Recent Comments "A Honeymoon In Space"
There s a reason this turn of the century classic science fiction novel is so unknown among readers a hundred years later It stinks The plot an abduction to space turned forced wedding will hardly appeal to modern readers The science was adequate for SF novels of that day, but the story telling is mediocre.Misogynistic and boring.
Alright so this was the book I chose for the between 1900 and 1950 task of the Read Harder challenge It s an early work of science fiction and it does some interesting things, but I really can t give it than two stars.It was interesting to see what people imagined the surfaces of these planets would be like before telescopes could give us accurate information So, for example, he describes Venus as having really really clean and fresh air This also was published before Einstein s theory of relat [...]
An Old Fashioned HootThis book is charming with it s naive tale of space faring adventure Though the science is not exactly cutting edge, it is quite inciteful for the time it was written.
This was great fun If you can imagine a sci fi of the standard of Journey to the Centre of the Earth crossed with one of those oh so dated guides for housewives you kind of have the picture.This was written in 1902, before things like cars, aeroplanes, telephones, radio etc were commonplace, but you can really feel that the author knows these are so close he can almost taste them however, all his guesses to exactly what was around the corner are wonderfully wrong Of course all the planets in the [...]
Boy meets girl.Boy kidnaps girl.Boy marries girl and takes her for a spin around the Solar System.Oh, sure The plot is rudimentary However, A Honeymoon is Space is noticeably easier to read than either The Angel of the Revolution or The Outlaws of the Air which are two other George Griffith novels that I ve recently read The prose, at least, is somewhat better insofar as it doesn t drone on forever.Like the author s other work that I ve sampled, Honeymoon is ultimately worth reading only for a t [...]
This fanciful tour of the solar system is certainly quaint by today s standards The newlywed couple and their somewhat surly servant engineer find warriors on Mars, angels on Venus, and other assorted aliens on Ganymede, Jupiter, and Saturn all in the space of four months in their spaceborne dirigible I suspect the book was written partly as a social commentary, but that aspect is mostly lost on a modern reader.
Reviewing this book, thinking back to the old B movie classic s and you wont go far wrong with this read Had a smile reading this and reminiscing about how technology has changed and some books films have been left behind, this being one.If you can switch off your logic and just enjoy the story, then do that with this book, its a quaint read where life exists on the other planets of the solar system, with some good bad inhabitants on them and we follow the story of the interactions.
Well what an odd little book this was A well to do Victorian man abducts a woman aboard his ship and takes her on a tour of the solar system, meeting hostile martians what a surprise , kindly Venusians and angelic Ganymedians Oh and two headed monsters A delightfully naieve trip onto space, cliche ridden but good fun
It was an enjoyable read as a sample of Victorian Science Romance The exploration framework was entertaining but the science was a wonder to behold in it s naivet even factoring in the newness of the ideas for Victorian and Edwardian times it comes off as very simplistic and comic.
Lenox Redgrave, a charming young English Lord, is making jaws drop with his new ride a shiny, one of a kind flying ship that can travel even outside of the earth s atmosphere More than that, he is determined to sweep up the girl of his dreams and take her on a honeymoon that is out of this world I really loved the start of this book A gorgeously handsome Earl comes to kidnap a beautiful young woman in order to save her from her fate of an arranged marriage and perpetual boredom Together, they el [...]
Written in 1900, this is one of the first novels about travel to other planets It has a mix of relatively modern scientific ideas and some laughably mistaken views of the planets and planetary science There are a number of instances where an aristocratic attitude comes through On Ganymede, they find everyone looks great, and conclude the better races have ascended and the inferior races have disappeared or become slaves There s some poor forecasting of geopolitics anticipating the next internati [...]
I read this with an open mind because I had heard a number less than good reviews about this book, but I am a BIG fan of classic and pre classic SF I can t even give this a three because it has NO plot, none at all It just meanders around the solar system literally I can forgive the naive science but the lack of a plot no Just make the story about something Could have been an adventure or romance anything Instead it reads nearly like pro British and American propaganda Kind of a nationalistic Ma [...]
Product Description About eight o clock on the morning of the 5th of November, 1900, those of the passengers and crew of the American liner St Louis who happened, whether from causes of duty or of their own pleasure, to be on deck, had a very strange in fact a quite unpreceAbout the Author Pseudonym of English author, adventurer and traveller George Chetwynd Griffith Jones He earned great fame as a science fiction writer in the last decade of the 19th century In his writings the influence of Dar [...]
So so many unrelated tangents You see this kind of writing when the author is attempting to world build I usually like it, but if brevity is the soul of wit, here lies the deceased body of a good story concept.
A rich british man and spunky american woman fly around the solar system Each planet or moon they visit represents a potential view of the past or future of the human race Its really quite good pulpy sci fi and the female character is fairly strong for the time.
I give a lot of allowances for scientific misconceptions in early science fiction novels, but in this one, the author is not only uninformed, but strangely inconsistent This is also one of the most boring reads I ve had in a long time.
