Helm | [Steven Gould]

Helm

After global devastation, the last remnants of Earth sent a handful of colonists of a distant terraformed world to give humanity one last, desperate chance. Unable to provide the technology required for an advanced civilization, the founders instilled in the colonists a strict code of conduct and gave them a few precious imprinting devices: glass helmets that contain all of Earth's scientific knowledge. Once in a generation, the heir to the province of Laal begins the arduous training required to survive the imprinting of the Glass Helm and acquire the knowledge of the lost Earth.

Publisher's Summary

After global devastation, the last remnants of Earth sent a handful of colonists of a distant terraformed world to give humanity one last, desperate chance. Unable to provide the technology required for an advanced civilization, the founders instilled in the colonists a strict code of conduct and gave them a few precious imprinting devices: glass helmets that contain all of Earth's scientific knowledge.

Once in a generation, the heir to the province of Laal begins the arduous training required to survive the imprinting of the Glass Helm and acquire the knowledge of the lost Earth. But Leland de Laal, the youngest son of one of Agatsu's greatest leaders, has climbed the forbidden rock spire where the Helm is kept and donned it, unaware that its knowledge has a terrible price. To an unprepared mind, it brings madness, agony, and even death.

    "Missing Chapters"
    Would you try another book from Steven Gould and/or Paul Boehmer?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful book, it is my favorite of all of Steve Gould's books. Paul Boehmer's performance is also excellent. However the book or at least my copy which I have tried downloading three times is missing all of chapter 21, and parts of chapters 20, 22 and 23. It is also missing Chapter 24. This was probably an editorial fault, however it earns the book the two star review even though I love the book and thought the performance excellent.
