    1. We scientists have been responsible for many of the world s ills for a longtime We ve failed to understand that science moves fast, it is revolutionary, while the human mind is slow, evolutionary As a result, we have a gap of thousands of years between scientific achievement and the human capacity to use it wisely Dr Dawson p 144 The Big Eye was written by Max Ehrlich in 1949 about the futuree near future of 1960 In Ehrlich s vision, mankind has learned very little from the two world wars of its [...]


    2. The Big Eye was published in 1949 and was set in the near future world of 1960, which learns that the world is going to end on Christmas Day in 1962 The narrative gets a bit preachy at times that makes the plot lag a bit, but it s a good story and I especially liked the optimistic message that mankind might pull together in the face of catastrophe Ehrlich, who wrote many of the best Sherlock Holmes radio scripts, succeeds in pulling off a surprise ending that would have been right at home in an [...]


    3. This is a book with a message, and because Ehrlich is pounding so hard on that message, it doesn t leave any space for a decent or exciting story A famous astronomer discovers that a new star in the sky is actually a meteor that will get closer and closer and utterly destroy all life on Earth in a fatal collision As a result of this unavoidable fact, the nuclear war that was about to break out is called off and world peace is declared All armies are decommissioned and everybody is very nice to e [...]


    4. This one is pretty bad Much of my science fiction reading has been of pretty bad books because of my selection criteria Although knowledge of the author or of content counts if available, price trumps all I found this thing while prowling used bookstores for stuff to read during a break from school Written in 1949, it is set in the near future, 1960 The entertainment value will probably increase as this future recedes into the past.


    5. One of the first science fiction novels I ever read, as a kid in grade school I particularly like the claustrophobic atmosphere evoked in the early part of the book, as the US and USSR stand poised on the verge of nuclear war The ending of the book is kind of preachy, but I have always enjoyed it nonetheless.


    6. i can t rate this book i am far to emotionally attached to be objective i know it is B grade, but it was the first sci fi i ever read for a farm kid growing up in the bush of Northern Ontario, with limited exposure to the bigger picture, discovering the sci fi genre was revolutionary reading this book literally changed my life.


    7. Maybe the first real science fiction I ever read, which I actually read immediately after the end of the Cold War I knew it was pulpy and cheesy, but I enjoyed pulpy and cheesy even then The message was stark and very real for its time, and there was no veiling of it Not a whole lot of layers here Just a sledgehammer drilling its agenda across.




    8. I stopped at about page 110 It s only about 170 pages and ended up not being able to pick it up again for a week I tried to go back to it and just didn t care any.
