Silverberg – Anochecer
As a result nightflal its unique circumstances, nightfall only comes once every plus years. Society has only recently advanced to the point where it is able to excavate the ruins of prior nightfalls and predict the coming nightfall.
An ancient religion is ahead of science in that it is able to predict nightfall from its records. Psychology is at a loss, as dem I did not finish this book simply because I wasn’t in the mood for a thoughtful study of what nightfall would mean to a planet with 6 suns.
Psychology is at a loss, as demonstrated by a local theme park attraction which is nothing more than a tunnel that keeps riders in darkness for 15 minutes, resulting in several breakdowns.
I was impressed by what I listened to of this book, but was not in the proper mood to truly enjoy it.
Plus there seemed to be obvious gaps in the story, most notably, where did the society get sufficient resources to advance since they apparently never mined them or used tunnels for transportation or underground bunkers for warfare, or submarines, etc.
Book was good, just too slowly paced for my mood at this time. Jul 04, Elena B. There just isn’t any place in the universe you could put a million sun’s – unless they touch one another. Supposing anocheceg have an universe in which there was a planet wit “But if it turns out that four hours pass – and another four – and nothing happens? Supposing you have an universe in which there was a planet with only one sun [ It wouldn’t get enough heat and light, and if it rotated there would be total Darkness half of each day.
You couldn’t expect life – which is fundamentally dependent upon light – to develop under those conditions.
The idea of a people so utterly terrified of darkness, who live their entire lives in sunlight and to whom the stars and darkness are an inconceivable horror, was novel and fun. The scattered ideas about belief and the unknown and intelligence were fun, too, although the anti-religion sentiment was a little heavy. No need to destroy civilisation. A bleak thought experiment on what happens when nights are these almost mythical occurences, when the sky is lit up with millions of stars, and when one finds out the actual size of the universe.
