Alan Dean Foster is the Prolific Whore of Science Fiction. But still, I enjoyed this book and look forward to the rest of the Alan Dean Foster collection I inherited. Mar 18, 2008 Barry rated it it was ok. That's an unofficial title, by the wa. He 's also the Movie Tie-In King of Sci Fi (official title). It's not so much that he writes well as he simply writes a lot. And, actually, some of his stuff is well-written. Voyage to the City of the Dead" is one of his so-so books. It's a quick, entertaining read that doesn't have an enormous amount of build-up, which is okay because it doesn't really go anywhere anyway.

Alan Dean Foster wrote a nifty little novel entitled Sentenced to Prism, where he explores a crystalline world with prismatic lifeforms. His vision and detail were excellent. He applies this talent again in Voyage to the City of the Dead where the planet of Tslamaina is composed of one circular ocean which is surrounded by kilometer-high cliffs of earth. Along the gigantic river of Skar, there are villages dotting the delta and riverside areas. The three intelligent native species live among the different climates of the river, which runs all the way to the north where a massive icecap feeds the flow. And like in Sentenced to Prism, Dean Alan Foster fully explores the facets of the gem of a planet.

The human exploration of Tslamaina is being conducted by a husband-wife geologist-anthropologist duo. Their sophisticated hydrofoil is the most advanced object on the planet and an object of desire for some of the conniving locals. Though bickering much of the time, each one devotes their time to studying their own subject... which bores their partner to no end is becomes the source of schism. This chasm of understanding between the husband-wife team only grows larger as they move further up the river and it also becomes the divide where you begin to dislike the novel because of the petty bickering.

The voyage is full of exploration of the geography, discoveries of geological interest, probing of the values of two of the local intelligences, exposing the coping of life between the social divides... it's all quite well done and maintains a great pace of discovery. The last 20% of the novel pulls a four punches: one disappointingly anthropomorphic trait rears its head, one kind of obvious destination conclusion, one WTF left-field addition, and one neat idea which ties in with the WTF.

Ultimately, while the discovery aspect of of great interest, the nagging couple drag the reader away from the meat of the book and the ending is something which is just completely unsatisfactory. So, come for the xeno-sociological bonanza and simply be wowed by it, but don't expect anything fancier.

We accompany a husband-and-wife scientific team as they explore an alien planet. Lyra, the wife, focuses on life forms; the husband, Etienne, on geology. Initially Etienne is bored, but that is about to change. The third-world natives are going to allow the two to use their hydrofoil to explore the gigantic river canyon. It is the most impressive yet discovered in the galaxy, and Etienne is anxious to examine its source.

Typical of Alan Dean Foster, the reading is easy. I could have handled it in the sixth grade. Nevertheless it is not juvenile. The principle characters behave as adults, developing gradually as we get to know them. And though they exude an aura of science, the science is light. VOYAGE TO THE CITY OF THE DEAD entertains with an imaginative setting, bright characters, and plenty of adventures. Death happens, but the surprise ending is happy. Unlike the movie EUROPA REPORT. Thank goodness!

This is a very interesting tale of two scientists who take a boat journey up a giant river in an interestingly populated world. There are actually three sentient species in the world, and they all occupy different ecological niches. ADF crams in a lot of culture and world building in to a rather small book, and at times the novel can read like an ethnographical study. I didn't mind this at all, as I found the species quite interesting. The main tale itself if pretty good, and the ending comes out of nowhere, catching you quite off guard.

I believe the book is out of print, but is well worth picking up if you are an Alan Dean Foster fan. I've read it 3-4 times over the last 25 years, and each time enjoyed it a little more. I felt that the book was a set up for a sequel, but if it was, I never found the sequel or he never wrote it. Anyway, very fun, and worth seeking out.

I must have been on an Alan Dean Foster kick back in the 80's. This sci-fi novel held my interest enough to keep reading to its end. Overall, Foster creates a world but the writing and the characters are not captivating. Overall, a fair piece. I enjoyed "Into the Out Of" and "Quozl" better. 10-2010

Voyage to the City of the Dead is the tale of 2 scientist on a world with 3 sentient species. They encounter personally all three species and the reader meets and learns about each's culture. In the end there is a further clue to ADF's side story of the evil blackness and the race that knew about it. A very good book, but not neccassarily one of his best. I recommend it.
