When Worlds CollideWhen Worlds Collide by Philip Wylie

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


I’m cheap and a little depressed, so I’ve been going through old sci-fi from my youth. This is a book I remember really liking as a child. It seemed like the perfect time for me to reread it. It is definitely a book of its time, the 1930's. It includes some very unfortunate terminology towards the Japanese. Given the time it was written, I feel the authors were attempting to be more open-minded about race and gender. They pretty much miss the mark completely. If the reader can completely ignore our current sensibilities, you might enjoy this book. I enjoyed it, but I probably like it in spite of itself. I really liked the idea of humans needing to leave our planet and live on another planet because Earth was going to be destroyed. If you’re as old as me or like really old science fiction, you might enjoy this book.
