A Martian Odyssey

by Stanley Grauman Weinbaum

A fast-paced, beautifully written sci fi story, full of insight, humor, and imagination. As good a read today as when it was written... it certainly passes the test of time. A must read for any sci fi enthusiast.

Excellently written and engaging story. It immersed me in a nightmarish world of violence and devastated hopes. Each dramatic event drags you further into the landscape. When I finally put the book down, I found part of me remained in that landscape for a long time.

It was beautifully written and a very insightful story, delving into the meaning of freedom and what it does to a person when those freedoms we take for granted are ripped away. Also begs the question how free are any of us really? On some levels the character finds himself more free on the island than when he lived in "society". But when all is said and done it is a journey into unbearable lawlesness. Fantastic read!
