    More adventures in ancient science fiction—certainly Smith’s series does not stand up to today’s standards, but it certainly shows where sci fi had its beginnings. Reading it is rather like an archaeological dig, exposing the roots of the genre. I’m glad to see in this book that the female characters get to step up and show what they’re made of. Clarrisa dons her gray Lensman leathers (which still fit after having five children, including two sets of twins). Her four daughters keep all [...]

    Probably the quintessential Space Opera of its time, the Lensman series has dated - although not so badly as the work of some of his contemporaries - due mainly, in my opinion, to Smith’s rather one-dimensional characterisation, his dialogue and his depiction of female roles. Paradoxically, given the rather limited characterisation of the humans his aliens are sometimes truly alien. Indeed, the mindsets of some of the non-human protagonists are often far more skilfully depicted than their huma [...]

    The only five star I will give to one of the lensmens books written by the beloved Dr Smith. This has every space opera element and trope. The technology and weapons are now at the ridiculous level (super luminal planets traveling down hyper tubes from Nth space dimension to literally obliterate an entire solar system from existence). The fleet conflicts are in the billions of space ships vs billions of space ships. The children of the lens, a single male and two sets of female twins, the produc [...]

    I really should have started with an earlier book in the series, but this was the one in the opshopI have fond memories of reading some of the author's books in high school and I have to say, I think a lot of future sci-fi writers and movie/TV creators were inspired by this writer. The story arc is huge and spans generations. He has amazing ideas for species and technology that weren't even dreamed of at the time he was writing. He is a precursor to George Lucas and J.M Straczynski (is that how [...]

Jawohl, ze Final Solution! Shall I tell you vot happens? All ze, how you say, gory details?""Oh yes uncle Adolf I mean E.E. Doc! Yes please!"

    The previous book's energy and ability to surprise lagged somewhat, but this book saves the series from losing its momentum. How many stories have a loving husband and wife and their responsible children saving the galaxy? I lost track of which daughter was which, but their snappy patter and interplay make this an entertaining and worthwhile continuation of the LENSMAN series.

    Only 50% of the way through this random inheritance, but I have already decided that I now need to go and purchase the whole series from the start. A new (old?) favourite Sci-Fi author of mine, for sure.

    personally i didn't like it as much as the others because it felt repetitive and did not have as much content as the last 5 in the series.

    After the painfully uneven stumbles of Second Stage, the series finishes out with not so much a bang but an absoludicrous series of them. The Arisian master breeding program for humanity has reached its culmination in the titular kids; there are five of them but I defy anyone to be able to tell them apart. (Parts where our narrator insists they have different personalities don't count. Show, don't tell!) They all get trained to Third Stage Lensmanship, which is beyond even Arisian capacities (th [...]

    And so the last book in The Famous Lensman series, Children of the Lens - originally serialized in the magazine Astounding in 1947, comes to an end.Marking this epic space opera, which began over Two Billion years ago as the our Galaxy collided with another, as the seminal work it appears to be.Perhaps not as good as the penultimate book in the series, mostly because it introduces five new characters, the four daughters and one son of Kimball Kinnison & Clarissa MacDougall without much abili [...]

    The climactic finale of the Lensman series, this one continues on where the others left off. Civilization is in a tremendous battle for supremacy of two galaxies. The Lensmen are the force of Civilization, and the Kinnison Family is the ultimate in evolution of the Lensmen. They are tasked with bringing the war to a successful close by eradicating all vestiges of the evil masterminds seeking to overthrow society. Only by developing their full potential and working together will they be able to c [...]

    This is the final book in the series, and possibly the best. I won't lie, Triplanetary (The first) was a little rough for me at the start, and the prose of the entire series isn't all that spectacular (it's ancient space opera, what do you expect?) but for someone with a love of space opera, and all that space opera entailsI laughed with joy reading this series. Out loud. Not a laughter of humor, or disdain, but joy at the sheer audacity of the story and characters. If you happen to be a fan of [...]

    Fun to reread, or rather to listen to again. I own both the audiobook, and also a rather old paperback copy somewhere. This is the end of the serie. EE Doc Smith did write another book in the series, but that is not a continuation of this book, but another story in the same universe. There exist also some stories like that written by others.Some suspension of disbelieve is needed, in this book as in the full series. Smith uses some physics, and that is clearly dated. That does not make it a bad [...]

    My dad lent me Starship Troopers after I watched the movie with him. If I remember correctly I believe he stated "Those aren't Gorilla Suits!", followed by him dashing into the attic. Later that night, not being able to sleep due to his rummaging above my ceiling, I went up and asked him what he was doing. "Finding you the book!" was his response, and later that night I started reading my first science-fiction book. Needless to say I developed an appetite for them, and this was his next recommen [...]

    Sporadically enjoyable but by this point in the series the breathless style has worn out its welcome. The introduction of the children is a breath of fresh air that keeps the story from being tedious, but the revelation of the main antagonists of the series is clumsy and they go from being unknown to defeated in way too little time to feel like an imminent threat. This series was a huge influence on science fiction, but its successors in the genre really surpassed it in every respect.

    Great story but e-conversion needs editingI first fell in love with this book in college reading it before any of the others. I have read it so many times that , it wasn't hard to spot the missing chunk out of chapter 8 and the many misspellings even if the result of character recognition was a correct word but not the word for that context. I highly recommend that readers choose a used paperback until this e-conversion has been edited.

    In true space opera style this wraps everything up just a little too neatly to be believable, but if it didnt, it wouldnt really be space opera now would it?The things that had been impossible and unthinkable for the first 5 volumes are accomplished in a whirl by a few extra talented kids zipping around the bad guys home planets and lancing them with mental bolts too strong to be resisted. Still worthwhile to me though.

    Richard Roberts
    What there's more? You'd be forgiven for thinking that this marked the end of the Lensman series, there's still one more on my shelf to read though. Great flow in this story, somehow the last quarter or less of the book packed in more and more. I thought I was on the wind down a few times only to have another jolt. Brilliant.

    Fred
    Finally!!Once again, e.e. doc writes in an older style. To make matters worse, he tends to be verbose and uses many really obscure words. Worst of all, this last installment continues with numerous typos and apparent editorial errors. All in all, while remaining classic sci-fi, the series, as it stands, is cumbersome and difficult to read.

    Ed
    This is actually about the whole Lensman series. I found the books to be greatly engaging. I read them first as a child, then read them again in my 30's, then my 40's. Sure some (a lot) of the science is out to lunch now, but it is still a good action read.

    Rob
    The sixth and surprisingly not last book in the lensman series brought together all of the threads from the first five books and led to the anticipated conclusion of the series. I am a little bit confused as to what the next book could add.

    Mark Kinney
    I find myself wishing half-stars were possible in the setup here. This book pretty much had the best and worst of all the prior books, chronology-wise. Plenty of excitement, but also largely deterministic. But wow, what they do to dispose of some of their enemies!

    Jim
    The sixth and last book in the Lensman series brought together all of the threads from the first five books and led to the anticipated conclusion of the series. There are lots of related books in the Lensman universe. Seek them out for more fun in space.

    Adrian
    As good as the rest. What a great series.

    Michael
    Despite its outdated scientific and social (read gender) ideas, it's still a very good read.

    Doug Farren
    I read this one a LONG time ago. The Lensman series is a classic which I periodically go back and reread. Love it!

    Ronald Wilcox
    I was pretty disappointed with this book. Maybe because I did not read the five preceding books in the series? I usually enjoy Sci-Fi quite a bit but this one had trouble holding my interest.

    Jim Riggs
    The final chapter in the Lensman series. The children of the Lens take the fight to the space pirates and their other worldly masters.

    See my review of First Lensman.

    Best of the series.
