Tambu - The True Story Of An Interstellar Genghis Khan Paperback – 1979. by Robert Lynn Asprin (Author).

Robert Lynn Asprin oli hea fantaasiaga leidlik kirjamees, kel ka süda oli õigel kohal, kuid kirjatehnikaga olid mehel lood pisut kehvemad. Tambu on väga hea, aga pisut konarlikult kirja pandud romaan.

Tambu Robert Asprin Robert Asprin Tambu INTERVIEW I As the airlock door hissed shut behind him, the reporter took advantage of the moment of privacy to rub his palms on hi. The walls were of a texture unfamiliar to him, of a dark gold in dramatic contrast to the customary white. The trappings of the room made quiet contribution to the atmosphere. There were paintings on the walls, and books lined the d books instead of the tape-scanner usually found in libraries and studies. Several easy chairs were scattered about the room, obviously at convenient points for reading or contemplation.

Much to his surprise, the titles were mostly of an economic or philosophical nature. For some reason, he had been expecting the main thrust of the literature to be military history

Much to his surprise, the titles were mostly of an economic or philosophical nature. For some reason, he had been expecting the main thrust of the literature to be military history. Like Tambu, the library was proving to be inconsistent with his preconceived notions. He was about to take a volume down for closer inspection when Tambu's voice came over the console's speaker once more, "I'm ready to continue now, Mr. Erickson. Please forgive the interruption.

Certainly," Erickson agreed readily, glad to resume the familiar role of an interviewer. Purely a matter of convenience.

You're upset," Tambu observed. Certainly," Erickson agreed readily, glad to resume the familiar role of an interviewer. If you'd care for a drink, there is a bottle of Scotch on the table by the bathroom sink, along with glasses and ice. 'Inverness' I believe it's called. Feel free to help yourself.

Tambu is the quite simply the story of the rise to power of a despot of sort--a man without a companion, a man without a world. It's told by way of an interviewer seeking an audience with Tambu for a story about his life, how he became to BE Tambu, some of his trials and betrayals and successes. It's very cleverly done and framed, with short chapters detailing the interview talking to Tambu and a longer chapter advancing the story a bit.

Tambu is a strange mix of hero and pragmatist, a man who *seems* to want to be good but who will take wrathful vengeance if he's betrayed. I found him to be a fascinating mix, and to watch him grow and change as he becomes Tambu over time is fascinating.

This is quite simply one of THE best action adventure science fiction novels I've ever read. Hopefully you'll feel the same. A bit tricky to find anymore, but it's worth the effort. VERY recommended.

This book is the story of a reporter's interview with Tambu, the greatest pirate & villain in the Universe. The central theme of the story is a challenge to whole concept of heroes & villains. From the interview you would be forced to conclude that whether someone is a hero or villain is just a matter of your point of view. Tambu explains how he came to be considered the greatest villain in the universe. His explanation is logical & you could believe that give the same situation you might make the same decisions he did. Tambu expounds on this idea when he explains his philosophy that all decisions should be B.A.D. decisions (Best Available Data). Make the best decision you can based on the data available within the time parameters allowed. When reviewing a past decision you should be content that given the same situation, same information, and the same amount of time, you would make the same decision again (No 20/20 hindsight allowed). After reading this book you too will be challenging the notion of Heroes & Villains.
