    epub à The Blue Star ¶ Mass Market Paperback The Blue StarThe core of the story as outlined in a clunky framing device is a thought experiment What would happen if you limit scientific progress and replace it with a corresponding development of 'psychicspiritual' nature that is attached to women but restricted by social s? What would society look like?It forms a seed crystal at the center There

    epub à The Blue Star ¶ Mass Market Paperback The Blue StarI read “The Blue Star” because I recently completed a full set of the Ballantine Adult Fantasy Series From the early 1970s “The Blue Star” was the first novel in the series and was originally published in 1952 My rating is really like a 35 but I feel compelled to rate this higher because I think some other reviewers are rating it low for fairly trivial reasons First off it starts with a frame narrative that while unnecessary is only about 5 or 6 pages total and doesn’t really take anything away from the main plot; I actually enjoyed it Second while Pratt is certainly not the most engaging prose stylist out there he is pretty good—much better than a lot of other fantasy writers who in my experience tend to go a little or a lot over the top with either flowery diction or try for Robert E Howard style raw energy Pratt on the other hand has an understated “British” style despite being American that might clash with some readers’ idea of how “fantasy” is supp

    epub à The Blue Star ¶ Mass Market Paperback The Blue StarAn odd early fantasy appearing on Gygax's Appendix NSo The Blue Star is one of those odd old fantasy novels that predates the birth of modern fantasy after Tolkien it has some of the odd conventions that tended to appear in such early fantasy such as the framing scenes at the very beginning and ending of the novel in which people

    epub à The Blue Star ¶ Mass Market Paperback The Blue StarTime has not been kind I fear to Fletcher Pratt’s The Blue Star After thoroughly enjoying The Compleat Enchanter I was disappointed by how little I enjoyed The Blue Star The plot slows down and speeds up at unpredictable intervals Most jarring is the book’s depiction of romance which by modern standards sounds a whole lot like date rapeIt also d

    epub à The Blue Star ¶ Mass Market Paperback The Blue StarThe book starts off very well and is very engaging but it sadly gets lost in a very convoluted and unfleshed out story with characters that are neither relatable nor believable


  • Zharel Anger

    epub à The Blue Star ¶ Mass Market Paperback The Blue StarThe Blue Star is a jarring unsettling novel dominated with political and religious Game of Thrones type intrigues and with a layered and twisted plot that does not read like modern fantasy The world is an impressive complex build The characters are flawed many unlikeable but some like Lalette are sympathetic and endearing The relations between characters contain all the sexism a

    epub à The Blue Star ¶ Mass Market Paperback The Blue Starread as part of my Appendix N projectAs some other reviewers have mentioned this one was a little hard to get through; every character is flawed in some way that basically precludes your rooting for or even caring much about them and though the world is worked out in high detail it can feel a little academic at times Though I'm all for thoughtful fantasy that goes in a different direction and there were a lot of directions pre Tolkien I found this drier and less enjoyable than the other entries on the Appendix N list But I have always enjoyed Pratt's work with de Camp so I will probably wind up reading his only other solo epic fantasy The Well of the Unicorn at some point

    epub à The Blue Star ¶ Mass Market Paperback The Blue StarThis was an absolute slog of a book Full disclosure I only read half of the book before I had to put it down The story hasn't aged well at all with some ideals coming across as either egregious or downright insulting Being a somewhat hard to find novel I was excited to find it as part of my Appendix N read through The plot meanders along with little urgency even as the characters are trying to make an escape from capture I'm sure the only reason this novel is remembered is due to it's inclusion in Gygax's Appendix N Otherwise this would have become yet another dust collector in used bookstores across the country
