    Ballroom of the Skies free read Ô E-book or Kindle E-pub Ballroom of the SkiesThis book was very tough going for meI'm a big fan of John D MacDonald and have at least started the ambitious goal of trying to read his entire published oeuvre in chronological order no lessAs many readers no doubt know John D is best known for his pulpy crime fiction and most notably his Travis McGee series It is those books that really caught my attention and ingratiated him and his writing to meOf course I was surprised to learn that John D did dabble in science fiction with a grand total of three novels I'm in general not especially a sci fi fan beyond the most mainstream original and even preuel Star Wars and original Star Trek Phillip K Dick's Blade Runner is as edgy as my sci fi tastes tend to go and even then I strongly prefer the movie to his original book All that being said I did read John D's first sci fi novel Wine o

    Ballroom of the Skies free read Ô E-book or Kindle E-pub Ballroom of the SkiesWasn't sure where this one was going for a while but the plot turn at the end really made this book for me I'm really starting to appreciate and enjoy 50's science fiction far than contemporary Maybe the ideas were just newer fresher bizarre Not a classic in the most rigid sense but a great and rewarding read nonetheless

    Ballroom of the Skies free read Ô E-book or Kindle E-pub Ballroom of the SkiesIn a career as prolific as MacDonald's there's bound to be some clunkers especially early onAnd this is oneMacDonald is mostly known as a mystery writer but he had an itch to write some science fiction toward the beginning of his career and turned out this one and the earlier Wine of the Dreamers both on the same theme Judging by the afterword of these edition MacDonald wasn't exactly familiar with the genre thinking science fiction necessarily included either b

    Ballroom of the Skies free read Ô E-book or Kindle E-pub Ballroom of the SkiesWhat an endingThis is one of only two excursions into sci fi by JDM or science fantasy as he called it Written in the early 50s it was an exercise to try to explain why the world was so messed up While it starts a bit slowly and strangely I'm willing to bet the ending explanation will surprise you as much as it did me As usual for this fantastic author he'll g

    Ballroom of the Skies free read Ô E-book or Kindle E-pub Ballroom of the SkiesMacDonald expressed some interesting and thought provoking ideas about war and peace and progress What was disappointing for me was the story as a story; I have read roughly a dozen or books by MacDonald not just Travis McGee tales and the storytelling here is the weakest I have read by him

    Ballroom of the Skies free read Ô E-book or Kindle E-pub Ballroom of the SkiesSF novel with a theme fromthe fiftiesMany reflections of ideas and philosophies that were outgrowths of WW II While a contemporary writer would write a different story it will no doubt be retold Perhaps in a way stories like the Matrix reflect a similar idea or Elon Musk’s idea that our lives and civilization are really an elaborate simulaton
