    So as we start the UK lockdown I am finally getting to catch up on my reading I wonder who else are finding themselves in this situation Anyway here we are with a Jack Williamson book I must admit in my question to readclassic or is it Golden age science fiction I have been looking forward to reading a Jack Williamson book for a while.So here we go with the Moon Children I must admit that as I read this I honestly did think it was a lot older than the early 70s publication date So as we start the UK lockdown I am finally getting to catch up on my reading I wonder who else are finding themselves in this situation Anyway here we are with a Jack Williamson book I must admit in my question to readclassic or is it Golden age science fiction I have been looking forward to reading a Jack Williamson book for a while.So here we go with the Moon Children I must admit that as I read this I honestly did think it was a lot older than the early 70s publication date as a lot of the references and scientific ideas felt dated although at some point would have been considered acceptable This is not a bad thing and for all I know was an intention of the author But what of the book well apart from reading a lot like a particular John Wyndham book am sure you can guess it without giving any true spoilers the book is a good old pulp science fiction romp which to be honest never really goes out of fashion the book itself was fun to read although I still struggle on how best to categorise it true its not one of his best or most famous but I certainly enjoyed it

    Jack Williamson nella sua carriera ha scritto ben di meglio che questo romanzetto sconclusionato che mescola viaggi lunari, invasioni aliene, scenari da dopobomba, figli dell invasione , superpoteri misteriosi ed extraterrestri potentissimi per ottenere un risultato piuttosto noioso e sfilacciato, con vari episodi poco o nulla giustificati dalla trama e nella trama.Poteva essere accettabile negli anni 70 quando stato scritto, ma ora non pi e forse non un caso se in Italia non mai pi s Jack Williamson nella sua carriera ha scritto ben di meglio che questo romanzetto sconclusionato che mescola viaggi lunari, invasioni aliene, scenari da dopobomba, figli dell invasione , superpoteri misteriosi ed extraterrestri potentissimi per ottenere un risultato piuttosto noioso e sfilacciato, con vari episodi poco o nulla giustificati dalla trama e nella trama.Poteva essere accettabile negli anni 70 quando stato scritto, ma ora non pi e forse non un caso se in Italia non mai pi stato ristampato da allora.P.S per l estensore della quarta di copertina l astronave la Seeker 2, e l ultima missione Apollo stata nel 1972, mentre questo romanzo del 1971

    Excellent classic Sci Fi book by one of the masters Haven t read it in a good 30 years, so I m reading it again after tracking down a copy I wish books like this one were still being authored, instead of the mindless drivel that most modern Sci Fi has become.

    I wrote a review for this book on my blog The Real World According To Sam I came across this book at my university s library It was for sale and as a fan of science fiction I decided to pick it up I d never heard of this book, nor its author, before The book s main character and narrator is Kim Hodian, a Jewish man with a brother he doesn t really get along with, who gets roped into the lives of the moon children, seemingly by accident He is called in by his brother, who is in a pretty high I wrote a review for this book on my blog The Real World According To Sam I came across this book at my university s library It was for sale and as a fan of science fiction I decided to pick it up I d never heard of this book, nor its author, before The book s main character and narrator is Kim Hodian, a Jewish man with a brother he doesn t really get along with, who gets roped into the lives of the moon children, seemingly by accident He is called in by his brother, who is in a pretty high position, and ends up doing publicity jobs writing press releases and the like He is with the moon children over the course of their lives as presented within the book, and he often ends up becoming witness to the things they accomplish As a main character, I can t say I much like him He s of good moral character and is a good enough guy, but he has very little agency His whole role is to relate his complacence within the story so that we understand what major things occurred in the world within the book The moon children were rather fascinating characters I would have preferred to have the story told from one of their perspectives, but at the same time, considering how different they are from humans, I can understand how impossible a task it may be to have them tell their own story in a way that can be understood to humans As a result, we get a very laid back, generally inactive main character The story is very intriguing and it goes by rather quick The pace sometimes rocks off kilter a little, but overall things are pretty seamless until near the end Some parts felt a bit rushed, but that may be as a result of the story being published as a serialized version in a magazine although it is labeled as being slightly different from that version This still feels a bit like a serialized story, than a full novel to a certain degree The ending of the book feels strongly like a 1970s sci fi ending based on the little bit of sci fi I know from the time in film novels This novel also mixes some science with a lot of fiction, as can be expected I mention this because I found many instances in which scientific information was presented and then largely left off to the side for a predominant amount of the novel One major component is mentioned again towards the end, but overall there isn t a lot of science going on, and there is a lotgeometry, to a certain degree I liked this about the book, but I also didn t, in a simultaneously, bizarre and paradoxical manner I like when science is presented, but not left as largely moot to most of the book s happenings, although I see where it may be necessary considering that the narrator is not scientifically inclined Kim is an average, and somewhat self unappreciative person, with very little higher scientific knowledge In some regards he is a bit of a simpleton, particularly when compared to the moon children and the astronauts or other space personnel at the beginning of the novel He isof an emotional, feeling person, than a contemplative one I thought that was an interesting choice considering the patterns I ve known science fiction to follow in what I ve read up to this point I m used to characters having a bitagency, so a narrator of this type is very different I like how much it gives me to contemplate about the story and the kind of story we can get, but I think I still prefer my narrators and characters to have someagency to them Overall, this was a very intriguing read and I m glad that I picked it up I ll definitely be contemplating this one for a while Not because of the events of the story, but because of the elements used to TELL the storythe writing aspects and decisions made for it

    Die Entwicklung der Kinder wird minuti s beschrieben Das wird auf Dauer schon etwas langweilig Es passiert zunehmend abgefahrenes Zeug Hm schon beeindruckend
