A Martian Odyssey is a science fiction short story by Stanley G. Weinbaum and was originally published in the July 1934 issue of Wonder Stories. The story also saw a sequel 4 months later known as Valley of Dreams. These are the only 2 stories set on Mars by the author.

A Martian Odyssey is a humorous tale that follows an American chemist named Dick Jarvis who sets out to photograph the Martian landscape. Unfortunately for him, his rocket’s engines burn out and he crash lands on the surface of the planet. After landing on the surface, he begins heading north to get to his ship, the Ares.

Along the way, Dick meets a motley crew of aliens, each having a unique appearance and type of speech. The first alien he meets is a bird-like creature named Tweel and after attempting to converse with it, he discovers that it has at least some modicum of intelligence. Tweel stays by Dick’s side for the vast majority of the story and his presence definitely makes it that much more enjoyable. He’s a friendly, and often incredibly goofy creature and he’s definitely one of the highlights of this story.

The story is also narrated entirely by Dick after having returned to the Ares. He’s relaying the entire story to his 3 crew members and he does so in a pretty extravagant way. The way he tells it makes the story almost unbelievable and his crew members often comment on the absurdity of some of the things he tells them. This all adds to this story’s charm though, and it makes the story that much more enjoyable.

The science behind this story is obviously quite outdated, simply because it was released in 1934 and it portrays life on Mars. That shouldn’t dissuade you from giving the story a read though. It may bout scientifically outdated but the entertainment levels make it feel much more modern than it is. The author does a great job of being descriptive yet very easy to understand.

𝗗𝗶𝗱 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝗸𝗻𝗼𝘄: @getlittnow Subscription plans are super affordable ! Have a look.⁣
⁣
They have a monthly, half yearly and annual plan. Each gives you the number of book readings you can do. ⁣
𝗗𝗠 for discount code.⁣
⁣
If you are not sure, you can try the FREE Trial period too. I first did that to get an idea about this platform.⁣
⁣
GetLitt Now, has books for all ages. For older kids and teens, it is always a struggle to find good books. This platform gives them a good number of options. ⁣
⁣
No limit on the books you can borrow at a time. As a #motheroftwo, I love that else its always a struggle to chose one book for each kid. Now I can read many beautiful #books to my toddler and 6 yr old. Once in the Library, you cant decide which book to read from the 300+ books exclusively for kids. We read multiple books in each sitting. ⁣
Older kids, I am sure will just breeze through loads of books. ⁣
⁣
Your #bookreading progress is stored in the system. The children can check the Leaderboard, to see where they stand in the Litt-o-sphere and how many Badges, Manis you gathered and what Level you are on.⁣
Once the Subscription is over, you can resubscribe. ⁣
⁣
I subscribed to the 6 monthly plan with 400 book reads. I am still trying to imagine if my kids will be able to even reach 100/400 books limit ? This #bookblogger mummy hasnt reached that limit even in adult life :D If they do, I will be hopping in joy ;)⁣
⁣
Any questions about GetLitt Now, please DM me. ⁣
Happy to help. ⁣

✨L’attrape-coeur ~ Jerome David Salinger✨
.
• La réflexion •
.
Ce livre date ! J’étais au lycée nous devions le lire pour le cours de français, mais je me souviens de ne pas avoir réussi à le finir tellement je le trouvais chiant !
.
Quinze ans plus tard. J’ai eu le même ressenti, mais cette fois je l’ai fini.
Je l’avoue, j’ai failli abandonner à plus de la moitié du roman, mais heureusement j’ai persisté.
.
Ce que j’ai aimé :
- Savoir qu’on n’est pas seule à se poser des questions sur la vie. - Savoir qu’on n’est pas seule à être maladroit avec les autres, avec la vie.
- Nous avons tous un Holden en nous.
- Grandir c’est dur.
.
Ce que je n’ai pas aimé :
- Le langage parlé du jeune, même dans les années 50 ce n’était pas agréable. Mais comme tout on s’y fait !
- Il m’a fallu plus de la moitié du livre pour y rentrer vraiment et savoir (grâce à vous) qu’il n’allait pas y avoir une fin tragique.
.
.
Un conseil, accrochez vous parce que cette lecture en vaut la peine.
Je comprends mieux l’engouement mondiale de ce roman.

BOOK REVIEW.  Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. ⭐⭐⭐ Well, to be honest, I'm so glad that I am done reading this book! We all know the premise of Frankenstein, but to give a quick synopsis; Victor Frankenstein finds a way to actually make life, if you will, and puts together a large, ugly ,scary looking creature and then after it escapes, he doesn't give it a second thought but goes on with his life. For me, the real villain in this book is Victor Frankenstein himself, which is a very big drama queen, with trembling, fainting, gasps and becoming feverish at every turn. The 'demon' as he calls it, really just wants love and acceptance but because Victor made it so scary looking it will never happen, which was heartbreaking. He wants a partner, someone to live with, but Victor will not acquiesce, so the demon starts taking away Victor's family, as a way to make a point. I have read that Mary Shelley was only 19 when she wrote this and that's the best part of the book. For me, it was a struggle to get through and I had empathy for the poor demon but by half way through, I was disgusted with Victor Frankenstein. ❤ #bookstagram #bookworm #booklover #books #bookphoto #bibliophile #booksbooksbooks #literature #currentlyreading #classicbooks #booknerd #library #tbr #reading #ilovereading #bookaddict #bookphotography #bookaholic #igreads #bookcollection #bookporn #bookish #booksoninstagram #classiclit #bookclub #bookblog #bookobsession #bookpassion #bookshelves

What's your favorite book to movie? One of my favorites is the Three Musketeers (2011). I love the characters and dialogue in the movie, plus the fun steampunk elements. Of course, the movie isn't close to the book, but it is a fun version of the classic.
#storieswithStephSep19 prompt by @stephaniehwarner: raking the leaves/dedicated character. D'Artagnan is definitely a dedicated character!

Edith Wharton’s books are quiet nuanced, witty, smart.  This one won the Pulitzer Prize in 1921.  It is a beautiful look at life among the wealthiest living in NYC.  It is a social commentary with interesting characters.

But so far my favorite Wharton book is Ethan Frome, a tragic novella that made me cry.  The twist at the end!  It really got me.
