    One thought on “Tuf Voyaging

    1. Felicia on said:

      This is a very odd George RR Martin book that I picked up randomly It s almost serialized into 5 parts, but holds together nicely as a book It s about a very odd trader who basically gets possession of the most powerful ship in the galaxy, and how he uses it to help people Orhinder them And underneath the stories there are VERY powerful environmental and animal rights messages, it s kind of amazing and dark and has an amazing sense of humor Definitely a really fun ride, I have to check if he wro [...]

      So I tried to like this After all, I dig SF and I m a huge George R R Martin fanboy.Which makes it kind of a shame that it REALLY didn t work for me The book is a collection of the Haviland Tuf short stories Tuf is a former space trader who, after agreeing to ferry a motley and untrustworthy crew to the archeological discovery of a lifetime, finds himself in control of the most powerful ship in the universe the last seedship of the long lost Ecological Engineer Corps And therein lies the problem [...]

      Tuf Voyaging is George Martin s excellent earlier sci fi book It s basically a collection of short stories, all focused on a space traveller named Tuf He is a vegetarian, he lives with several cats, and he has a giant bio engineering spaceship that can clone any kind of life form and grow it in a matter of hours So he travels the galaxy, trying to help worlds with their socioecological problems It s a fun read, if maybe a bit repetitive, and as with any collection of short stories, their quality [...]

      First read 2002Maybe I am biased, loving Martin s work as much as I do, but Tuf Voyaging is a real treat It s about a sarcastic lover of cats who comes into possession of an old Earth Imperial seedship of the Ecological Engineering Corps, and turns himself into an ecological engineer The dialogue in this book is priceless Haviland Tuf takes everything very literally, and responds with gravity and sarcasm that makes me laugh out loud Tuf is a great character and the stories here are so engaging I [...]

      It took me a long time to get ahold of this book I finally received it as a present Don t wait as long as I did to read it this is a great book It s certainly very different from the epic fantasy that Martin has become best known for, but fans of Martin are aware of his breadth of styles.The book collects stories about Haviland Tuf, Ecological Engineer and cat lover , that were originally published separately, but they come together as a coherent novel.The first section is a classic subtraction [...]

    7. Jean on said:

      More a novel in an unusual format than it is a short story collection, as it s touted, centering around the bizarre and enigmatic Haviland Tuf I love the sense of humor, which remains evenly subtle, and the change in Tuf works very well, from big hearted do gooder to the Lord God Himself as he himself declares in the second to last story, one of my favorites in the book , Tuf shows that there is no such thing as the incorruptible man and the dangers of holding not only such dangerous and advance [...]

      Finished Tuf Voyaging by GRRM I quite liked these stories, although I m not really sure if I should If you think about it, Tuf is not a nice person, and his actions create problems often than they solve them He s an extremely arrogant, patronising and sarcastic person, who doesn t really care about any living creature in the universe, unless it s a cat or pays him nicely The moral to all of the stories is that these people wouldn t have their problems if they d been intelligent and sensible in [...]

      One of George R.R Martin s best books I originally found this book in a used book store while in college and it has become an old friend I don t read it as often as LOTR but when I do it is always a pleasure.Haviland Tuf is a wandering trader of the spacelanes in the tradition of Star Trek s Cryano Jones Like Jones, he isn t very good at his job he barely gets by That is until he gets chartered to ferry some not so nice passengers in search of a dark and long forgotten legend What they find not [...]

      Me ha gustado mucho el personaje que Martin ha creado, con muchos matices, nada convencional y m s profundo de lo que a simple vista parece Algo que sin duda destacar a de l es su manera de hablar, que sin pretenderlo me ha hecho re r m ltiples veces Es cierto que, excepto en el primer episodio , contin a usando el mismo patr n intro, nudo y desenlace en la que Tuf resuelve un problema A n as creo que todo el tema de la gen tica y la ecolog a est tratado de una manera m s que satisfactorio avala [...]

    15. Rebecca on said:

      I d never heard of this book series of short stories Martin wrote back in the early 80s There s a reason for that.The first story, in which Tuf and a band of mercenaries find and squabble over an enormous, incredibly powerful derelict starship, is quite frankly terrible Really, truly awful If I hadn t been trapped on a train, I never would have bothered finishing it The plot is fairly predictable, even when it thinks it s being clever Every single character is a cardboard cut out, and if he was [...]

      Although I liked a lot of Martin s other work Song of Ice Fire, many of the short stories from Dreamsongs, some of the Wild Cards series , I couldn t bring myself to like this one There were three reasons mild structural spoilers ahead 1 Repetition Other than the first chapter story, all others had an identical pattern Tuf encounters a planet with a great ecological problem of quite a simple kind though , Tuf resolves to solve the problem as if on a whim, the planet causes difficulties, Tuf outw [...]

    17. Rob on said:

      Ecology is still a subject a lot of science fiction steers clear of Martin gives it a try in this collection but on the whole it is closer to a satirical work than a scientifically accurate one That being said, I did enjoy reading this collection again The humour is part of it, but I also simply enjoyed the writing Despite writing them out of chronological order, Martin manages to get a development in the character from a humble and eccentric trader in The Plague Star to a near megomaniac Manna [...]

      3,5 5Quer a leer la ciencia ficci n de Martin, y me pareci que Los viajes de Tuf era una buena forma de empezar.El libro es un conjunto de siete relatos en los que cada uno de ellos narra una aventura de este ser humano tan peculiar, que carece completamente de vello corporal, es tremendamente alto y corpulento, tiene una forma de hablar excesivamente pomposa algunos lo tachar an de pedante y adora a los gatos.S , es un libro lleno de gatos En todos los relatos, los gatos tienen importancia de u [...]

      Tuf Voyagingby George R.R Martinthe plauge star story is hard to put down, i found the dynics movement of the story to be out standing I could not even start the other stories i am reading because i had to see if tuf would survive the terriors and horrors involved in the ship.Loaves and fishes a lot harder to get into, but the story did fullfill its promise by the end, i like the solutions that were created to help the world contend with its ecological problemsurdians shows the conflict between [...]

      For any George R R Martin fan, you should already know what to expect He is one of those authors whose writing style is recognisable no matter what genre of book he is writing His particular style makes the books easy to read, keeping you interested from start to end, constantly curious as to what happens next Whilst this book does not follow the path of his most famous series A Song of Ice and Fire it is a great book for any of his fans or anyone who simply loves a good sci fi book.The book fol [...]

      Man muss nicht viele Worte ber dieses Buch verlieren, das scheinbar nur erschienen ist, um mit dem Hype um den Autor von Game of Thrones noch etwas Kasse zu machen Ich fasse mich also kurz.Die Kurzgeschichten um Haviland Tuf sind erschreckend durchschnittlich und haben trotz ihrer K rze einige L ngen Was vor allem am im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes blassen Hauptprotagonisten liegt, der in keiner Sekunde Sympathie erzeugen kann Im Gegenteil Die selbstgef lligen Dialoge von Tuf erzeugen eine rgerlich [...]

    28. Joe Lenihan on said:

      Tuf Voyaging was one of the coolest books I ve read in a long time While this is a collection of short stories all containing Haviland Tuf, the stories flowed and built off each other making it feel like a psuedo novel Perhaps the best thing about this collection was that every single story was fascinating and had a satisfying end and even than that was the character of Tuf himself It was rare to read a single bit of dialogue and not smile the entire time Tuf manages to use a strict balance of [...]
