Inhaltsangabe

Fifteen billion years from now, Earth is a dying planet, its skies darkened by the ashes of burned-out galaxies, its molten core long cooled. The sunless planet is nearing the day of final gravitational collapse in the surrounding galaxy. Mutations and evolution have led to a great disparity of life-forms, while civilization has resorted to the primitive.
Young Deyv of the Turtle Tribe knew nothing of his world's history or its fate. He lived only to track down the wretched Yawtl who had stolen his precious Soul Egg. Joined by other victims of the same thief - the feisty Vana and the plant-man Sloosh - the group sets off across a nightmare landscape of monster-haunted jungle and wetland. Their search leads them ultimately to the jeweled wasteland of the Shemibob, an ageless being from another star who knows Earth's end is near and holds the only key to escape.

Critic Reviews

An epic adventure by the author of the award-winning Riverworld series.
"Farmer is as inventive as ever, and it is a joy to sit down with a book which is this much fun....Highly recommended." ( Science Fiction Collector)
"The story proceeds briskly, with fresh inventions on every page, while the characters' original quest grows increasingly complex. The particularly exotic settings and earthlike flora and fauna lend an atmospheric touch." ( Fantasy and Science Fiction)

Dying Earth Classic

I've been waiting for some time for a digital version of this classic, and to my surprise someone decided to publish it. I wasn't disappointed. I quite liked the narrator's voice, though the human protagonists' voices are a little bit off (e.g., the male voice always sounds gruff independent on actual mood/content). I think I could distinguish several re-recordings of small phrases, but it didn't put me off. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because there is no one in the story to identify with (which for me seems to come with the genre). Our human 'heroes' are actually pretty dumb, which fits into the setting, but there is no alternative character who could carry over.
