Terraforming Earth

Jack Williamson
Terraforming Earth Cover

Interesting Concept, Weak Characterization


The story of Terraforming Earth felt almost dreamlike, with its surreal landscapes, ephemeral repeating clone generations, and rapidly passing centuries. The cultures and ecosystems that sprang up after the end of the human race reminded me of the science fiction of the earlier 20th century. While I liked how the effects of the clones upbringing was somewhat addressed, I did not think that the small group of survivors made a very compelling human canvas for the story. There was also a lot of repetition in the story, which might be a result of having been serialized before it was published as a novel. I am curious to read some of Williamson's older work, to see how it compares to Terraforming Earth in style.
