    Kindle Brian W. Aldiss Ì Ì Hothouse eBook á hothouse mobile, Hothouse MOBIMillions of years into the future the Earth is tidally locked with the sun and the sunny side is dominated by a banyan tree of mind boggling size Mile wide plant spiders crawl from the Earth to the moon on vast webs As for man he is now a foot and a half high green and running scared all the timeI got this from Netgalley I was pretty conflicted about this book On one hand I love the setting Come on A far future earth dominated by colossal plants with giant spiders crawling from the earth to the moon and back Telepathic mushrooms Flying plants Giant insects What's not to like?Well there isn't much of a plot to speak of The story starts with one band of humans moves on to the kids they leave behind when they Go Up and then follows two of them I think some of this is due to the book being a patchwork of several of Aldiss' stories set on the Hothouse earthStill it's not without its charms There's a wackiness to it that I enjoyed It reminded me of P

Aldiss Ì Ì Hothouse eBook á hothouse mobile, Hothouse MOBII seldom reread books because there are too many interesting unread books in the world to catch up with but some books just haunt me demanding to be reread because I have forgotten too many details I was walking around in a lush garden and I was reminded of this book and felt the need to reread it This book is set on a far future Earth near the end of its existence the

    Kindle Brian W. Aldiss Ì Ì Hothouse eBook á hothouse mobile, Hothouse MOBIAfter reaching the halfway mark I threw this book down you can read later why only to pick it up again because 1 I think it unfair when someone ratesreviews a book they haven't finished as I have never felt that was a fair way to judge a book potentially destroying an author's chance to reach an audience perhaps even ruining their career and 2 This was a HUGO AWARD WINNING BOOK and I strongly believed there must have been a good reason whyBut I didn't follow my own rules of doing things and thus originally rated it a 2 and reviewed it in full I wanted so badly to like it believing it had several things going for itHere are the 5 reasons why I felt it would be an awesome read1 It's set in the future in which the Earth's elliptical rotation around the sun has come to a complete standstill with the moon's orbit around the Earth MIA as well One half of the Earth is forever caught in the ful

    Kindle Brian W. Aldiss Ì Ì Hothouse eBook á hothouse mobile, Hothouse MOBII was surprised how much I liked this riot of imagination of post humans clinging to survival in a world where plants have taken over Millions of years from now when the sun has gotten hotter and the earth’s rotation is locked to keep one side always in its rays the kingdom of plants has outcompeted animals for all the niches evolving carnivorous and motile forms of seeming infinite variety Humans have adapted

    Kindle Brian W. Aldiss Ì Ì Hothouse eBook á hothouse mobile, Hothouse MOBIThere is a trick to beginning reviews and it's a pity that I've never learnt itMy early impression reading this 1960 science fiction novel set on Earth in a far future when our plant's rotation has stalled and weird dynamic forms of vegetable life are dominant leaving the rest tiny humans wasps termites and a few others to battle on as best they can was to feel the similarities with J G Ballard's The Drowned World Both imagine a future world that in some ways is similar to the prehistoric past the Jungian? notion of an inherited species memory is important in both and the importance of the time that both authors spent in the Far East Ballard as a boy Aldiss if I remember correctly as part of his military service is not something that you have to lift s

    Kindle Brian W. Aldiss Ì Ì Hothouse eBook á hothouse mobile, Hothouse MOBII'm really impressed with this 1962 classic I was fully prepared to assume it would be outdated and skimpy on the characters but what I actually got was a thought provoking tale that was so heavy on the worldbuilding that the worldbuilding was like three or four characters in its own rightI mean you know its some serious science fiction if we're transported a billion years in the future where men and women are a fifth our current size where the earth and the moon are locked to constantly face the sun and the world had devolved and mixed and blurred lines between animals and vegetables The prose was than strong enough to prevent such a monstrosity of a novel from collapsing filled with tantalizing images of truly odd creatures and situations I can barely guess
