book: Starship

Brian Aldiss. Starship. Signet, 1960 (originally published 1959). 160 pages.

It’s an entertaining adventure, but the mystery aspects don’t work as well as they could. It’s interesting to try to figure out exactly what’s going on as you read, but unfortunately the ending doesn’t deliver anything better than what you’ll have thought up on your own.

7/10 (Good).

    One get’s the feeling that the ending is the work of the editor — the last few paragraphs are kind of pasted on abruptly and shoddily…

    And, it is the 50s…. just think of the normal pulp fiction crud…. haha
