Review: Non-Stop


Non-Stop
Non-Stop by Brian W. Aldiss
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Written in 1958, this 1976 reissue of Brian Aldiss’ first novel shows him at his best. The action pulls the reader through what we would now consider technical implausibilities, with the inventive zest of a fresh writer making his mark on the genre.
The protagonist, Roy, leaves a brutish, inward-looking existence of his tribe. In doing so he is thrown into a series of events that paint a strange picture of the world about him; not one would would readily recognise. He encounters different human tribes, some are more advanced. There are puzzles, however; why do some grow to a great size? Others are suspected of being aliens, can that be true? Who are all these tribes? The answers connect to a central mystery that Roy begins to unravel.
What he discovers changes his view of everything he believed in.
