The Alien Years
More by Robert Silverberg
It was the worst of times...
Fifteen feet tall, the Entities land in cities across Earth. Ignoring humankind, they wall themselves in impenetrable enclaves, enslaving a few willing collaborators with the telepathic PUSH. Then they plunge humans in a new Dark Age without electricity, allowing us to live—but no longer as a dominant species.
But a few refuse to submit to fate, including the Carmichael family, whose patriarch will inspire a daring new generation of dissidents. United in spirit, these diverse rebels—an aging hippie, a cold-blooded assassin, a prodigal son, and a renegade hacker—will attempt to kill the mysterious Prime Entity and free the planet.
A novel that evokes the feeling of Heinlein at his best. (And not unwittingly; the major character name "Anson" will certainly strike a chord with Heinlein fans.) :) Fans of H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds will find a good read as well.
An epic masterpiece.
"The ultimate alien invasion novel"
"Sobering and frightening... Silverberg's rich characters, his dead-on target vision of modern society, his mastery at building tension—are all in evidence in this notable outing from one of the very best."
