This review is from: This Purple Earth (A sci-fi classic!) (Kindle Edition)
This book contains the pontificasious ramblings of an author who seems to be passing through the gates of hell while he's going insane. The tedious, ponderous, punishing, storyline repetitiveness makes this supposed sci/fi classic a complete mess. The only redeeming feature being the exceptional wordsmithery and even that is subtly undermined by the first person narrative written with archaic phrasing and punctuation. I get mad every time I think about the 3 wasted days I spent trudging through the stilted, staccato like, pacing hoping I could conjure up a reason for reading this catastrophic post apocolyptic description of Hell...over and over and over!!!
