Testament the Holy book doesn't make good sci-fi. It's a good fantasy book, but a very hard read for me. Dick uses too many five dollar words and with inflation $50.00 today. the narration is good.
Using superstition and magic to create an even reading field for 2 short stories.
I always believe a wise man should glance over his sholder before changing lanes. Glance back in history before making the same mistakes or repeating them.
Heinlien removes science of the 1950s, to tell a good story of science fiction, but needed to remove science fact (still too new in a time line and in scope) and uses magic to replace science fact in electrigal grids, electronics of heated plates in picture tubes, voice coils, amplification, circuit boards, etc… Way, way too new in history to make the magic believable back then. But, he took a gamble with his story (1st of it's kind) and got published - won!
Write a story like that today, it would suck big time! He took a gamble, won!
I've never tried to figure out rights from wrongs, too weak or strong, I'm dyslexic with memory disorders and pain from degenerate disc desease. I'm listening to get out of my head and so far his writing style creates religous thoughts for the reader (me) to evaluate which side I should consider. No other writers do this more than him! I'm sorry, i'd rather stick to Isaac Assmov (sorry the spelling) Henlein, A C. Clarke, Alan Dean Foster and many more. They are not easy to read either but by the end of the book the ride worked.
I love this book and I like this writer. When J. J. Abbrams and Lenard Nimoy go to this guy to restart "Star Trek", that must say a lot about this writer. With that in mind, what happens when you start a trilogy and there is only one book recorded out of 3? My problem is with 2 non-recorded books and I'm dyslexic! What do I do and where is there blame to point too?
Go figure I won't, I'm dyslexic!
So far, and the in the galaxy, far far-stuff really works for me in the "Fate of the Jedi" series. I've listen to all of the squeals and I like all of them! Good stuff and I'm hoping more of them will come ASAP!
With Peace and devotion.
