Book Review: A Plunge Into Space

I got this book from Singularity: Save the Sci-fi. If you're a fan of classic science fiction, a membership in Singularity is a worthwhile investment!

A Plunge Into Space
A Plunge Into Space by Robert Cromie
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book is not meant to be a comedy, but it's absolutely hilarious in its use of outdated tropes (no doubt cutting edge at the time it was written) and Victorian age prejudices regarding class, race, and sex. If you aren't a fan of classic sci-fi, I doubt you'll enjoy it. I am, and I did, but more as a curious historical artefact than as a story in its own right.
