Popular Book Children of the Thunder Children of the Thunder is a science fiction novel by John Brunner.John Brunner has written a really wonderful book 'THE SHEEP LOOK UP' that I should probably re-read. This book came close but not quite to the despondency that Earth is supposed to face in the present/near future.There is developing computers in this book and witch scares about AIDS making this a little dated, but when the whole think is rolled together then it makes for one loud polluted toxic page fart. Kids. They do the darnedest things! This kid, Dave, is a computer whiz who makes designer drugs that often kill people as a byway. Oh well. He is the product of an artificially inseminated mother and seems to have some kind of charm about him. He looks at you and touches you and you think it's a good idea to just drop down and suck him off, forget about the crap he's pulled. What a card!!Bad seeds are all over the place. These kids are up to no good committing theft, vandalism, sex ring rackets and murder. It's ok, good kids right....they get away with it! On top of this book is some news blurbs popping up about a General Thrower who is trying to get England into ship shape with bringing back the h bomb and getting rid of anyone not of white euro stock. He is putting the polluted pox cherry on the top of the toxic world trash heap. One guy is just involved with all this as a science editor, he and his acquaintance are trying to figure out why these kids, there's a few out there, don't fit into the normal pattern of bad kid with bad situations. They excel in the bad situations and no one seems to do anything about it. What's going to happen since no one can get certain foods to take anymore without a virus beating it to extinction. Animals are getting cancer very easily. Chain reactions of the food chain dying out. Everything will be unaffordable? Trash food is cheap.I don't like the way Brunner sometimes glosses over the characters and plot developments in one or two sentence bursts. He just drops facts and tidbits in a sentence without flesh sometimes. This book is no exception for me. I find myself rereading a sentence, 'ok so this kid here just blew this rocket up and it was to see a program on his computer worked. Yep ok, got it, couple sentences, big boom. Although by the end of the book I was going bananas to get to the climax, regardless, there was just enough meat anyway to keep the bones in my mouth and swallowing the final bone splinter gagged me, but in a way that I was definitely grinning gristle happy teeth.Originally posted this review on sfbook.com

  2. review of John Brunner s Children of Thunder by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE December 23, 2013 This might be called Brunner s Demon Seed novel, it centers around exceptionally successfully manipulative children I m reminded of the grim picture of children in the background of his Players at the Game of People 1980 see my review here book show 1 of Anthony Burgess s A Clockwork Orange 1962 , wch I ve read, of John Wyndham s The Midwich Cuckoos 1957 filmed as Village of the Damned , wch I probably h [...]



  3. There are ways in which the book now feels behind the times, obviously No smart phones, still using VCRs and modems modems , no web cams That makes a huge difference in the plot It also slows down character research, which makes up a large part of the book but Brunner makes it interesting.There were some plot developments this time that seemed a little obvious, but while I admit my memory sucks, I m pretty sure that s just because I ve read it before It made an impression when I was in high scho [...]


  4. This is a really weird novel My friend Sarah bought it at a secondhand bookstore in Trinoma, probably because the back cover spiel was quite interesting and the cover art was classic old sci fi book stuff The novel was published in 1988 and the copy she got was a first print it probably didn t get a second methinks Well, she left the copy with me and out of interest I read it.The novel was set in Britain in the 1990s, when human society was starting to fall apart and the natural resources were r [...]


  5. I have long been a fan of Brunner, and have all but worshiped The Shockwave Rider in a manner most geeks reserve for bigger SF names since my teens I was, therefore, predisposed to like this book.If you, dear reader, are not likewise predisposed, I would urge a moment s caution Without providing any spoilers, let me note that the central themes of this book deal directly with topics about which a great many people have extremely strong feelings I seriously doubt whether it could be published in [...]


  6. I liked the premise of the book, not the execution 1990s Britain is on the verge of total collapse due to economic and ecological disasters around the world A fascist government is on the verge of taking complete control Researcher Claudia Morris discovers disturbing patterns in children crimes and reporter David Levin senses a potential story They soon discover that these kids aren t just simple juvenile delinquents but something Each of these kids possess a strange power of charm Were these k [...]


  7. While ,our current world isn t quite as disfunctional as the 1990 s in Cildren of Thunder , there are a great many disturbing similarities Into this world I went to find both expected and unexpected plot twists as together with the characters I treid to figure it out and fell victim to the same misleading clues While the ending wasn t totally unexpected, there were a few surprise twists and when I closed the last page I had a good chuckle


  8. This was eerie and a bit scary in terms of what the future could bring Brunner makes it seem all to plausible There are one or two scenes that are than PG 13 in case some parent wants to know.
