    One thought on “O Espírito de Dorsai”

    1. Two novellas wrapped in a conversation, between Amanda II & Hal Mayne as he is finding himself. Both novellas were good. The first is about the first Amanda & expands on the end of the previous book when Dorsai was invaded. Even at 93, the first Amanda, embodies the spirit of the Dorsai as she leads the defense of her home district with warriors made up of youngsters, amputees & oldsters like herself against first line troops.The second expands on the twins, Kensie & Ian Graeme ( [...]

    2. 9/10An interesting interlude that retells the events surrounding the death of Kensie Graeme and the attack on Dorsai by Dow deCastries from a different point of view than in the earlier novels. And the listener is Hal Mayne from the Final Encyclopedia, a poet who apparently is much more, and about whom I expect to read more in the rest of the Childe Cycle.

    3. Gordon R. Dickson really is an excellent author, and it completely shines forth in these two novels, combined in this edition. The action moves and really doesn't have a dull moment.

    4. Storyline: 2/5Characters: 3/5Writing Style: 3/5World: 2/5I'm a Dorsai fan. I wouldn't have guessed that about myself had someone described these books to me ahead of time. I find it hard to articulate what it is that captivates me with this series. I could even sympathize and understand readers who dislike the individual books or have abandoned the sequels. There are a lot of reasons to be frustrated with this specific volume. This is another book where the Childe Cycle moves in circles, refusin [...]

    5. Interesting stories adding more detail/perspective to events from other books in the cycle. Good read.

    6. Mr. Dickson is well known in science fiction circles as a good writer, so I bought this book. It is interesting. The Dorsai are the inhabitants of a planet humans have colonized in their expansion across the galaxy. There is little to survive on, so the wherewithal to survive has to be imported and what is exported are mercenaries. The book starts with a introduction to a female of a certain family, Amanda, and an off world questioner. He is curious about the history of the planet and she is th [...]

    7. A well-written story but seemed like it did not have a convincing overall theme. The book was split into two different storylines about the Dorsai, but all they had in common was their ancestral lineage. Another jarring factor was that one of the stories was told in first-person perspective while the other was told in third-person perspective. It made making the jump between stories a little harder to flow. I believe this is the third book in the series and as such, was definitely not a book you [...]

    8. Two entertaining stories/novelettes set in Dickson's Childe Cycle universe, tied together with brief narrative passages. They work better than some of the later novels because they're focused on single events in this future history-- lots of action, a bit of character development, and not so much distracting philosophizing. The first novelette is especially nice because it is from the point of view of an interesting and three-dimensional female character, something notably (but somewhat understa [...]

    9. A good read butThe book was interesting and worthwhile reading, certainly worth four stars. Unfortunately, like so many ebooks it had a plethora of spelling errors. After a lifetime of reading actual books it is frustrating to see so many ebooks being published containing such distractions. Doesn't anyone proofread anymore?

    10. If you are a fan of true Science Fiction these two books are a must. Gordon Dickson was one of the key authors of the great period. His Dorsai model has been used from everything including The Terminator, Borgs, and any super race concept imaginable. Shai Dorsai

    11. Shorts on DorsaiTwo short stories on Dorsais, filling up some gaps on the defense of Dorsai from DeCastro and in the death of Kensie Graeme and the reaction of his twin Ian. Very moving, short stories.

    12. Read the first book 'Dorsai!' of the two novels in this book. Very masculine storyline with fun battle scenes. Will read second book soon.

    13. Amanda ap Morgan tells the history of the Dorsai as mercanary warriors through two stories of Dorsai heroes covering hundreds of years.
