Red Planet
Red Planet
by Robert A. Heinlein
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.55

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just Sci-Fi, 19 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Red Planet (Paperback)
I read this book when I was about 12 and really enjoyed it. The language is simple, I felt like I could empathise with the protagonist and, above all, it was a great adventure story.

However, it is far from just a kids' book. There are some underlying themes that really resonate with modern society and valid questions raised about the political future of mankind should we ever colonise other planets. It examines the dangers of commercial involvement in space and extra-terrestrial colonisation. Red Planet even has some socio-historical value to it as well. One thing I found particularly interesting was the juxtaposition of Heinlein's native 1950s suburban American society and attitudes superimposed on a civilisation that exists in our distant future.

Give it a go, it's an interesting read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still waiting to use it, 30 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This gun is nicely designed and weighted, the Move controller fits it perfectly. Unfortunately it was utterly useless for the game I bought it to use with (Resident Evil 5). As it's not worth a lot I'm going to keep it in the hope that soon there will be a decent game compatible with it. Perhaps GoldenEye...

No problem with this product at all as it worked straight away. Seller provided prompt delivery for a good price, much better than going straight to Dell. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something different..., 30 Oct. 2011

Something of the LCD Soundsystem about it, but without the arrogance. Some fantastic beats coupled with a REAL vocal - warts 'n' all. Love it.

Absolutely fantastic series - had me in fits for the most part. Some absolute genius touches and the use of celebrities is also brilliant. Especially the French pen-friend - just so funny! MERDE!

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Great, 7 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Great Escape (Audio CD)
I bought this album YEARS ago and lost it... I picked it up again and it is still exceptional. A fantastic piece of pure Blur, social satire and fantastic tunes, with a little touch of madness. It can be a bit of a grower but it's worth every listen.
