Do you like science fiction novels? If so what kind?
There are various kinds of science fiction. Some are all about space wars. Others are about the future of earth. Some are more geared to building alien worlds and their struggles. There are more. Which ones do you like the most?
Unfortunately, the majority of science fiction novels, this century, are not worth reading. When it comes to Science Fiction nobody has beaten the French novelist JULES VERNE. I still have copies of his immortal works:
"AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS", "FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON" AND "2,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA".
These novels helped scientists create machines that eventually achieved the amazing performances he visualized in the year 1856. IMAGINATION IS AN ESSENTIAL STARTING POINT FOR EVERY INVENTOR.
I rather Science Fiction movies. Because they potentially can come true and they transport you to another World which you cannot travel to otherwise. On that note, I think Aliens was one of the best Sci Fi movies and last Star war movies one of worst
It depends. What is science fiction - merely a story set in the future or is it when science is intrinsic to the story?
I like Heinlein, Asimov and other 'classic' authors. I also like Anne McCaffrey as her stories deal more with character, than plot (although the plot is important too).
I do not enjoy stories that concentrate on the 'science' part of science fiction, and discount the 'fiction' part.
Hi, I love any kind of book and not only science fiction. Lately, I have read some science fiction novels that were not good, in my view. Indeed, I think that also a science fiction story must be consistent and realistic. Maybe I am saying this because I am a professional book reviewer and book promoter, but now I can't say what kind of science fiction novel I love, I still have to find the best science fiction book.
