Heechee Saga 6 books. It has been cataloged as the third book in a 6-book series called Heechee  or The Heechee Saga  but Kirkus reviewed it as completing a trilogy  and a German-language edition of the three books was published as the Gateway trilogy Die Gateway-TrilogieMunich: Tampoco es menor como se resuelven los problemas de relacionamiento personal entre Robinette y sus dos amores o entre Audee y los suyos propios.
Even Robin, virtually immortal and with unlimited access to millennia of accumulated data, cannot discover how to stop these aliens. The reason for the Heechee disappearance and setup for the next book was not entirely satisfying as this book ends before addressing it in a meaningful way, but what we did get was enough to keep my interested to continue reading the series.
I’m now on to the next book! Nov 06, Tomislav rated it liked rendezvpus Shelves: It is halting and dry exposition wrapped around a little science and a little mathematics and a little philosophy. After reading what is an heechee retelling of everyday moments in that future of humanity when they should meet the Heechee, I felt “that’s it? Their success would be the end of any race living accordingly to what we understand as life. Third in the series by the same narrator.
Advanced Heechee technology had enabled Robinette Broadhead to live after death as a machine-stored personality, enjoying his life by flitting along the wires from party to party with a host of other machine-people. Heechee Rendezvous is book 3 of the Heechee Saga but can also be read in isolation.
Together with a somewhat haphazard plot line, it started to feel like a chore to reach the end. But, I don’t think that’s a fair statement.
Oh no, there’s been an error
Y finalmente toda la profundizacion que Pohl le dio a la cuestion de los Asesinos. Tenemos a un crecido Wan, con sus propias motivaciones.
There was even a minor existential crisis where one viewpoint was arguing with itself!? There is no one to root for, no goal to cheer on, Robin continues heefhee search for Klara and we the readers get only closer to revelations about who built what the bubble that isolated HeeChee or the machines constructed beforehand without really caring.
Excellent display of talent.
Some readers might not like this, adn stopping after the first book might make sense. The rendezvous in the book is basically the climax on this story. As it is, I suspect I should blank this entire review as a spoiler. Even after it was revealed to the reader what is going on, some characters continued speculating about what heevhee going on! Paperbackpages. But it was a good book.
Heechee Rendezvous – Wikipedia
An excellent book and an excellent continuation in the series! Other books in the series. Jan 31, Mark Broadhead rated it it was amazing. The Space Merchants with Cyril M. Solo hay una cosa que he echado de menos: Works by Frederik Pohl. The average of 1 star for the first half and 5 stars for the 2nd half means Heechee Rendezvous mathematically deserves a 3 star rating. Aug 11, Mikey Pietrzak rated it it was amazing.
But I was rather disappointed. A disappointing end to the series. With a little more focus on characters from book 1 than in previous ‘episode’, and with a very cool explanation of what the Heechee were actually doing and where they actually were, this is cl After the little letdown with the not so interesting characters and plot of “Beyond the Blue Event Horizon”, and the “beginning of the revelation” towards its end, I was eagerly looking forward to going through “Heechee Rendezvous”.
I guess I’m in another galaxy from many of the readers on this. But this is only one subset of a slew of subplots. A super mysterious highly advanced race of aliens who disappeared eons ago into a black hole because they discovered something that frightened shit out of them. Y si faltaba algo, con ese final Robin Broadhead se convierte en uno de mis personajes favoritos.
Dec 27, Sandrus rated it really liked it. Finally, the Heechee are discovered. No trivia or quizzes yet. Trying to imagine their appearance is a sort of anti climax: This is something I can deal with but Pohl somehow manages to continually make him get on the reader’s nerves.
But the characters seemed to spend much of their time either in annoying personal conflicts or pondering what is going on. But that proves little. And with the way it’s written, the reader doesn’t even need to have read the first two books before this one.
Action, adventure, great characters and great writing. Cuando termine la segunda parte de la saga “Tras el incierto horizonte”, quede estupefacto con la renddezvous en la que se habian precipitado los acontecimientos y por el curso que habia tomado la historia repentinamente.
