Deathworld review Ø 3 review Deathworld The planet was called Pyrrus a strange place where all the beasts plants and natural elements were designed for one specific purpose to. Everything here was deadly to man from the smallest insect to the largest plant Deathworld is basically about a world that wants to kill you at every opportunity Harry Harrison is a dab hand at old school sci fi adventures not a lot of nuances or anything to contemplate after you are done just a ripping yarn and a good time Generally this works for me I seldom look for enlightenment when I am reading for leisure Anyway the most important thing I have to tell you at this point is that this book is in the public domain first published in 1960 and is free to read online or download as an e book or an audiobook links after the reviewThe setting is Pyrrus a habitable but inhospitable human colonized planet with a 2 G gravity and horrendous weather For some reason every life form including plants appears to have it in for humanity The human colonists live in a walled city with sealed off buildings Each colonist is never without a weapon even indoors and always armed to the teeth when they venture outside Through centuries of living in constant danger the people of Pyrrus are all very strong with deadly reflexes and highly skilled with weapons Even so the human population on this planet is dwindling What they need is an outside perspective someone off world to help to find a solution Deathworld is basically just a high octane monster blasting fun with no literary ambition It is fast paced and uite short about 150 pages in the paperback edition there are themes about adjusting to a new environment empathy and tolerance but the emphasis is on the action and the priority is to entertain The protagonist Jason is likable enough but there is not a lot of depth to him the other characters even less so This is fine in a novel this short and fast paced The world building is where this book really shines Pyrrus is a great setting for an old school sci fi adventure with danger and monstrosities lurking in every corner even in a sealed building something can slip through and take your leg off The writing is clear and the descriptions are vivid the dialogue seems somewhat dated clearly a product of its time A free entertaining action packed book what s not to like Go grab a copy todayNotes Download or read online at Project Gutenberg Librivox free audiobook version There are some very nice Illustrations by van Dongen scattered through the book even in the free e book editions Deathworld is actually the first volume of a trilogy followed by the brilliantly titled Deathworld 2 and Deathworld 3 Only the first book is in the public domain and if I remember correctly the remaining volumes are not so great This first book is also a self contained narrative no hanging plot threads or cliffhangers to worry about uotes Hundreds of thousands of years of genetic weeding out have produced things that would give even an electronic brain nightmares Armor plated poisonous claw tipped and fanged mouthed That describes everything that walks flaps or just sits and grows Ever see a plant with teeth that bite I don t think you want to You d have to be on Pyrrus and that means you would be dead within seconds of leaving the ship Two G s don t seem that bad at first Walking reuired the same exertion as would carrying a man of his own weight on his shoulders When Jason lifted his arm to unlatch the door it was heavy as two arms Wasn t it true that both ends of the artistic scale were dominated by simplicity The untutored aborigine made a simple expression of a clear idea and created beauty At the other extreme the sophisticated critic rejected over elaboration and decoration and sought the truthful clarity of uncluttered art At which end of the scale was he looking now Romancing the Werewolf ripping yarn and a good time Generally this works

Deathworld review Ø 3 review Deathworld Ness was murderIt was up to Jason dinAlt interplanetary gambler to discover why Pyrrus had become so hostile during man's brief habitati. Set on the most deadly planet you can imagine where everything from the smallest insect to the largest bird of prey is out to get you and where even the plants have fangs I uite liked it when I first read it in German many years ago Now I read it again for the first time in English and I have to say I m still thrilled to visit planet Pyrrus and its inhabitants The characters haven t lost their charm which comes along as being a little rough sometimes Some technical stuff seems a little outdated now but far from being embarrassing I admit I had a little crush on Meta and although this feeling is long gone she is still my favorite figure What s not to love about a girl who breaks the arm of the men who make unwanted advances to her Although a pulp novel in nature the story has also some finer points Psychological philosophical and ecological themes well worth to think about And where does the hero find the ultimate answer to the most pressing problem view spoilerin a book hide spoiler
