    The second book in the trilogy and no where near as good as the first book Earthseed. One amazing fact I just discovered is that there is a 23 year gap between the writing of the two books! Wow! (I hope Patrick Rothfuss does not know about this. It might give him ideas). Anyway this particular book was so slow I nearly fell asleep and I doubt very much that I will be looking out for the next one.

    Wow, this review is kind of tough to write. The Seed Trilogy has so much going on, and I feel that without some background about book one, Earthseed, some who read this may be lost. To do that would require a lot of details, so check it out on GoodReads; I've provided the link to my review of Earthseed at the bottom of the post. Basically, I described Earthseed as Across the Universe meets The Hunger Games. Pretty cool, right? But don't think this book is a ripoff of those books, Earthseed origi [...]

    Audiobook from Blackstone Audio, Inc.Narrated by Amy RubinateLength: just under 9 hoursFarseed is the second book in the Seed Trilogy, the follow- up to Earthseed. I enjoyed Earthseed (my review) and looked forward to the continuation of the story.Sadly, Farseed was not nearly as good as its predecessor. Where Earthseed was a book about a spaceship raising kids, preparing them to "seed" other worlds, Farseed was a book about frontier life. The story takes place approximately 30 years after the e [...]

    I read Earthseed a while ago and almost started Farseed but it seemed almost a bit leaning toward the Lord of the Flies and I'm more into science fiction than the the whole psychology of survival of potentially degenerate societies. I finally picked it up to read and almost read it through at one sitting. This is definitely a book that you have to read carefully.As a part of the trilogy it has its position and usually number two can tend to take a dip. This novel is not all that bad and I would [...]

    Ship left a colony of humans on Home – another Earth-like planet. The initial settlement eventually split into two, with Ho’s group going to live in some caves near the sea. For awhile the two settlements continue to meet to trade, but as Ho’s settlement shrinks and he becomes more insane all contact between the two groups ceases. Several years later, three individuals from Zoheret and Aleksandr’s settlement are sent to investigate the lapse in communication. Nuy, Ho’s daughter, encoun [...]

    This is the second in the Seed Trilogy. The first is Earthseed. We pick up this installment several years later and are following the second generation since they were "seeded" on the new planet, Home. We still have the characters from the second book. The main character, Zoheret, from the last book still plays a major part, but plays a secondary character to her daughter, Leila. And although I thought the secondary characters from the last book was too much undefined, that was not the case in t [...]

    This book is about people from Earth on an alien planet. They were delivered there by the artificial intelligence that pilots an asteroid converted to an interstellar space ship.Some stuff happens to some characters, or whatever. There's tribal rivalry and people kill each other. I can't tell you how mind-numbingly insignificant it all feels, compared to the grandeur of the first book.In the end, it turns out that the young generation of humans born on this alien planet have absorbed some native [...]

    In the second book of Pamela Sargent’s Seed Trilogy, Ship has finally found a suitable world on which to deposit the seed of humanity it has been carrying. This group of youngsters was literally born on Ship from genetic material that it carried, and was raised by Ship for the express purpose of colonizing a planet.During their voyage, it was Zoheret who displayed the best leadership skills, and it is she that becomes leader of the new colony on the planet they have named Home. And it was Ho w [...]

    Farseed is one of those books that took me a while to start enjoying. I won the book through a giveaway initially had the thought that it would be terrible because it was another a teen book. And I'll be honest, it is very obviously a book directed a teens. The reading comprehension level is definitely not any higher than that - in fact, my 6 year old could read it and understand what is going on for the most part. However, it is also a very good book and makes up for the lack of depth by creat [...]

    Very boring. The idea is a good one. Earth is dead. Some of the humans created Ship to carry human "seeds" to another inhabitable planet. Ship did that. Now it has been decades since Ship left the colonizers on Home. Ho took a group of people off and now his daughter, Nuy, is wondering if her father's way is really the best way. When she encounters three people who come from the main settlement she tries to lead one back to her father with disastrous consequences. Now she is on the run with the [...]

    Farseed is slow, and much of the book seems to dissect lifestyles, beliefs and evolutionary differences between two peoples. Once a true “problem” is present to the plot, things do get a bit interesting. That being said, Sargent doesn’t end the book in a satisfying way. In fact, I was fairly confused by why various people did the things they did, and believed what they believed and some of the evolutionary differences were hard to believe given a paltry thirty year gap for them to arise. I [...]

    I had a hard time with this one. Perhaps I should not have picked it up just after reading Earthseed?This one seemed so bogged down in politics, and I finished the book still unsure of what Ho's motivations were. I just did not get him or why anyone would follow him. I cheered for Nuy, but many of her successes seemed based on luck. I also found myself disliking most of the residents of the main settlement and, in my mind, saw the settlement people vs the river people as class warfare that was s [...]

    Wavering on my star rating here - this is a very well-crafted story, and I liked it and admired the writing, but I did not find it gripping. I think part of my problem may be that I didn't read Earthseed, the prequel. As a result, I didn't fully understand who the characters were. The dialogue with Ship is a rather intriguing way to bring new readers up to speed, but it's also a bit distancing.That said, I found both Nuy and Leila believable, admirable young women, and I thought both plot and wo [...]

    This is a sequal to Earthseed, one of my favorite books as a teen. Lo and behold, there is a sequal that I didn't know about (which isn't my fault, it took her 20 years to write it! It just came out last year.). While there isn't as much draw in the second one, because it continued the story in part of the characters I fell in love with in the first one, I enjoyed it. The book takes place 20 some years after Ship leaves the young people on their new planet--they now have children and their child [...]

    Won from a giveawayThis book could have been a lot better. The change of the point of view of the two main female protagonists wasn't very fluid; some parts of the book were just rather boring, and the book shouldn't have had as much unnecessary politics in it. There was a few too many characters in the book to all keep track of, and I found myself drawn to some characters over the others, because some were more life-like and felt more real for me.However, I did enjoy reading the book, and the [...]

    book 2 in the seed trilogy. An interesting dark ya set about 20 years after some people are dropped off on a colony planet. Mostly it is about the conflict between a splinter group that is slowly dying out and the settled group which is needing to be unsettled some. There could be a lot more here and it could have been less obviously written for YA - but the characters are good. I especially like having the characters really see the other group as alien. More like a 3.5 out of 5.

    Set on the planet that the kids from the first book in this series, Earthseed, colonized, this picks up a generation later. It's just as interesting philosophically, but there's major problems with the plot and pacing and structure which made this a frustrating read, even though I was interested in several characters and really wanted to know what would happen. The problem is mainly in trying to tell several storylines, from several points of view, together, and not doing it well.

    It's the mark of an excellent story that immediately after reading the first book that I went out and bought the second book in order to keep reading. An excellent sequel and I am off to read the third book now.

    Though I loved Earthseed, I felt like this one was an inadequate sequel. We know that the two groups are going to meet, but the book spent entirely too much time leading up to the confrontation.

    I had trouble finishing it, near the end it was very predictable and I just skimmed that last 40 pages or so. I will read the last book in the trilogy now that I'm 2/3 in.

    The long-awaited 2007 sequel to the 1983 novel Earthseed. Meh. It devolved into an odd drama that lacked a real protagonist.
