    One thought on “Le Printemps d'Helliconia”

    1. I guess I am joining the chorus of voices who express frustration if not outright disappointment with this book Aldiss has written several sf novels that are among my favorites Hot House, Greybeard, The Dark Light Years and I was looking forward to this trilogy But as other reviewers tend to point out, if you glance at the reader responses to all three books, the number or respondents drops book by book Helliconia Spring, although it certainly has its fans, I found to be pretty rough going.Aldis [...]

    2. This series proves Aldiss ability at world building and that he s not just good at writing short stories and novella s Throughout this series and even this book characters come and go but the real story is that of the Planet Helliconia itself as the annual cycle of life is followed through from Spring to Winter That s a larger prospect than it sounds given that one Helliconian year is equivillent to 2500 Earth years.Human civillization rises and falls in the space of a Helliconian year when the [...]

    3. Executive Summary There were times where I enjoyed this book, but they were few and far between Just not enough for me to like overall.Full ReviewIf you look at how long it took me to read this fairly short book 26 days and how many multiple day gaps I often went between reading it, it should be no real surprise I gave this 2 stars.I found the prologue long and pretty boring, and it might be the most character development of the entire book Unfortunately after the prologue that character no long [...]

    4. The Helliconia cycle is a SF trilogy with a planet as its main character Yes, it s that epic and mind boggling in scale Heck, the prologue to the entire trilogy is a 100 page unbroken chapter.Helliconia Spring, the first of three novels in the cycle, tells the tale of a small human community as Spring comes to a world whose year lasts long enough for civilizations to rise and fall.It goes without saying that the main feature of Aldiss novel is his incredible world building In the Helliconia cycl [...]

    5. The idea is nice supposing a year was a thousand times as long But I found the book a bit too slow, and got bored I finished it, but never read Summer and Winter.

    6. Getting into this book was somewhat of a slog If I didn t know the pretense of the book I think I would have abandoned it early on, but the idea of a planet trapped in a binary star system was intriguing enough for me to keep going Hint to future readers If you don t know Kepler s Laws of motion look them up, it explains an awful lot The story follows a couple of generations of humans, trying to survive as their world begins to warm up Not much happens so don t expect a lot from the plot It s al [...]

    7. Helliconia Spring by Brian W Aldiss was a recent pick by my book club, chosen after the author recently died.The book is about a planet that orbits binary stars It has a very long orbital year, which has strange effects on the inhabitants of the planet At the start of this book, the planet is coming out of a winter cycle and moving slowly into spring There are dominant life forms that start to struggle There are cyclical plagues that thin and change the humanoid populations Civilizations rise, f [...]

    8. I bought this book five years ago, since it sounds like a really interesting idea and has neat cover art I read about 20 pages, and put it down due to lack of interest I recently picked it up again and finished it, but found myself pushing through most of it It gets a little better than the prologue, but I just didn t care too much about the people of Oldorando or even keep them straight, since their names all sound the same A few chapters could ve adequately told the story that takes several hu [...]

    9. One star because I was actually able to finish it, and one star for the cool idea I loved the science and the background information, I hated the story and found myself practically napping through most of it.

    10. J ai lu ce livre il y a bien longtemps Tellement longtemps, en fait que je ne me souviens plus de la date, ou m me de l ann e, o je l ai lu Mais tout a n a pas grand chose voir avec ce roman J ai donc choisi de le relire un moment o mon stock personnel de nouveaut s s tait puis.Le printemps d Helliconia raconte donc le d gel d un monde dont les ann es durent des dizaines de nos si cles, ce qui laisse le temps aux plantes de s adapter chacune de ces saisons, et aux tres vivants d oublier ce que l [...]

    11. This book didn t really work for me As other reviewers have pointed out the central character of this book is the planet of Hellliconia and when a planet is the focus of the novel then the resulting work is often epic in nature.This is my first reading of Aldiss and I can t help thinking that if I had read other works of his I may appreciate this In Helliconia Spring Aldiss attempts a lot The planet of Helliconia is in a binary system where it orbits one sun Batalix every four hundred days or s [...]

    12. I get what this book was going for It told the story of a civilization developing under the influence of planarity forces By telling it through the eyes of the primitive peoples it aimed to achieve a kind of biblical scope Well it was successful in one sense it was about as much fun to read as the bible The storytelling will spend years with a particular character, dwelling on one characters boring and brutal little life then unceremoniously flit past their demise and jump generations into the f [...]

    13. The bits about Earth were interesting The rest, not so much I tried I tried really hard But I just couldn t enjoy this book.

    14. Metaphorosis Reviews2 starsA world in a binary stellar system has a complex orbit with long periods of heat and cold Inhabited by humans, near humans, and other species, its population re discovers science as it emerges from each long ice age all watched by a human orbital station that shares its findings with distant Earth.There s a strong similarity among Jack Vance, Robert Silverberg, and Brian Aldiss They all use formal, sometimes stiff, language, and all describe odd, extreme characters and [...]

    15. The wiki summary of the book made it a story I was looking forward to reading, but the writing style used to tell the story failed.

    16. Simon Maynard said it best in his review Apr 16, 2009 , so I will only say Go into the book trilogy expecting the largeness of this tale Any other mindset will take away from a brilliant world that has been created.

    17. This book literally captured me Its exquisite world building, the atmosphere and everything They lure you into a trap There is way too much unneeded stuff in there, characters I cannot relate to, facts not to be cared about.So the last 200 went, slowly, towards an end I was craving, the end of nothing it appears, but at least, the end of the book.

    18. Originally published on my blog here in May 2002.The Helliconia trilogy has an immense theme In the eighties, one of Aldiss interests was the rise and fall of civilization his previous novel to Helliconia Spring, Life In The West, is about the decline of our own As his introductory note here says, Aldiss was not completely happy with the way that it turned out, and so he produced the Helliconia trilogy, taking the theme and exploring it within a science fictional context, in the genre in which h [...]

    20. As is usually the case with Aldiss, when I read, I am fascinated with the portrayal of humanity in a strange habitat than with the habitat itself This book is slow, because it is thoughtful and sensitive to the intricacy of human emotion, and it endeavors to show so much, so deeply Though it took a great deal of commitment and concentration to read, I enjoyed getting lost in it Aldiss is one of the few writers who can really show both masculine and feminine perspectives in his characters with v [...]

    21. I read the Helliconia series a couple years back As I started the first book I found it slow, sparse, but it was also enjoyable enough to keep reading The deeper I got in the series, the interested I became yet it always retained a slow, deliberate pace After finishing the series I was content, but because of the pacing of the books I wasn t blown away by them I had just finished Hyperion Endymion, so Helliconia was like hitting a brick wall after the whirl wind, world jumping my brain was use [...]

    22. World Building fascinates than any other aspect of science fiction With that in mind, Brian Aldiss has masterfully created a world both unique and internally consistent In Helliconia Spring, Brian Aldiss moves among three different generations of characters, but his story telling falls short in comparison to his world building The planet Helliconia is truly the protagonist of the story, and its great year determines the evolution of the societies detailed therein I can never quite escape the fe [...]

    23. A huge story I have just finished this first volume with two to go The invention is massive and detailed and the characters are very well drawn and believable Works on the same scale as Herbert s Dune Well worth the read Finished the series some years later after working to overcome Lyme disease Among other things, Lyme blasts your central nervous system and makes impossible to concentrate During those years I slowly worked my way through these books which, it turned out, involved bimillenial c [...]

    24. Long, detailed world constructed by Aldiss still quite imaginative, and the characters have a little diversity.For those who like a reasonable dose of philosophy religion with your SciFi this may appeal a good part of the book is about the main character Yuli s increasing involvement in a society driven by a bureaucratic religious caste, and subsequent escape from it at the end.Develops the themes of the Phagor and other humanoid races on the planet Helliconia, and towards later stages the earth [...]

    25. I don t really care for books which get you all involved with one character and then leap forward several generations and introduce you to another entirely new set Which this book did and the next two will probably do also However, once we got to the second set, I was very satisfied with Aldiss level of intimacy with his characters His ability to add depth to the world of Helliconia was wonderful.But sometimes I felt I was just missing something important there seemed to be obvious foreshadowing [...]

    26. The world is very interesting and complex He introduces it in such a way that you and understand and see the original objects and creatures that inhabit it But it doesn t have much movement toward a climax I didn t feel for the characters and it seemed like a genealogy story The rather pointless winding plot bored me as I waited for something than a succession of rulers in a changing society Getting a little than halfway through I skipped to the end to see if it was any exciting Nope More of [...]

    27. Great book in a word simply marvelous Imagine a world were the seasons don t last only three months, but thousands of years, like on the ancient Ice Ages On Earth And when the Spring comes, it brings a new oportunity for the Freyr s sons the humans to take dominance over the Batalix ones the fagors These two so dissimilar races battle for ages without really knowing the reason for that conflict But when the spring comes, it is written, it s time for the humans to prosper and the Fagor gonna be d [...]

    28. This was written in the style of a Norse Saga very little flow and weird sentence structures that day things like one day this happened and after a few days Yuli said this There was very little dialogue and what there was was just info dumping Speaking of info dumping, the first couple of chapters is basically just one huge info dump Instead of showing us the author just tells us We learn nothing of the characters other than what he tells us through info dumping, and even then it s just hugely b [...]

    29. This first book of the Helliconia Trilogy, famed for its unequaled world building it worth reading for that reason, and mostly unfortunately for that reason only The book starts with a massive about a fifth of the entire novel prologue and the subsequent chapters read like a narrative history than a novel Characters are just names or descendants of names and it s hard to care about the people in this carefully drawn world It s a bit of a slog, but the planet is worth a visit.
