  1. This was an unexpected yet welcome find at the bookstore, since I had never heard of this book before, and I ve wanted to read George R R Martin books that AREN T from A Song of Ice and Fire Not familiar with Lisa Tuttle s writing, so I can t tell who influenced which ideas events characters, but Martin s plot twisting ingenuity definitely shines through The story is not an ordinary take on flying humans Usually these stories place people up in the clouds somehow, in floating islands or castles [...]


  2. An early 1980s collaboration between a now famous author and a less famous one, Windhaven demonstrates that the young George R.R Martin had talent for world building and character driven storytelling While not as sprawling and a whole lot less violent than A Game of Thrones, it ll probably appeal to anyone who liked his family friendly Hedge Knight novella.The story takes place on a distant, windswept ocean world, where humans lost advanced technology generations ago, but were able to cannibali [...]


  3. Pa ka imo pre 3.5 5Ovde imamo lepo ispri anu pri u sme tenu u daleku budu nost na drugaj planeti prikazanu kroz ivot leta a Sama pri a je podeljena u tri lepe celine isto da se zaobi e dosadan period kada se ne de ava ni ta zna ajno emu sam uvek zahvalan Tempo je dobar, uvek se ne to de ava, imamo par interesantnih likova ali je na alost ve ina dosta jednodimenzionalna ta drugo re i sem knjiga je zabavna ali samo pisanje nije previ e ambiciozno ili epsko Ali nema ni smrti na svakom koraku to je [...]


  4. Hac a tiempo que un libro no me gustaba tanto Qu personajes, qu historia, qu bien llevado todo No s si Martin aqu a n estaba joven y optimista, o es cosa de Tuttle, pero no tiene nada que ver con el enfoque de Canci n de Hielo y Fuego Aqu s , pasan cosas malas, hay gente mala, pero siempre queda una esperanza de que las cosas pueden salir bien ste es el tipo de realismo que quiero leer.Probablemente es el libro de Martin que m s me ha gustado hasta el momento, y como de Tuttle no he le do nada m [...]


  5. Es un 3.5 5 pero lo dejo en tres estrellas porque cuatro me parece excesivo.Esta novela de ciencia ficci n tiene todo para triunfar, una ambientaci n sobresaliente, una trama que va de menos a m s y el estilo narrativo tan adictivo de Martin Entonces por qu 3 estrellas solo Pues porque es irregular, demasiado, tiene momentos muy buenos y otros mejorables Adem s, los personajes no est n a la altura de lo que Martin nos tiene acostumbrados en sus otras obras y encima el autor norteamericano no apr [...]


  6. Windhaven is a good read but not one that got a lot traction for me I listened to the audio book and narrator did good job bringing the story to life.The planet Windhaven is place where star travelers crash landed Salvaged from the ship were the materials to make wings so that some of the population could fly on the planet s strong and almost never ending winds Eventually, the planet s islands were colonized and vital messages are carried by flyers to the people who inhabit the islands These peo [...]


  7. This fantasy appears to me to be in the tradition of Ursula Leguin, replete with a coming of age story bound up with social development issues, moral choices, and fable like messages The descendents of marooned starfarers inhabit a world of many small islands Aside from sailing in an ocean with dangerous sea monsters, the only link between islands is via a cadre of flyers who use wings made of metal struts and special indestructible cloth left over from the ancestors The aristocracy of flyers, w [...]


  8. This was my first George R.R Martin book and it definitely won t be the last, I assure you.Windhaven is relatively short for the average fantasy book and yet I was SO connected, so enthralled with the characters, the world, the systemEVERYTHING This is the type of fantasy novel I yearn for when I think of the genre What sticks in mind is the way the authors deal with our protaginist Maris She s quite immature to begin with which goes hand in hand with her age and we watch her grow over the cours [...]


  9. Maris has got to be one of the most amazing female protagonists in the history of this genre She is certainly what I think about when I think about a strong female lead Her personal development during the course of this novel is nothing short of pure perfection I mean Maris is an awe inspiring woman and yet she feels very real during every step of the way She is wonderfully written and totally convincing She starts off as a young lady that is determined to change the world she lives in and what [...]


  10. It was an interesting book with a unique world, but although original I did find it lacking It never had a clear direction other than recounting the protagonist s life and no real antagonist other thab tradition and society Maybe some people would like this but it made me feel detached from the story.


  11. Bem acabeio Mr Martin costuma deixar me sem palavras mas pelos motivros contr rios N o foi mau, mas esteve longe de ser fant stico N o um enredo empolgante mas tinha bases para isso S o poucas personagens, e com excep o da principal Maris n o foram muito aprofundadas e a hist ria patinou ao longo de mais de 300 p ginas sem sofrer o impulso que a poderia ter tornado extrordin ria E foi pena, porque j se conhece a capacidade do autor Por vezes, em algumas descri es das fortes tempestades que assol [...]


  12. Sin duda ya deber amos saber que, George R R Martin, antes de su famosa saga del hielo y el fuego, ya era un narrador a tener en cuenta Con Refugio del Viento demuestra una vez su capacidad para atraparte con su historia y no soltarte, a involucrarte como pocos logran, aunque en general, sea una novela irregular.La primera y la tercera parte son las mejor hilvanadas y con mejor ritmo del libro No as la segunda parte, que aunque a ade a uno de los personajes m s interesantes incluso m s que la pr [...]


  13. Windhaven me ha generado sentimientos encontrados La trama me ha gustado mucho, sobre todo por el tinte tico y moral que ti e la novela No solo te cuenta una historia, sino que te hace posicionarte, te hace ver m s all Personalmente, me ha conminado a reflexionar, no solo sobre la novela, sino adem s ha extrapolado ciertas ideas a mi vida y mi d a a d a Toda novela que me hace reflexionar y pensar, ya solo por eso, es una novela que merece la pena, desde mi punto de vista Por otro lado, el ritmo [...]


  14. Anciennement titr en fran ais Elle qui chevauche les temp tes 1 , ce roman est en fait un recueil de trois grosses nouvelles encadr es par un prologue et un pilogue Et, histoire de g cher compl tement le suspense, je vous dis tout de suite que c est un chef d oeuvre du niveau des meilleures oeuvres de ma biblioth que Oui, j ai ador Mais heureusement, je vais vous dire pourquoi.D abord, le monde d crit m a parl un niveau difficilement imaginable Forc ment, en tant qu ancien marin de mers pas forc [...]


  15. 1.5Este libro se divide en tres partes, aunque yo lo dividir a en dos las partes que escribi George R R Martin y las que arruin Lisa Tuttle.Al principio, como de Martin s lo le Canci n de Hielo y Fuego, me preguntaba cu les ser an las partes escritas por l y cu les las de Tuttle Como es una obra anterior no estaba segura de si su estilo habr a cambiado con el tiempo Al ir avanzando se volvi muy claro, y cuando finalmente lleg el momento en que George Martin se puso a escribir, la diferencia fue [...]


  16. Everyone knows George R R Martin from his A Song of Ice and Fire series, yet a lot of his other books are fun reads as well I admit that I have only read a handful of his standalone novels, but what I ve read have been mostly good reads Windhaven is another book to add to the list of non ASOIAF books people should read if they re a fan of Martin s work.Truthfully, this wasn t a book I was going to go out of my way to purchase I d seen it whilst browsing online on than one occasion, but I never [...]



  17. If like myself, you have enjoyed Martin s A Song of Ice and Fire Series and been completely blown away by the honesty of his characters, the brilliance of his politics and spent countless hours awake at night, unable to sleep because you just HAVE to know what happens next, please don t read this book George R R Marin may have the utmost respect for the talents of Lisa Tuttle, but after reading this book, I can t say I share his opinion The concept is good but the characters are flat Half way th [...]


  18. Awesome YA SF F with a complex female protagonist.This is set on a planet with a crashed seed ship It s resource poor so society has technologically devolved The solar sail that brought them here has been taken apart and built into one person wings The open seas are dangerous Here There Be Dragons so flyers using the wings are the best method to keep the scattered islands connected.The story follows Maris, who wants to be able to keep flying and not have to pass the wings to her younger brother [...]


  19. The first thing you notice reading this book is that both Martin and Tuttle got better at writing later on The prose is pretty clunky, the characters aren t the most interesting or relatable, and the plot is mediocre The setting is the most important part of the premise, and is fairly compelling Fans of A Song of Ice and Fire might get a kick out of noticing names of people and places that Martin reused later on, as well as a sort of cameo by the character that would eventually become Tyrion Lan [...]


  20. A quaint tale in a truly unique and magical world, replete with well defined characters that grow from cradle to grave My sole complaint is that this novel is divided into three distinct parts with major jumps in the time line This can be rather jarring as it reads like three distinct novellas, instead of a composite novel.


  21. Rezensio folgt Allerdings ein sehr gutes Buch ber einen Traum und die Verwirklichung von Tr umen, allen Widerst nden zum Trotz EIn Buch das sagt man sollte an sich glauben und niemals seine Tr ume aufgeben


  22. A lungo fuori catalogo la prima edizione italiana risale al 1983 per la Nord , Il pianeta dei venti non realmente un romanzo, ma una raccolta che contiene tre racconti lunghi di G.R.R Martin e Lisa Tuttle, scritti tra il 1975 e il 1982 Le tempeste, Un ala e La caduta, preceduti da un Prologo e seguiti da un Epilogo.La protagonista dei tre racconti, cronologicamente ordinati, Maris, una Volatrice in un mondo di isole che si ergono su mari pericolosi per la navigazione, i contatti pi frequenti e s [...]



  23. As a fan of the A Song of Ice and Fire series, I was eager to read something else by the marvelous George R R Martin As captivating as that series is, I was sure that anything else he wrote would be just as amazing.What I Liked The world that George R R Martin created in A Song of Ice and Fire is so phenomenal, complex, and wonderful that you wonder if he could ever have the capacity to do it again Well, Windhaven proves his skill The cultural background and history, the geographical description [...]


  24. For as long as she can remember, fisherman s daughter Maris has wanted to fly Adopted by on of the fabled flyers, she is given a taste of soaring through the skies using the wings passed down from generation to generation in flyer families Now that her younger brother, her adoptive father s true son, is coming of age, however, Maris will have to give her wings up never mind that her brother doesn t even want them and she could not imagine a worse fate than remaining forever grounded So Maris cha [...]


  25. Windhaven is an amazing 35yrs old story adventure waiting to be discovered Divided in 3 parts plus prologue and epilogue, the story advances at a steady pace The third part being possibly the slower one and my least favourite.Having to pick one, I would choose the second part as the one I liked most This section is where all the action occurs and where the most interesting characters are introduced Where you get the feel of the world and what it means to fly.One possible criticism for this book [...]


  26. Disappointment is not the right word however dispair is There is not enough melodrama in the world to explain how awful this book is.I am sure that I am not going to be alone in reading the Ice and Fire books in awe at the characters, the comlexity, the story line Geroge R R Martin s volume after volume of brilliance.I then picked this upI wanted to like it because of who wrote it but I did not believe in the characters, the plot was flimsy, the premise worse and I am not even going to go on to [...]


  27. I liked the book because it was very real, in the sense that there weren t cliche elements such as ultimate triumphs of good over evil, and the exploits of the characters weren t entirely smooth sailing The book conveyed how there will always be disappointments in life, and things can t always turn out the way you want, no matter how much you want them too And because it was so real, the story was really moving and several times I stopped reading to jump around with excitement However, the writi [...]


  28. A very nice read.Although not quite as rich as A Song of Ice and Fire, I still greatly enjoyed visiting another of George R R Martins worlds.
