sign that Gerrold understands this The characters doing the speculating are supposed to be biologists and over the course of four books no one ever corrected them There's a very easy handwave Gerrold could have made at that point in the story which would be to say that all these critters must be specifically engineered to take over the Earth No impact on the story as far as I can recall But he didn't and that single fact just gets under my skin whenever I think about this book and its seuels

This is pure reading pleasure I'm currently on the book 2 and I can only say this series deserves cult status The writing is masterful so many cool and fun concepts served through unobtrusive comedy like situations and dialogues which sound so natural and non comedic like it's unbelievable There's no single moment word or line that would be a filler For me it was fun from the first to the last word It's like this fucking guy David Gerrold knows what you'll like and delivers it on a silver plate It's like he writes the book for himself and won't put anything in front of you that didn't make himself all tingly from amusement I love you David GerroldEDIT one thing Descriptions I never seen anything like it The longer they are the better they get and the they make you lose contact with your own surroundings Is that even possible I guess only in supreme pieces of literature
