This wanna-be sci-fi has religious implications at the end. A very poor excuse for science fiction.
Carl Heerwagen’s book reviews
I found this rather entertaining and quaint. It is based on old science and theories of the nineteenth century.
If most authors have a book they regretted. This one should have been.
This was a common theme in science fiction at the end of the 19th century. The Hollow Earth Theory. I found it a rather good book but very dated.
I found the book dated and the science awful even for its time. The author forgot about inertia and g-forces. Such acceleration would have killed them. As the old saying goes. Those who can't do, teach. And John Campbell was a great teacher.
I found it rather a very nonsensical line of garbage. Trying to be a stupid text adventure with a CEO trying to find his girl? Grabbing at straws this story does.
This story blows chunks. Religious preaching in science fiction form. At least with Burroughs we get a better way to get to mars.
