One thought on “Магистрала на вечността”

  1. I really don't know what to think about this one. I've become a fan of his works, but this last one, written two years before his death, neither feels like he's losing his spirit or a swan song. Instead, it feels like a rather awesome adventure through time in the far past and the far future, relying on an average joe who's doomed to see the incorporeal spirits of what may well be fourth dimensional beings who are ourselves after being seduced by aliens in the far future after losing our drive i [...]

  2. I ran across Clifford Simak years ago, and thought of him as the decent, but not compelling author of books such as Project Pope. Then, this year, I read his excellent All Flesh is Grass, and immediately went looking for more Simak to read.Unfortunately, this book is a bit uneven. Some is excellent, but then there's this book. It's not bad. Despite an array of oddities and adventures, it still has Simak's usual understated feel, and it has plenty of ideas. What it doesn't have is the feel of a c [...]

  3. Нещо чувството не е такова, каквото обикновено очаквам да ми бъде донесено от Саймък

  4. Četl jsem to už dávno a stejně jako minule i teď jsem si neskutečně užíval ten rozmanitý vesmír. Roboti, mluvící stromy, duhové bytosti, cestování v čase a všerůzní obyvatelé kosmu. Snad jen mrzí, že v tom světě člověk nemohl strávit víc času. Konec byl maličko uspěchaný.

  5. Simak's last novel. As such, it tends to revisit some of the underpinnings of his previous novel,Special Deliverance Basically, it's a tale of humankind's struggles to foil attempts by alien intelligence to manipulate the course of our evolution and destiny. In this case, the participants are from different points in time rather than from different worlds. Again, however, we find that the prevailing personas are fairly well steeped in Simak's midwestern values, mores and folkways. In some sense, [...]

  8. 2,5/5, в полза на автора 3, и то само защото бе от любимите ми фантасти като бях малък. Нищо, което да не сме чели преди. Скука.

  9. This is a book of its cultural era -- when travelling through space and time, a major female character worries about losing her pots and pans. Neither femaie character has any skill other than household, and no interest in anything but a household supporting brothers' or husband's aspirations. The good of the book is the usual nostalgic way that Simak respects the frontier American landscape. If written today this sort of one-dimensional celebration, man walks with gun, assessing play of predato [...]

  10. Обичам тази книга заради всичко, което не разбирам с разума си, но обичам толкова много със сърцето си. Все едно дали си в галактическата карта, или на сивата магистрала на вечността, или катериш дървото, което расте в небето с невидим връх и стълба около ствола - важното е да [...]

  11. Who wants to live forever? Does the promise of eternal life have a price? And how much are you willing to pay? These are the questions that we are faced with in Highway of Eternity (or Highway to Eternity), Clifford D. Simak’s last novel. What promises to be a mystery, soon evolves into an epic adventure through time and space, where our heroes will face mortal dangers and discover truths beyond their wildest imagination. Tom Boone is a reporter, Jay Corcoran is a secret agent. And they have s [...]

  12. In this, Simak’s final novel before he died two years later in 1988, there is neither a falling off of his talents or his vision, only one more entertaining testament to his abiding faith in humanity’s place in the universe. The several novels he wrote from the 1950s onward all dealt in one form or another with men and women who were given means to see that there was for humankind a wider vista, one that entailed an intelligent and sympathetic cooperation with other species, sometimes beginn [...]

  13. Jay Corcoran e Tom Boone sono amici da anni e in certe occasioni formano una coppia perfetta. Jay è un esperto nel raccogliere informazioni su chiunque, e Tom sa girare dietro gli angoli anche quando non ci sono. La scoperta di una stanza che non esiste sarà solo il punto di partenza ideale per un viaggio destinato a scaraventare i due amici in un'avventura ambientata nel più lontano passato e nel più remoto futuro. Incontreranno così una strana famiglia di esiliati che include il bizzarro [...]

  14. Simak's style and pace are quite engaging. The book had an episodic feel at times, like short stories strung together. Many of those episodes were trippy and surprising, in the vein of Phillip K. Dick. Perhaps because the book featured so many wildly imaginative concepts, there was no chance whatsoever of a satisfying ending that would bring everything together. The ending, as it turned out, was an attempt to tie everything together and to explain away all the coincidences. In doing so, the expl [...]

  15. Jay Corcoran junto a su compañero Tom Boone buscan a un extraño sujeto, la pista los lleva a un viejo hotel el cual va ser dinamitado. al momento de explotar el hotel, Boone "dobla una esquina" una habilidad que le permite "Saltar espacio y tiempo" en situaciones de vida y muerte. Así llegan a Hopkins Acre, una burbuja de tiempo, donde se conocen a la "familia" un grupo de refugiados que se esconden de unos alienigenas llamados los "infinitos" quienes han convencido a la humanidad de dejar su [...]

  16. Al abrir este libro sabía que partía de un listón muy alto, porque "Estación de tránsito" es uno de mis libros favoritos. No tenía otras referencias del mismo autor y por eso me decidí por La autopista de la Eternidad. Me ha decepcionado, no alcanza el nivel de su obra maestra: parece escrita en los años cincuenta pero de hecho es el último libro de Simak y publicado en los ochenta. Ni los personajes ni el argumento han logrado engancharme.

  17. Classic SF, and I really quite enjoyed it, but there seems to be this tendency / style in a bunch of earlier SF to be very intellectual and esoteric at the expense of actually telling a story of any sort. So I liked the characters, and the ideas that he plays with, but there's an awful lot of "d then we went somewhere else weird and inexplicable" tied up with a bit of Alien Ex Machina at the end.

  18. За романи като "Магистрала на вечността" може да се каже само "класика"за Клифърд Саймък също. Изключително елегантната фабула, следваща най-добрите традиции на научната фантастика, ни пренася във вдъхновяващ свят, наподобяващ на "Алиса в страната на чудесата" на Карол. Задъ [...]

  19. Simak's favourite themes are present in this novel, the connection between man and beast, man and robot and man and the rest of the universe. Two men get caught up in the drama of human refugees who are hiding against alien missionaries who wish to convert the entire population of human beings into incorporeal intelligences.

  20. This is a really enjoyable book. I read it in two sittings and was intrigued. A group of people, mostly relatives, take a trip through space and time to end up in "Galactic Center". Each chapter is in the voice of a different person of the group. There are surprises and a goodly amount of "ETs".

  21. Although this is only my 3rd Clifford Simak story, I bet that if I were to search around, it is probably considered either one of his best or very best. Simply fantastic. I'm going to be thinking about this story for years to come.

  22. I read this book as a teenagermembered it vaguely, but wanted to re-read it. It was a good reada little bit forcedd the sudden wrap-up at the end makes it feel like Simak ran out of ideas and just closed the bookbut still a fun read.

  23. I don't know if the book itself wasn't so great, or if more generally I've grown out of the Sci-Fi classics that used to captivate me as a teenager. Whatever the reason, I found most of the book fairly boring, and the ending only moderately redeeming

  24. A very curious read with lots of ideas, but I thought this is more philosophy than science fiction. At times the plot was developing quite slowly. Still, I would recommend reading it, as it offers an interesting viewpoint.

  25. When a client disappears from his hotel room Jay Corcoran discovers an invisible box on the side of the room. He and a friend enter and are transported to another time and place where they encounter aliens. The aliens are transforming humans into incorporeal forms to give them immortality.

  26. Саймък винаги ми е бил малко странен и тази книга не прави изключение но какво да се прави. Иначе историята е хубава
