Adored for his innovative literary techniques, evocative plots and irresistible characters, he became a Grand Master of Science Fiction in The book is amazing and one of the better sci fi classics I have read.
Complain, the main character, changes the most in the story. This edition had apparently been recently updated by the author, estelarr might explain why a book written before space travel was science reality seemed so up-to-date. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
La nave estelar by Brian W. Aldiss (2 star ratings)
I don’t normally read sci fi but this is reputed to be a classic of the genre and so I bought a copy. The writing is incredible and like most older literature it isn’t a quick read.
Refresh and try again. I don’t mind a cliffhanger, but this one feels just as if the author ran out of ink mid-scene. The concept is good, the world isn’t. The inconsistency and wasted opportunity becomes infuriating after a while. I didn’t want a happy ending for them, because they were that unlikeable.
A new form disease, A Nine Days Ague derived from the planet killed a lot of people in the ship. The best place to hide something is in plain sight. And this has no bearing on any of the rest plot, before or after, but is the first of many more WTF moments.
Instead, my edition totals efficient pages in length, and leaves the reader clamoring for more. Some good ideas but I found the writing to be lackluster and occasionally annoying.

I like some of his other stuff. The plot twist was a nice surprise, but not too surprising. I want the film version or a Tv show version now, maybe a modern Twilight Zone could adapt this for the modern audience. Non-Stop — December — spoiler free.
What is going on with the apparently intelligent rats who occupy some areas of the Ship? Complain with his friends and accomplices finds the Giants lair and their mysterious weapon that can melt any metal.

Paul Lynch rated it it was ok May 05, Rather, he has done such a notable job of creating a civilization, and navr, and methods of thought, and an environment in which they live, that we are eager to explore it further, in Brian Aldiss could have made his novel, Non-Stop, pages in length, and still barely scratched the surface of the world aldise created. However, they are ruthless: Every tribe has its own rules and canons. Five adventurers set out to explore a dungeon, some die and get replaced, they meet strange creatures and strange cultures and everything goes to hell just as they arrive.
They are in the ship not to kill the tribes but to help them. And the characterizations are fairly lame. It’s a little uncomfortable with what it’s supposed to be. Jolly fstelar romp around in a lost spaceship where everything’s gone to pot.
IT IS though scifi in its most classic sense there are lush dangerous jungles! It did strongly remind me of Heinlein’s Orphans of the Sky in that it involves a multi-generational starship where “something happens” that decimates the crew and the survivors form various societies [for lack of a better word], religions, and trappings of civilization, culminating in some kind of deadly struggle for control of “the World” [ship].
I thought that was a clever idea, and it fully explained why “normal” humans looked like giants [most humans are now six feet or taller, apparently, and it is hard to find any humans short enough to live amongst the Ship Dwellers as fellow inhabitants]. James Ward says that Non-Stop was one of the inspirations for Metamorphosis Alphaand the similarity is obvious though not quite so obvious as Orphans of the Skywhich supposedly was not an inspiration.
There are starship troopers in this book, sort of, but they are nothing like Sarah Brightman.
They harnessed the mind-meld powers of other mammals, used moths as spies, and started building their own civilization from the detritus of the dizzies. One of the last few books I read was Dark Matter by Blake Briann that twist and turned into something very clever. Not only because I read this on someone’s favorite list, but also because when I started reading I thought that it was going to be really good.
Almost twenty years older than Orphans and though improved, still messed, cacophonic. Miri rated it it was ok Oct 01, No negative emotions are held back; only positive thoughts and emotions are brizn in check. The book has a pulpy nature but at its core it was built for a core diehard bruan.
Upon arriving in the Sol System, humans had put it in orbit around the Earth in hopes of one day bringing the survivors down to the Earth’s surface so they could live.
Satire or not, I don’t think this stuff got popular until years after this book was written. This is the second novel by Aldiss I have read.
