Old Mars (2013)
language
English
3.5 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Picked this one up accidentally because of George R.R. Martin being connected to it. He did not, in fact, write any of the stories but the foreward he wrote was fascinating, inspiring me to give the stories a try. Some were good, some ok, a couple were really good, and one, I'm s...

review 1: 3.5 stars. There's a very interesting essay on how urban fantasy came to be by George R. R. Martin at the beginning of the collection. The stories themselves are mostly good. My favorites were: Hungry Heart by Simon R. Green; Hellbender by Laurie R. King; The Curious Affair o...

review 1: Brilliantes Buch, und wenn ich nicht momentan mit dem lästigen Schichtdienst die Nächte und Tage aus dem Lot gebracht hätte, wäre "Songs of the Dying Earth" sicherlich innerhalb weniger Tage verschlungen worden. So war es ein verstohlenes Blättern in der Dämmerung, oder das Lesen...

review 1: Finalmente! Era l'ora che succedesse qualcosa, qualcosa che davvero ti facesse pensare "Oh, che bel casino". Questo è quello che mi aspetto da questi romanzi, ma stavolta è l'unica volta (per ora) in cui sono stata soddisfatta. Fortunatamente, anche perché dopo il precedente se n...

review 1: Martin si è ripreso da quel libro straordinariamente noioso che è Feast for crows e ha deciso di sfornare un libro come si deve. L'unica cosa che lo separa dalle cinque stelline sono i pov in eccesso, perché alcuni andrebbero tagliati senza pensarci due volte. E poi...dove è Arya...

review 1: Where to begin? I barely remember (or think I remember) where this book starts. Jon or Cersei? At any rate, I wished there was more Arya - easily the most interesting narrative - and less of the Daenerys back story and more of her story. I mean do we need to hear from the Dornish...

review 1: It's been a long time since I read a short story collection. As a fan of Butcher, Gabaldon and Gaiman, how could I not try this one, especially since it's edited by George R. R. Martin? Most of the stories are very good. A couple are astonishing. Only one made me think "meh" ...

review 1: I love the idea of this project -- stories, regardless of genre, brought together on a common theme. Unfortunately, I found the majority of the stories to be rather bland. Most were solid but not inspiring, though I outright skipped a few after the first page. But I kept going be...

review 1: It's actually very difficult to accord five stars to an anthology nowadays, thanks to the obligatory duds that the editor incorporates only to appease the name-heavy crowd, and the flimsy stuff brought in only to titillate American teenagers. Fortunately, the "big daddy" of scien...

review 1: This was an excellent anthology, much better than most I have read. It starts with a foreword from George RR Martin explaining the Dawn of the urban fantasy genre. I read only some of the stories within:Death by Dahlia by C Harris - a very good vampire tale in the Sookie Stackhou...

review 1: Si finisce col botto. Non manca il colpo di scena. Martin stravolge sempre tutto, si allontana dall'abitudine di far affezionare il lettore al personaggio che sarà l'eroe che pur tra mille sofferenze, non muore mai. Qui muoiono proprio quelli che sembravano i portatori dei valori...

review 1: I picked up this book solely due to George RR Martin's name on the cover, being a significant fan of his 'Game of Thrones' series. I kept it due to the blurb sounding like a cross between X-Men and a war story and a curiosity at what a "mosaic novel" might be like. I was fascinat...

review 1: What can I say that hasn't been said already? It's geopolitics, drama, sex, violence, family drama (drama again?), and then dragons, wolves and magic! Hinted at first, at the middle and probably right until the end. Nothing is what it seems, and when it is, a very intricate web o...

review 1: The ending of the last book was very lack luster. I didn't even know that was it until I hit the character list, because I was reading electronically and it shows the length of the chapter, rather than the whole book. I would say the editing suffered in the last two books. I d...
