Format: Paperback
This book has it all: rich man with space ship takes girl all over the solar system, fights nazi martians, has aerial battles, and sight sees in other strange places.

Kind of book that you forget yourself in. A good read, not something you will remember for years, but worth reading if you like space opera with weird plots and good writing. Like I do!

Format: Paperback
Captivating story of a Richard Branson type Englishmen, who marries an American girl, who then explores the solar system. They find evidence of past civilizations on the Moon, and then visit Mars. On Mars, they find a race of nationalistic dictatorship-run beings, who are war like and dangerous. Further explorations are taken.

The book is a great read, for the story, characters, it's a great early science fiction, as well as a story about the different cultures on Earth, presented as aliens. Exciting, fun, interesting and instructive! Well recommended!

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Felicity Barrington on October 8, 2009
Format: Paperback
A remarkable early interplanetary science fiction novel in which a wealthy honeymoon couple travel in a spacecraft powered by the 'R-force,' through the solar system, visiting the Earth's nearly lifeless moon and discovering exciting archeological remains, then visit the scientifically advanced, but warlike humanoid Martians as well as others.

Although written in 1900, the Martians are almost Nazi like, fascist beings. This pre-dates Hitler, and could have been read by early Nazi's where were fascinated by science fiction, fantasy and the occult.

There are other aliens who are `good' too. However, the Martians are the most interesting, and extremely `Germanic' - great book for either science fiction fans or those interested in the early history of fascist's found in literature.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It was fascinating reading a sci-fi work from that long ago (ca. 1900), and seeing what at least this author saw as possible in the cosmos. Although it was a rocky read at first, as the formal language of the day ands the author's style were difficult to get used to, I eventually got into the book more enthusiastically, and overall enjoyed the novel. I would recommend it to any die hard reader of this genre.
