Bad writing! June 24, - Published on Amazon. Verified Purchase. Good premise but bad writing, with lots of grammatical and word errors and bad metaphors. It takes a lot of talent and arrogance to take a classic well-constructed story and then make fun of it in a condescending manner.

Jules Verne is turning over and died another death in this taking of his novel and abilities and subverting it to provide such an appallingly written piece of bad science fiction! March 8, - Published on Amazon. So far, really good. I'm about 4 chapters in. I had actually ordered this when I was drunk and I completely forgot about it until it arrived.
I would recommend shopping like that. It's like Christmas, except I'm not crying from relief when it's over. January 21, - Published on Amazon.
I start Robert's novels, but it may take me months to finish them. There is a current or theme of transcendence that runs through this novel that makes it more than a techno hard science adventure. February 8, - Published on Amazon.
Twenty Trillion Leagues Under the Sea by Adam Roberts, Mahendra Singh - apgeyhorno.ml
I applaud the interest in writing a science fiction novel with some actual philosophy behind it, but it is so poorly executed that it is almost unreadable. It ends abruptly, when the author has apparently run out of ideas I have thoroughly enjoyed Roberts' other work but this should be avoided at all cost. May 18, - Published on Amazon. Roberts is one of the most knowledgeable and most clever SF writers around.
This appears to be a period piece set in France but also written as if it were written by a French SF author in Incidentally the name "Plongeur" means "diver" in French but it's also the name of the very first submarine in the world built by the French in to be propelled by mechanical power.
The story that Roberts creates manages to be more mind bending and imaginative than Verne's novel must have been ish years ago. There is a lot to like with this book, we've got a wonderfully rich mix of characters within the crew which the author makes excellent use of to create a drama based on hidden agendas, suspicion and just plain awkwardness and pig-headedness - a great example of how not to cope under pressure and in close confinement.

As mentioned above there is also a very imaginative use of setting and plot devices which manage to come across as almost fantastic in nature rather than science fiction - very much like Verne's own imaginings. Twenty Trillion Leagues Under the Sea combines the authors serious novels with his parodies.
