A cheesy story with cheesy characters and cheesy dialog about a threat to the Earth. The science is grade-school silly, and the dialog is, well...cheesy.
Nevertheless, the reader's interest is held well enough, and there is somewhat of a twist at the end. Worth a read, but keep expectations low.
This is what I call an adventure story. It's like those written by Jules Verne, in which the characters explore an exotic world, but there is no particular point or plot to the story. In Mad Planet, a future Earth is described in which all the creatures we know have grown to 10x or more their original size (plant life as well). Man, strangely enough, has not grown with them. The entire story is just an essay about a man traipsing about this world. Normally, I might give something like this 2 stars, but the writing is tidy and lacking melodrama, so I'm being generous.
A whimsical tale that, in the end, is totally pointless. Much build-up surrounds a mysterious TV set an apparent time warp, and some unique sea shells. In the end, nothing is resolved or properly explained, and the story comes to an abrupt halt in what the author must have thought was a clever ending. In a word, amateurish.
This is a silly story based on silly science, and it was intentionally written that way. It's written well enough, given the intentions. A decent read, but don't get your hopes too high.
