    ´ Trillions Epub ß trillions epub, Trillions PDFI remember this book from my childhood I may have been 9 or thereabouts and it was given to me at school if I recall correctly My memories are very positive I gave the book a 4 on the basis of them but it turns out that I never actually read past the first 3 chaptersThe first three chapters are pretty good because the idea at the heart of this book tiny crystals raining down from space and demonstrating the ability to move together and mimic things is pretty damn cool Basically this is alien nano technology imagined in 1973Sadly the rest of the book is deadly dull written in the very dry style of 60's and 70's sci fi and all about 'THE IDEA' rather than the charactersIt turns into essentially a desiccated discussion of what the trillions are forabout set against the background of a cartoon y semi satire imagining of the global responseFor no discernible reason the global re

    ´ Trillions Epub ß trillions epub, Trillions PDFWhat a beguiling and sophisticated book this is I read Nicholas Fisk voraciously as a child and when I saw this in a charity shop with the evocative 1980s reprint cover not the unappealing and frankly misleading new one I snapped it upI do remember finding it a bit obtuse when I was younger and no wonder the substance of the book is all themes and ideas with characters and story sketched out with a minimum of fuss That is on the whole a strength and actually the characters are no weaker for it especially Scott Houghton who comes over as fully formed even though details about his family and day to day life are pretty much ignored we are told he keeps bees but we never see him doing itWhich means we are thrown right into the situation and again what it means is a lot important than what happens In effect that turns into an exploration of how the world responds to the unknown and for a book that is over 50 years old it is managing to remain remarkably prescient t

    ´ Trillions Epub ß trillions epub, Trillions PDFI read this as a first edition which I still have somewhere A cracking read for any child it's the story of what happens when humans encounter an alien species or life form that we don't understandSometimes it takes a child's eye view to make sense of things Children trust and explore where adults want to destroy I have very fond memories of this novel and I'm sure it influenced me It's a timeless story and I think any child would enjoy it I wonder if ET owes something to it in terms of an idea?And I mean make sense

    ´ Trillions Epub ß trillions epub, Trillions PDFThis short 1971 work is Fisk’s second published novel and bears some similarities to its predecessor Mysterious blue grains fall from space onto a seaside town and then the rest of the planet where the children play with them and call them “trillions” Two nerdy boys named Scott and Bem for Bug Eyed Monster discover that they’re microscopic gears and their girl friend Panda finds that they’re able to organise themselves intelligently into patterns There’s a media frenzy and divers discover that they have formed into a giant “fort” on the nearby sea bed The military move in while Scott befriends a world weary astronaut who was badly burned on a space mission and is now a professor Scott manages to establish communication with the Trillions via writing getting them to form letter shapes and they tell him they originate from a planet which exploded where their job was to maintain the environment Their purpose on Earth is to be hated Mea

    ´ Trillions Epub ß trillions epub, Trillions PDFThought about books I’ve read over my life when I recalled this title I read 40 years agoI can’t believe it was that long ago anyway I recall it was a fun read Probably my first scientific adventure I had to write a book report on it though never did I read it from cover to cover thank you school for giving me a place to do thatNice to see I’m not the only reader of the book Though I remember my book being a blue hardcover with some weird gem on the cover below the title I learned you don’t have to be a bipedal humanoid to be extraterrestrialA pleasant adventure for the scientific kid Hope it stays in print
