      Στο τρίτο βιβλίο της sci-fi πενταλογίας της, Canopus in Argos, η Ντόρις Λέσινγκ (πρόκειται για την κουλ κυριούλα που έμαθε στα 88 της ότι πήρε το Νόμπελ Λογοτεχνίας γυρνώντας από τα ψώνια στη λαϊκή -ψάξτε το βίντεο), βάζει πλώρη για έναν πραγματικά μεγαλεπήβολο στόχο· να παρουσιάσει -ελ [...]

      The third in Lessing's Canopus in Argos series, and after the relatively smaller scale of the second book we're back on a galactic scale, watching as Sirian bureaucrats try to guide the evolution of civilisation on Earth over vast periods of time. Once again Lessing is concerned with superior intelligences trying to maintain their patience, humility and perspective in the face of barbarity. As the cover blurb warns, the narrator is rather "dry", but that's not to say she's aloof or unsympathetic [...]

      spectacular book. lessing has an amazing way of thinking, and reading this book is like listening to her think. it's fiction, it's a memoir, its about space, but it is not in any conventional sense a novel and that seems to put some people off. but i've read it twice now (over a 10-year interval) and been stunned both times by what it does to me as I read.

    4. J.M. Hurley says:

      Just reread this after years and it was even better than my (rather faded!) memory of it. Lessing is one of my favourite writers and in my view was and is so beyond her time that even now this book is probably still just one step ahead of current evolution. It was fascinating to see how much of what was predicted for the "imaginary" Shikasta has actually come to pass in recent years. But what I really felt on this read was the deep flow of Canopus, with its heart based approach of flow and inter [...]

    5. Giovanna says:

      "Se ho imparato così tanto su ciò che non mi sarei mai aspettata di imparare, quanto ancora posso sperare di apprendere e di capire, posto che ne abbia la pazienza, e non mi conceda di fare domande inutili?" Dire che ho amato questo libro non sarebbe giusto, ma mi ha coinvolto molto. Penso che sia l'altra faccia della medaglia di Shikasta, narrativamente è più scorrevole, con un'impostazione classica, e il contesto fantascientifico è più accentuato, eppure se non avessi letto Shikasta, con [...]

    6. Vel Veeter says:

      The Sirian Experiments flips the scripts in a lot of ways from the first two novels and takes another look at the history of the conflict between Sirius and Canopus, but now through the lens of an envoy from Sirius. This change does a lot for the story. Sirius is less powerful and more cunning and deceitful as a colonizing force than Canopus, but it’s also more recognizable as a culture. Maybe it’s how Lessing’s novel sees the difference between the different colonizing forces. For example [...]

    7. Strong Extraordinary Dreams says:

      Fuck that was boring. I must have read half of it, what a waste of fucking time.

    8. Andy Todd says:

      Canopus in Argos Vol. III : not quite as inspiring as the first two but still superb.

    9. Isabel (kittiwake) says:

      if we wanted to, we could have crammed our planets with billions of genera, species, races—as they once had been. When we wanted, they could be left empty. We could—and did—maintain some planets, for special purposes, at high levels of population, and leave others virtually unpopulated. While all these variations on our basic problem were attempted, our space drive had been stabilised. We had discovered that no matter how forcefully we swept out into space, gathering in suitable planets as [...]

    10. Nicole says:

      I loved the idea of this book: having another look and evaluation of our planet's physical and social history by removing ourselves from the equation. This was done as a memoir told from the viewpoint of the main administrator of the galactic empire that has been involved in the events of our planet for millennium.It was interesting to see ideas and historical events in this removed manner. Some things I marked:"To 'live simply', to 'get back to nature', seemed to nearly everyone the solution to [...]

    11. Yiorgos says:

      What is amazing about "The Sirian Experiments" [which I ought to point out I read independently from the rest of the series] is the way in which the science fiction works as a sort of political-psychological history of what makes up the human psyche. Through the memoirs of one of the leaders of the Sirian Empire, one of the fictional interplanetary empires that in Lessing's universe colonise and repeatedly experiment with the population of Earth, we see the history of the planet and human civili [...]

    12. Jos says:

      I couldn't bring myself to start this review. In the meantime I have read books four and five of the Canopus cycle as well. Therefore, I can ultimately state that The Sirian Experiments is among the three good books from this series, the other two being book 1 and book 5.The Sirian Experiments take up what book 1 began. While Marriages (book 2) left the macro interplanetary / -cultural level, we are now back to an eagle's perspective. Only this time, we see the universe not from the all-knowing [...]

    13. Mikael Kuoppala says:

      The third volume in Doris Lessing's space saga is very close in style to what I would have hoped to have seen in "Shikasta," the opening novel of the series. Like "Shikasta," "The Sirian Experiments" chronicles a long history of Earth, jumping from setting to setting, offering a panoramic view of our planet. Unlike "Shikasta," which was a near chaotic compilation of different texts barely forming a whole, this book is all one report from the viewpoint of an alien exploring this world. And the re [...]

    14. Erik Graff says:

      The concept of Lessing's series of soft science fiction novels is promising. It may be read as a series of accounts of surreptitious extraterrestrial interventions upon ourselves as the subjects of their competing attentions or it may be read as representing more or less covert Soviet and American competition over the allegiances and development of other states. The overriding concern, however, is moral, Lessing seeming to be more concerned with the character development of her protagonists in t [...]

    15. Brent says:

      This is the second time I've attempted this book. I first attempted the Sirian Experiments in the early 1980's when it came out. Additionally I have a natural trepidation for science fiction written by mainstream non-scifi authors. Especially Nobel Prize winning mainstream authors.While I got further with this book this second time around, I just cannot bring myself to suffer through it for another week or two. It's just not a novel. It reads like a dry scientific paper from a nature journal. I [...]

    16. Kelly Spoer says:

      I don't 100% know how I feel about this one. Seems that the narrator took a little bit too long to realize what she was being taught and that annoyed me, but that could have also been the point. (edited because I was that jerk who though she knew what a word meant, when obviously she didn't)I did enjoy the myths of the past though. And how each system dealt with their experiments. But I also want to just slap Canopus in the face. Like stop being so high and fucking mighty, ya know?

    17. Neith says:

      "We all see truths when we can see them. When we do, it is always a temptation to consider those who have not seen them as quite intrusively and obdurately stupid." Sister speaks for mewait, I hear my brother, Yogi Bhajan speaking into my other earDo not solve a problem, drop it. Yes, yes drop it to the ground and then take a stick and poke at to see if there is any life left of it. And if so, attend to that goodness with co-operation and friendship.

    18. Bart Everson says:

      This rather dry, confusing book, presented in the form of a "report" — a lengthy report — held my interest in an unusual way. It seemed to promise the answer to the "secret of life" (whatever that may be), and upon finishing it I feel as if it did indeed present some answer. Which I must have missed because of rushing so eagerly to finish the book.I feel that I could probably learn something worthwhile if I went back and read thru it again, carefully.But I don't think I will.

    19. Amber says:

      This third book in the Canopus in Argos: Archives series was as good as the first two. Doris Lessing's visionary grasp on our world is stunning. Read more here.

    20. Darceylaine says:

      A bit tedious to start, but it would seem (SPOILER ALTERT) that part of the whole point of the thing is about how deep changes to how we think about the world happen slowly and require patience. Lessing always has something important to say in her writing.

      One of the best books I've read.

    27. Enoch says:

      A third of five.

    28. Amanda P. says:

      This is the second of Lessing's "space fictions" I've read. I'm not rating it highly, but I will probably read her "Shikasta" eventually

    29. Alex Testere says:

      everyone on this planet should read these books okay?
