Reviews by Barry

The Red Planet

by William J. Locke

A fascinating look into another time and the more simple, but far from simplistic, patriotism that characterized WW1 Britain. It is far from ironic in its treatment of the war fervor but still manages a nuanced approach.

There are a number of characters that revolve around the main character and the story focuses on his relationships with them.

The books is much slower to get going than most 21st century readers accustomed to but it is more than worth it in the end.
