    SUMMARY ✓ Coming Home Coming HomeThe Alex Benedict books are always hit or miss for me This one is a miss but it's still very much worth reading if you're a fan of the series It wasn't incredible especially following 'Firebird' which was definitely a high point along with 'A Talent for War' and 'Seeker'Storywise it's a direct co

    SUMMARY ✓ Coming Home Coming HomeThis series continues to be a solid and consistent read There are several plotlines going on simultaneously with one picking up on the spaceship rescues from those outside of time including relationship angst for Chase and also the delightful return to SolOf course a return to the Earth and our solar system is roughly on par to returning to Sumeria a few thousand years from now to try and figure out from scratch what those people were likeIt's really a shame that humanity had a breakdown about 5k years go and anything that wasn't written in stone was lost or else this little job of trying to figure out what a cell phone is or how the cradle of civilization had gotten to the moon in the first place would have been a much easi

    SUMMARY ✓ Coming Home Coming HomeI have never read a Clive Cussler book It's just not my normal sort of fiction although I have nothing in particular against it Reading Jack McDevitt's Coming Home though I kept thinking that this book was an awful lot like what I would expect a Clive Cussler book to be just set in the future with space hopping treasure hunters and antiuarians instead of being bounded by the confines of the EarthNote The rest of this review has been withheld due to the changes in Goodreads policy and enfor

    SUMMARY ✓ Coming Home Coming HomeI've said many times often in reviews on Goodreadscom that a day with a bad McDevitt novel beats a day with no McDevitt novel whatsoever The last two or three Alex Benedict novels haven't been bad exactly but they have struck me as increasingly repetitive COMING HOME follows closely on the heels of FIREBIRD and the two share plot elements particularly about the d

    SUMMARY ✓ Coming Home Coming Homereviewsmetaphorosiscom 25 starsAntiuarians Chase Kolpath and Alex Benedict search out lost space age artifacts and participate in an attempted rescue of a spaceliner trapped in a spacetime warp In reviewing the preuel to this book I said I feared the series was growing tired Coming Home is unfortunate proof of that suggestion The prose is good in some places clumsy and repetitive in others The series has never been based on action and adventure but this book overdoes the dry descriptions of past excitement I kept wishing I were reading the book about those

    SUMMARY ✓ Coming Home Coming HomeJack McDevitt books especially the Alex BenedictChase Kolpath novels tend to be books that when they are released I put down whatever else I'm reading to read the new one And I did so with this one Overall it was OK It tied up some things from the first book indeed that set the whole series in motion but overall it felt like a shaggy dog story A well written shaggy dog story but a shaggy dog story In fact it almost seemed like it would have been better as a novella or two novellas each dealing with one of the plots And Chase seemed kinda dumb in this one

    SUMMARY ✓ Coming Home Coming HomeDirect suite of Firebird Coming Home is a disappointing novel The subplot of the book an investigation about an archaeologist who has suddenly abandoned his research is very dull Any reader with a minimum of experience in detective novels is able to guess the solution of the plot uite uicklyThis narrative thread is only a pretext for visiting McDevitt's future and in particular that of the Earth This is far from the strong point of the author his universe is neither exciting nor convincing The main plot that of the rescue of Capella occupies only the beginning and the end of the novel it is about the only interesting thing in the book even if the author has already done much betterThis is not the first time McDevitt has written a boring novel because of a weak plot The Mutes the great aliens of this series are again almost completely absent from the bookAs incons

    SUMMARY ✓ Coming Home Coming HomeI read this book because it was a nominee for the Nebula award for best novel although it didn't win It's the third or fourth Alex Benedict novel I've read and I really don't understand themThe premise of these novels is kind of Indiana Jones in the 15th millennium Alex Benedict goes around the galaxy recovering valuable historical artifacts to sell to private buyers But I'm always very very confused by the temporal scope the stories are set 13000 years in the future but the people and culture and politics and society are vanilla 20th centu
