Alpha Centauri Reviews
A fun story. No romance, simply adventure and fantasy. But I can't disregard such a fascinating story. It was written to be enjoyed again and again.
''Sometimes the Shaper may take what the Warper has twisted and make from it a thing more beautiful than before. Sometimes good is better for having overcome evil.''
The title of this book and the impression it made on me has stuck with me since I first read it as a young child. The story was a little more fuzzy, but I knew it was good...and I was right! Re-reading this as an adult I can see the effects it had on my foundation as a reader. Alpha Centauri follows an unlikely hero on her quest to save a mighty race of creatures. It is a story of good and evil; courage and fear; wisdom and foolishness; selflessness and selfishness. The story examines the domino effect of individual choices on those around them and on the future.
I read this in fourth grade after my friend came up to me after starting and saying, "Oh my gosh, this book is amazing." It's been FOREVER since I've read this book, and I can't seem to find a copy of it anywhere! From the little I remember, it was a very good book. I remember the plot, just not the names of the characters.it was the first fairly big book I'd ever read, and one of the first in the fantasy genre, and MAN, it got me hooked. I just wish I could get my hands on a copy...
I remembered enjoying this book as a child and recently found a copy to give to my daughter. I was disappointed to discover that the plot was plodding and predictable and the writing stilted. Hard to read as an adult.
If you enjoyed traveling to Narnia I think you would enjoy this also.
I don't know I kept expecting something like a wrinkle in time, it didn't seem to flow very well, I !at just be to old for this book, but it was a good story!
Loved this book when I was a little girl. Whenever friends with daughters want me to recommend a good fantasy book for children reading chapter books, I also mention this one.
This is the book that got me into fantasy. Loved it then and I still quite enjoy it now
