    Mass Market PaperbackÌ Planet Plane eBook â planet download, plane book, Planet Plane EpubI received this book as part of a giveaway and am very glad I did Despite being a fan of John Wyndham's work I had not heard of Stowaway to Mars before as it was originally published under a different name Stowaway to Mars tells the story of five men attempting the first return flight to Mars Their plans begin to go awry when they discover a stowaway on board their rocket This stowaway Joan becomes the source of conflict in the novel primarily because her presence and in particular her femaleness elicits a range of reactions from the other passengers Even while zipping through space gen

    Mass Market PaperbackÌ Planet Plane eBook â planet download, plane book, Planet Plane EpubReading a John Wyndham novel has never left me disappointed but before reading ‘Stowaway to Mars’ I was made aware that it had a much lower rating than some of his better known books such as ‘Day of the Triffids’ ‘Chrysalids’ and ‘The Kraken Wakes’ It is worth noting that this did lower my expectations and uite possibly this contributed to my surprise enjoyment of the story It is important to take two caveats into consideration before you read this book Firstly it was written in the 1930’s This is imperative to understanding some of the sexism and misogyny that you will encounter It was definitely a different time and if you can take that with a pinch of salt you might enjoy the book as much as I did In fact some of the outright sexist remarks gave me the best laughs I’ve ever had from a Wyndham novel Secondly another poin

    Mass Market PaperbackÌ Planet Plane eBook â planet download, plane book, Planet Plane EpubThis book achieved something that very few books have managed it interested me so little that I put it down for a couple of months before finishing it It is a novel containing promising ideas and plot points that fail to deliver or take the storyline anywhereThe novel starts with a foiled attempt of espionage that could be either national or corporate This wets the appetite for intrigue and competition between the different parties trying to reach Mars for the Keuntz prize but the reveal of the stowaway after the rocket has launched fails to deliver on this ear

    Mass Market PaperbackÌ Planet Plane eBook â planet download, plane book, Planet Plane EpubIt's always fascinating to read an SF space travel novel written before the space race when the only ships imagined seem to be of the World War II V2 variety Why anyone would want to travel in a rocket with no discernable means of landing safely escapes me entirely but to be a young female stowaway aboard a ship full of mysoginistic a holes takes a special kind of stupidAll that said although this is an early work of Wyndham's to which he chos

    Mass Market PaperbackÌ Planet Plane eBook â planet download, plane book, Planet Plane EpubFor a battle between rusting and malfunctioning Martian robots and a group of Earthmen on the surface of the Red Planet go no further than this book which begs but won't get a seuel Not from John Wyndham anyway I love the complete disregard for health and safety at the rocket launch The stoical and solitary policeman on crowd duty is unsure whether or not he and the other spectators will be wiped out by the igniting rocket fuel when the spaceship takes off I like the way the astronauts work out from the basic instrumentation that there is someone else aboard the ship as they m

    Mass Market PaperbackÌ Planet Plane eBook â planet download, plane book, Planet Plane EpubJohn Wyndham only started writing under the name John Wyndham after the Second World War around 1950 after a long hiatus since 1936 covering the war years and a while either side of them His writing before the war was under the names John B Harris and John Beynon This is the first book I’ve read from that period and I’m frankly shocked at how bad it is especially considering that the next book he wrote was the classic Day of the Triffids published in 1951 He was already 33 in 1936 so it’s not just down to ‘youth’ but something certainly changed; maybe the war was the main factor Regardless this book is very much in the same vein as Verne’s much earlier From the Earth to the
