The reason for this is not made clear but the religion they have adopted has roots in Freudian psychology. I found it especially good at conveying how dark, ancient and confined the world is for the characters. Was the Ship theory mere idle speculation fit only for children and old women — or was the world not a world at all, but a container moving between worlds? briab

But oa still fun and as the title suggests, non-stop.

Others are suspected of being aliens, can that be true? Set aboard a returning colonisation ladiss, the original inhabitants have been decimated by a contaminant and descendants of the few survivors have evolved and forgotten all but a few remnants of their origins.

The characters have another central flaw, which is that they matter very little to the story. This is one of those stories where there are no tangential brizn, rather, every single character introduced becomes an important character brought up multiple times throughout the narrative. There are legends of Giants, and indeed, Giants are encountered and some killed.

It might not be one of my ‘favorites’, but it was still an interesting read; I’ll be generous and round it up to three stars. The characters remain shallow and undeveloped, occasionally wrecked by displays of emotion nae one reason or another, but none of them feel like real people at any point. Thi This was Aldiss’ first novel.

Some good ideas but I found the writing to be lackluster and occasionally annoying. They harnessed the mind-meld powers of other mammals, used moths as spies, and started building their own civilization from the detritus of the dizzies. An oldie that’s uneven but nevertheless readable because it’s fun. You’ll question what you have read and you could read it again to see where the hidden signs were.

Characters suddenly making lifechanging decisions with unclear motivation, conveniently bruan true love, dialog that doesn’t flow well, that kind of thing.

I don’t normally read sci fi but this is reputed to be a classic of the genre and so I wstelar a copy. The plot was actually quite good, but due to the lack of stylistic compatibility I couldn’t even appreciate it. If we choose to exist in a world without FTL travel, then how do you get between the stars? There are, however, some clever sections where the actions of the main characters are put into a new light by what they’ve learned of their circumstances and the “invading” characters.


Aldiss’ prose is rich and immersive, his characterisation is convincing and the story compelling. But while the novel as a whole doesn’t fulfil the potential seen in the opening pages, it remains a good piece of sci fi with for the most part well written prose and an intriguing plot. The answers connect to a central mystery that Roy begins to unravel.

Where it falls down is in its rambling. I also enjoyed the bonus weirdness of the rats and moths, despite their essential pointlessness.
