Descripción del producto

Luna is a gripping thriller about five corporate families caught in a bitter battle for supremacy in the harsh environment of the moon. It's very easy to die on the moon, but with its vast mineral wealth it's also easy to make your fortune.

Following the fortunes of a handful of disparate characters, from one of the lowliest workers on the moon to the heads of one of the most powerful families, LUNA provides a vast mosaic of life on this airless and terrifying new home for humanity.

This is SF that will be perfect for fans of Kim Stanley Robinson and Ken Macleod alike.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Lannisters vs House Atreides on the Moon - McDonald packs a punch 5 de diciembre de 2015
Por WiltDurkey - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Edición Kindle Compra verificada
In recent years, with Brasyl and Dervish House, McDonald's been doing near-future SF in exotic locals. Luna continues that trend and develops a unique culture, yet with plenty of familiar SF twists.

Large chunks of Luna reminded me, in a very good way, of the first Dune book. There is that tight our-family-vs-their-family paranoia, scheming and dynastic maneuvering. There is the evil nemesis equivalent to Baron Harkonnen. The knife duels. The lunar environment is quite as deadly as Dune deserts.

None of this should be thought of as a copy, Luna runs with its own ideas and has its own vibe. But Dune, part 1, was an amazing story of feudal dynastic warfare and Luna follows the same logic because that logic makes sense. Luna layers its own capitalistic/libertarian/Brazilian sensibilities onto it and channels 21st century cyberpunk. I especially liked the "familiars", basically a personal AI that seems to be pretty much a logical evolution of a smartphone/digital assistant.

Outside of family ninja-ing, the culture is richly developed, with POV characters a la GoT ("the McKenzies always pay back, three times"). Like GoT, characters are richly developed and not all will survive. There are lots of references to sex, with occasional slightly graphic scenes (btw, a fair bit of those references concern gay sex) .

One thing I did miss, slightly, is that the initial down-at-heels dystopian thread merges into the mainline fairly early on. There is a fascinating subtheme to Luna, that of oxygen and water being strictly on a use-if-you-can-pay basis and what happens to the poor who can't. But that fades when the action mostly shifts to the rich feudal families. Seems like it might pop back up in book 2.

Speaking of which, this is book 1 and while it stops at a good spot, it is not a standalone story. Really looking forward to book 2.

p.s. Ian McDonald is a really good longtime SF author, but relatively unknown. A bit like GRRM before GoT - people in the know mostly love him, but his are not the SF books you're gonna find at the airport bookstall. I don't want to pigeonhole him, but, at a guess, I think that his being from Belfast is one of the reasons he lavishes so much attention on cultural details in conflicts, certainly that has been a major theme in many of his books.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Good storytelling with abysmal editing 19 de marzo de 2016
Por DC Reader - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Pasta dura Compra verificada
While the premises of this world defy all credulity as far as any conceivable cultural evolution for an off-Earth colony, the story-telling within those premises is quite good. The author builds a world that feels gritty and real, he ramps up the tension effectively, he shows a knack for sound character development, and he's effective in making us feel the weight of human consequences from the actions and decisions in this lunar society. The wolf-pack concept is somewhat ludicrous, as is the notion that the head of the Corta family wouldn't use his doomsday option, but that's all well and fine.

Where this book really falls short, however, is the editing. Or, perhaps, the utter lack thereof. It is replete with grammatical errors, misspellings, continuity of detail flaws, and the full run of editing mistakes. There is at least one error per page, and that is inexcusable in a mass market work from the world's foremost publisher in the genre, Tor. It reads as though it wasn't edited at all before publication. The purpose of good editing is, first and foremost, to make the words disappear, so that the reader can be transported into this world. Any error jarringly brings the reader back into the present, makes the reader think about the form rather than the content. And that is a shame, because it detracts from the experience of the story.

Mr. McDonald, I salute your storytelling, but get a better editor.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas while the poor work for just their oxygen and food 25 de agosto de 2016
Por Greenrat - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Edición Kindle Compra verificada
It's 2110 and the Moon is a new Klondike, supplying Earth with helium-3, metals and tech. Five families, the Dragons, control the Moon's economy, while the poor work for just their oxygen and food. There is no law, except the contract law, and after an assassination attempt on a Corta family heir, the fragile peace could be broken at any minute.
The New Moon is being compared to A Game of Thrones a lot, but really it's very Duneish in it's nature, with its intricate social rituals, rich mix of cultures, baroque plans and assassinations. There is even a padishah-like figure, Harkonnen-like nemesis and even a Bene Gesserit subplot. Another influence that come to mind are Bexter's The Stars My Destination with it's inner-Solar system wars of ultra-rich oligarchies, and of course there is no review which does not compare McDonald's book to The Moon is a Harsh Mistress.
Sometimes there is a feeling that the book is a bit overspiced, for the sake of exoticism only (there is a scene where the a Brazilian character drinks mint tea from a samovar), and a large portion of the book is dedicated to exposition of the setting, and not the plot. But when the plot moves, it moves with fast and violent beauty, breaking the previously carefully constructed setting to pieces. You maybe would not love the exotic menagerie of the New Moon's characters, but it's definitively fascinating to observe them and root for them. Although the ending only sets the scene for the second book (which comes out in 2017), this is definitively a must-read for SF lovers

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Luna ends a long night 6 de octubre de 2015
Por Ian K. - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Edición Kindle Compra verificada
I have been reading Ian McDonald for a couple of decades now. He is an innovative thinker and a great stylist. In short, one of the best science fiction writers in my library. He is one of those writers who is so good that I reread his books several times (I want to go back and read Terminal Cafe again).

Luna is the first novel that Ian McDonald has written after his Everness young adult trilogy (Planesrunner, Be My Enemy and Empress of the Sun). Planesrunner was a good, but not great book. The series ran down from there. Empress of the Sun was a largely forgettable work. These books did not come close to showcasing McDonald's prodigious talents. Luna does.

Luna is McDonald at has best and one of the best books in his long career of writing. The world that McDonald has created is rich and complex. The characters are deeply drawn, with complex motivations and personalities.

As with most of McDonald's books, he takes ideas and expands on them. One of these is the extreme libertarian society of the moon, where all things are governed by contract and there is not law outside of contract. This is a world that repels some of the characters in the novel and gives others a chance to create a dynasty.

The weekend before I wrote this review I saw the movie The Martian based on Andy Wier's book (which I read when it first came out).

Ian McDonald's book Luna made me realize that the fascination with Mars is a romantic one. If humans are to settle space, the Moon is a much better place to start. Sending humans, as opposed to robots, to Mars is madness.

Because the Moon is closer to the Sun, there is more solar energy available. The Moon is also partially in the shadow of the Earth, so there is more protection from radiation. And the Moon is much closer. If an orbital elevator were constructed, the cost of moving material from Earth might be low enough that building settlements would be possible. The cost of sending anything to Mars is much higher.

I could write much more about the fascinating complexities of McDonald's Luna. But really, what's the point? Buy the book and read it.

So who might not like the book? There is some violence. The book contains some graphic sex of various flavors. If reading about sex bothers you, then you're not going to like the book. It is not, by the way, erotica, which is designed to titillate. The sex naturally grows out of the plot. Although I admit that one of the sex scenes was hot.

The story is complicated and some people don't enjoy complicated plots. There is a dramatis personae at the start of the book and I had to use it as a reference in a few cases. But this is not Bulgakov's Master and Margarita - the plot of Luna is clear, although convoluted in some cases.

Oh, and one other thing... The story doesn't end with this book. In fact, the book ends with a cliffhanger. McDonald has planned a sequel. But this is a feature, not a bug, since it provides the motivation to reread this fantastic book when the sequel comes out.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas The Godfather, set on the Moon 14 de noviembre de 2016
Por Steven M. Anthony - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Pasta dura Compra verificada
About five years ago I read the author’s River of Gods and was blown away by his depiction of a near future dystopian society. I followed up several years later with The Dervish House and found it to be somewhat difficult reading, with many unexplained foreign terms and cultural references. While this novel shares a few of those problems, it did at least contain a glossary and was much easier to interpret through context.

I’ve seen several reviews which label it a mixture of The Godfather, Game of Thrones and Dune, set on the Moon. I really can’t improve on that. Five predominant families (The Five Dragons) relentlessly compete for economic and political supremacy in habitats on and under the lunar surface. There are some good “hard” science fiction concepts related to the intricacies involved with life in space and on the Moon, but the gist of the novel deals with interpersonal and family dynamics.

The major characters are a part of the Brazilian Corta family and the novel is filled with Portuguese terms and cultural references, which is a little bit overdone and inconvenient. Also, this is the first book of a two part series, so don’t expect any resolution at the end of the novel.
