This story was very fun and entertaining. The writing style is very fun and light but the story also drew me into the story of the survival of beings after a nuclear war. This story was written as a basis for an animation so it was unlike most books that I have read. The heroes of the story were very well developed and engaging and their stories were outlined well in the beginning of the book. I think that this sort of writing style makes it more of a challenge for the author to develop the characters but this author did a great job. The author also had a real talent for guiding me to suspend reality and I really felt like a part of this science fiction story. If you enjoy science fiction, I would recommend this fun yet deep story.
This a novel that seems primarily written for 11-14 yr olds. It's language and construction is playful and childlike, however it's themes are large. It's story of the last survivors of a planet destroyed by nuclear war. Three robots and their creator, plus a handful of others escape from their planet and end up in Alpha-Centurai looking for an inhabitable world. The story revolves around whether they find that world (hint: only four light years from Earth), and if the same thing will happen again. Very intense novel, but I would have loved it at around 13 years old. I loved it anyway.
Glass Dawn is a book that you start loving more as you read more. Don't be put off by its slow and peaceful narrative manner in the beginning. The book starts like that because the author needs time to tell the readers about the planet Teralon and his heroes. And then the action begins. You can immediately tell that Stahla is a true Sci-Fi fan and knows how to write a story that keeps you reading. Glass Dawn has it all - a genius scientist, his loyal cyborgs with a sense of humor, space travel, a planet killed by dictatorship and nuclear war, a mad cyborg policeman, romance, pursuit and a conspiracy to blow up the Earth. Stahla has an engaging, easy to read writing style. His story line is captivating and he has a good sense of humor (the dialogues are often quite funny). Once I got reading, I didn't want to put the book down until I reached the end! What I particularly liked about this book is that it provides some food for thought, despite being a bit childish at times (don't forget that the story is the basis of an animation). There is a lot of reason behind all the madness and fun. And that's the difference between a nice story and a really good book.
