      Brunner is an overlooked author, IMO He managed a very tight mystery with some really interesting tech social issues in our space faring future Great conspiracy theory, too No skimming allowed, though He makes ever word count The social issues, schisms in society brought on by our expansion, were a bit of a stretch, unfortunately Still, that was just one detail I had to swallow everything else fell into place well.

      John Brunner 1934 1995 was a British science fiction writer who wrote some of the best stuff in the field One of my favorite of all SF books is one of his Times Without Number which got me interested in alternate history This one is from 1967 and like the best of Brunner deals with ideas I like his ideas and his writing style but the universe he builds here is very undeveloped After all, it s short 127 pgs in the ACE pb edition It made for a super fast read, but, really, left me wanting Ray Mal [...]

      review of John Brunner s Born Under Mars by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE February 25, 2013 This is the 5th Brunner bk I ve read reviewed in quick succession The 1st 4 were The World Swappers book show 23 , Times Without Number book show 63 , The Whole Man book show 86 , The Long Result book show 31 I ve gone from being someone who was vaguely interested in his work to someone intending to read as much of it as I can find affordably, ie Given that he wrote something like 97 bks, that shd keep me bu [...]

      I had little in the way of expectations for this book and it managed to exceed these This isn t a long novel, but it still managed to feel stretched out in various places The first half of the book is the much better half, as a space engineer from Mars returns home under less than ideal conditions and suddenly finds himself a wanted man merely because of the ship he worked on or so it seems We have a mystery here that managed to disappoint in the second half of the work This is mostly a future s [...]

      Ray Mallin, born and raised on Mars, gets caught up in a conflict between 2 branches of humanity that had colonized different star systems.

    6. Marianne says:

      A lone Mars born man gets entangled in a multi faction drama, from sheer luck.I like the ideas of the factions And the idea behind the plot But it felt like there could have been depth to the story The danger was trivialized early in the book, and that dulled the drama.I liked the style of writing, and it sounds like other books by this author are worth checking out.

    7. Data says:

      A fine little book about the future of the human race Along the lines of Asimov s Foundation series, but just a bite sized chunk, instead of the whole pie A personal tale, without a huge cast of characters to bog you down John Brunner s tale of a few weeks in the life of Ray Mallin addresses a potential solution to one problem facing humanity in the future.

    8. Peter says:

      Quick read, but really surprisingly involving The focus here is on the cultural differences between two branches of humanity, with a citizen of Mars being the man in the middle Not one of his best books, but even so, mediocre Brunner is better than some other writer s best work.

    9. Mike says:

      I don t know what to make of this book Not a bad story, but nothing outstanding Couldn t really identify with the characters which might not have helped I think its was okay about summed it up for me.

    10. Thomas says:

      This book is definitely a creature of its time It bears all the hallmarks of 1960s science fiction magazine fiction I don t know whether it started out that way or not but I know that Brunner did a lot of magazine writing The style shows it.

    11. Lera says:

      An easy read, but with a dated feel, and not as much humour as some of Brunner s work The underlying premise on genetics and societal evolution is disappointing Had previously read, but sieve like memory forgot the plot.

    12. gazoo says:

      the only thing interesting about this novel was the cover i have the early edition thank mars it was only 127 pages.

    13. Charles says:

      Pretty good Some of Brunner s stuff didn t have a lot of adventure in it but this one did.

    14. John says:

      Grade D
