    One thought on “Lost Race of Mars”

    1. Read this as a kid many times , and loved it Recently unearthed it when emptying my parents house to go on the market Perfect timing, for my two daughters 8 11 to read A bit outdated now it s set in the year 2017, in a colony on Mars, but still delightful.A wonderful start to a life long love of reading science fiction.

    2. A few days ago I was looking somewhat frantically through the books on the shelves in my closet yes, I have a floor to ceiling bookshelf in my closet for something to read to my son, Sebastian Lost Race of Mars almost fell into my lap I d read it several times as a child myself, and remembered liking it quite a lot I d nearly forgotten about it, but I grabbed it and read it to him.It was written by Robert Silverberg in 1960, and includes some charmingly albeit slightly crude illustrations Sebast [...]

    3. The book is extremely dated, but I enjoyed it when I first read it in elementary school as a wonderful introduction to the sci fi genre.

    4. I love this book It was one of the first sci fi books I ever read Looking back, I now understand why i love anything about Mars and aliens.

    5. I read this as a kid and loved it, but don t remember much about the story I recently unearthed it and would like to read it again.

    6. Please let me love this book Robert Silverberg is one of those authors I can t help but admire He supported himself by writing pulp mostly in the early days This book is a perfect example of that Set in the startling future of 2017, we follow two children and their parents to the Mars Colony which is a somewhat common trip at this point where they set out to see if they can discover life on the red planet They re not disappointed.I absolutely adored the descriptions The idea of what life would b [...]

    7. This was fun I considered giving it four stars, but a significant plotting problem stopped me In the novel, Mars has recently been colonized by humanity, who live under domes and control resource use carefully Into this environment comes Dr Chambers and family Chambers is there to look for evidence that the ancient Martians might still survive evidence of their existence suggests they have been long extinct The colony is reluctant to support such impractical research but grudgingly go along with [...]

    8. I picked this up at the town transfer station because of the author It s a kid s book as the cover clearly illustrates a one night read for a grownup It s kind of fun and RS tries to introduce a few harder sci fi issues into the plot The description of Mars is pretty accurate but for the vegetation and the small animals, neither of which have turned up thus far For that reason it s a bit outdated of course He also over estimates the focus of humanity vis a vis space exploration Too many problems [...]

    9. An interesting story for young readers between the ages of 5 and 8 I read it together out loud with my cousin who is 7 years old at the time of reading and she was fascinated by the story I read it alone as well and found it to be engaging and pleasurable if I established a child like mindset going into the story It doesn t have good reread value on its own merit but could be returned to as a piece of nostalgia if strong memories have been linked with the reading of the book For me, that memory [...]

    10. An entertaining enough read Definitely your standard outsider kids work to fit in and do so while also saving their dad s reputation It is definitely a product of its time don t expect housewife mom to have any role to play other than to gratefully follow dad and support his career she basically disappears for most of the book In fact, don t look for any female role models, though it is a brother sister team at the heart of the story.

    11. Enough science to qualify as science fiction and enough gentle kid adventures to be a good kid s book Silverberg was rather optimistic about the future of manned explorations to Mars in 1960.
