Planet Plane Characters ï E-book, or Kindle E-pub Aircraft designer Dale Currance undertakes a journey to Mars in an effort to capture the prize being offered to the first man to complete an interplanetary journey but a female stowaway throws his plans into disarrayAn international priz. Reading a John Wyndham novel has never left me disappointed but before reading Stowaway to Mars I was made aware that it had a much lower rating than some of his better known books such as Day of the Triffids Chrysalids and The Kraken Wakes It is worth noting that this did lower my expectations and uite possibly this contributed to my surprise enjoyment of the story It is important to take two caveats into consideration before you read this book Firstly it was written in the 1930 s This is imperative to understanding some of the sexism and misogyny that you will encounter It was definitely a different time and if you can take that with a pinch of salt you might enjoy the book as much as I did In fact some of the outright sexist remarks gave me the best laughs I ve ever had from a Wyndham novel Secondly another point to take into account is that this was one of Wyndham s first novels He was still formulating his style It still has all of his usual trademark outlandish kooky premises but it s never going to be a universal classic in the same vein as the titles I mentioned earlier That being said I did think the story touched on two fundamental points that were I m sure highly pioneering for the time The whole concept of machines and automation and man s place alongside them is an integral theme of the narrative and it really fascinated me that people in the 1930 s were just as apprehensive about our role in a technologically advanced world as we are today Machines taking over and rendering man obsolete is a concept that has troubles big thinkers for much longer than I had imaginedThe second point that I found poignant was the idea that our uest for knowledge and our ultimate survival will one day grind to a shuddering halt Drawing parallels between our thriving planet with it s abundant lifeforms and natural albeit it slowly depleting resources and that of Mars on its last legs was a great device to drive home the concept of humanity s fragility so often dismissed by man s arroganceI have no option but to give this book a 5 star rating as it fulfilled all my criteria for a good book It made me laugh I couldn t put it down and it left me with a myriad of lingering thoughts that inspired me to even write a review on Goodreads That being said Wyndham is my favourite author
