They create a world that’s genuinely intriguing with a mysterious history that the reader can’t wait to unravel.

Characterization in this book is much to my liking. Books like paintings need to portray a workable world to pass the credible.

I thought the author did a decent job with the character development. What nafe if, several generations in, order and civility break down?

I also enjoyed the bonus weird Great early generation ship novel. They sent a small relieve-ship. That deals with all of the generation ship tropes in an impressively cohesive manner.

So yeah, probably a stepping stone, important milestone etc.

Of course this plot has been flogged to death since then and the twists are comfortably predictable, but it was fresh when Brian did it back in the mid 50s and he did it pretty well. Sadly, the overall effect was just not that great. And the very en Interesting ideas in this story, though maybe they’d have seemed somewhat more interesting when the book was written in the ’50s.

Most of the people we encounter are selfish to some degree and concerned for their own survival. Pringle points out that the characters are small literally and metaphorically, since one result of the mutation has reduced the average height to about five feet. Paperbackpages. One of my all-time favourites by a master of Sci-Fi. Did I like it or did I really like it?

If you had the time and inclination, you could give this book a basic edit, taking out unnecessary words, making the sentences active and not passive, and other standard writing techniques it takes no great skill to implement, and you would noticeably improve the prose of this book.

Here are some of my favourite lines: They think nothing of stabbing each other in the back. You have the smaller rag-tag mix of survivors from different groups banding together for survival, blah, blah, blah.
