A Note About the Format of Redshirts

Please try again later. Redshirts, which could have been called Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Hijack the Ship to Cuba, features an endearing premise that Scalzi admits in these same pages has been visited before by other authors in a variety of media, that a character in a work of fiction gains awareness of the “Narrative” dictating their actions, and tries to understand or change their fate.

If that isn’t meta enough for you, the later sections of the book only take this to excess. This book was published by Tor. Will Scalzi mention the anonymous browsing network Tor in his books by Tor? You bet he does.

It’s that kind of book. By way of clarification I should first retract “bad”. Redshirts is not bad, not even parts of Redshirts is bad. Scalzi spends the entirety of Coda I expressing the difference between good, bad and just redshirtts, which I partially agree with, but which unfortunately is an awkward meta conversation to have in a book that has some of the same issues it brings up.

Bad is the show the characters are in.

A large part of Redshirts is just uninspired. Many of the other 3-star reviews here have got it right. If the book consists of a main novel with three acts, followed by three extended codas really just connected short storiesand if I were appraising these each separately, I would have to put it like this: First act is great, everything working together from humor to tempo.

Second act, really pretty competant, but not satisfying, if only because it is here that you see everything that is going to happen in the last third of the book and how that’s going to resolve, and that is the weakest section of the entire thing including the last three stories. The pacing is perfect in the first part, drags in the second, and is rushed in the third. Even the humor seems to work better in the beginning than the end.

The only thing that’s constant is the quality of the dialogue. It is a quick read, though. If you enjoyed at least the first part, you’ll likely finish it in a single sitting.

The codas are even more uneven, but the most problematic thing about them is each follows characters introduced in the last third of the book, some of them only having a couple of lines. It is awkward for characters like that to each have their own short story – and really these are all the codas of their stories. It isn’t “a novel with three codas” as in codas to the novel, the codas are caps on the ends of three individual but interconnected stories whose first parts are either present in the novel proper or merely inferred.

Coda I is separate from the others because it doesn’t exist to give us closure or detail about its principal character.

It exists to discuss the bad name SF has acquired for itself in television over the last fifty years or so. It is an especially unfortunate problem to have since we live in an age where smarter, tighter audiences are starting to go looking to television for quality and films and books are becoming broader and dumber something I believe is equal fault viewers, exec groupthink, and because challenging scripts play poorly when subbed in Southeast Asia, but that’s getting off the point.

In fact all of Coda I is off the point, other than being conceived as a humor piece, and I really think should have been omitted. It is ojhn the complex discussion it should have been about where SF is going and why, nor does it give us anything useful or new about its principal character.

I would have been much happier if Scalzi had redshirtts the character out of it and written an updated multimedia counterpart to Michael Swanwick’s A User’s Guide to the Postmoderns. Definitely the most ‘meta’ scalz the sections yes, I use Scrivener, too, man, probably shouldn’t have compiled this part.

Coda II was my least favorite.

It has nothing much to say, and what it does have to sclzi I really don’t think is worth saying. In keeping with the meta-theme, Coda II actually tells you it has nothing to say that you haven’t already heard from overbearing relatives, in almost those words, no less.

‘Redshirts’: A Love Letter To Sci-Fi Fans

The plot of Coda III, which has the most minor character in the entire book as its subject, is the most nonsensical and belief-unsuspending section, and this beats out even a fictional unvierse co-existing with a fictional universe co-existing with a ‘real’-er one, flying a ship into a black hole, wishing bits of a narrative redshitrs place, and living like a yeti in a tunnel for years with a portable potty as your only friend.

The end wraps up nicely.

It is a bittersweet, satisfying conclusion that makes you go “Awww. This book is so short, that it’s honestly still a fine introduction redxhirts the author.

The central idea and redshkrts proper work well enough that I don’t see how it will really turn anyone away who would be interested in his more well-received titles. My expectations were probably unrealistically high. The redshirted security guys on Star Trek had a short life span. I love Galaxy Questa parody movie of Star Trek. Starship Troopers not like the movie by Robert A.

Heinlein is the book that got me started in sci-fi adventures, and has remained one of my top five favorite military science fiction adventure stories for decades. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. This book made me laugh out loud which is rare. Ever wonder what it would be like on a starship like the Enterprise?

Or why some bridge crew members get beaten extremely bad once a week only to be in perfect health the next? Or how in the vast expanse of the Universe a terrorist your ship is ordered to stop just so happens to be a former Academy roommate?

What are the odds? Well a group johb new crew members slowly come to the conclusion that the high mortality rates and bizarre, extremely unlikely coincidences can only mean one thing: Now you might think this is just another GalaxyQuest that spoofs on Star Trek but it isn’t If you are looking for a typical Scalzi sci-fi book like the Old Man’s War series this isn’t it.

This book is nothing more than comedy with a small bit of an existential crisis added in. It’s funny and a very lighthearted. See all 1, reviews.

As a Humanist and a politician, More was in the front rank of his contemporaries, as a Socialist he was far ahead of them all. His political, religious, and Humanist writings are to-day only read by a small number of historians. Had he not written Utopia his name would scarcely be better known to-day than that of the friend who shared his fate, Bishop Fisher of Rochester.

His socialism made him immortal. Unlike the historians of the idealistic school, we do not believe in a Holy Spit which illumines minds and fills them with ideas, to which the political and economic development adapts itself. We rather start from the assumption that the contradictions and antagonisms which the economic development creates in society stimulate thought and provoke investigations by men who are favourably situated to prosecute such researches, so that they may understand what is going on before their eyes and remove the suffering which contemporary conditions entail.

In this way arise political and social ideas which influence contemporary thought, or at least, particular classes, in the degree that they respond to the actual conditions, and which are correct so far as they coincide with the interests of the aspiring classes. So it comes about that certain ideas are only operative under certain conditions, that ideas which at one time encounter indifference and even scorn are taken up with enthusiasm, and often without strict verification, a few decades later.

The materialist conception of history alone explains the influence of particular ideas. It is not concerned to deny that every age has its particular ideas which condition it, and that these ideas form the dynamics of social development. It does not, however, stop at this point, but proceeds to investigate the forces which set the machinery in motion, and these it finds in the material conditions.

It is clear that ideas must be fermenting for some time before they can exercise any influence on the masses. There is a tendency to reproach the masses with running after novelties, whereas the truth is that they cling most obstinately to the old.

The antagonism of the new economic conditions to the transmitted conditions and the ideas which accord therewith must be fairly pronounced before it penetrates to the mind of the masses. Where the acumen of the investigator perceives unbridgable antagonisms of classes, the average man sees only accidental personal disputes; where the investigator sees social evils which could only be removed by social transformations, the average man consoles himself with the hope that times are only temporarily bad and will soon improve.

We are not speaking of the members of classes on the decline, most of whom will not face facts, but have in mind the nascent classes, whose interests it is to see, but who cannot see until they bump right up against the new conditions. Their ideas also were conditioned by the newly developing material conditions, but these conditions were not yet sharply defined enough to render the aspiring classes accessible to these ideas. But a thinker who takes his stand on the material conditions may be a whole epoch in advance of his time, if he perceives a newly evolving mode of production and its social consequences not only sooner than most of his contemporaries, but straining far into the future, also glimpses the more rational mode of production into which it will develop.

Thomas More is one of the few who have been capable of this bold intellectual leap; at a time when the capitalist mode of production was in its infancy, he mastered its essential features so thoroughly that the alternative mode of production which he elaborated and contrasted with it as a remedy for its evils, contained several of the most important ingredients of Modern Socialism.

The drift of his speculations, of course, escaped his contemporaries, and can only be properly appreciated by us to-day. Despite the immense economic and technical transformations of the last three hundred years, we find in Utopia a number of tendencies which are still operative in the Socialist Movement of our time.

Our first enquiry pertains to the causes of such an extraordinary phenomenon. Erasmus tells us how amiable, helpful, and full of sympathy with the poor and oppressed More was: Only in the northern countries of Western Europe were the material conditions in the sixteenth century favourable to the formation of such a disinterested character.

In the mercantile republics of Italy, as in the Courts of the Romance monarchies, egotism, the grand feature of the new mode of production, reigned absolutely; it reigned openly, boldly, full of revolutionary defiance.

It was a vast egotism, quite different from the cowardly, mendacious, despicable egotism of to-day, which hides itself behind conventional hypocrisy. Generally speaking, in the towns of England and Germany, entirely different economic conditions prevailed from those in the Italian towns, and to a lesser degree in the towns of France and Spain.

Thomas More and his Utopia

Agriculture, together with the Mark constitution, still formed to a great extent the basis even of the urban mode of production; the separation of the country from the town was nowhere completely defined. Tillage of the soil must then have been a chief xnd of the citizens.

At the commencement of the sixteenth century the primitive agrarian communism still existed in England. It had survived under cover of feudalism, and only then began to yield place to another system of agriculture. The features which corresponded to primitive communism still existed, especially among anv lower population, and we meet them in More only slightly glossed over with the Humanistic and courtier traits and the self-censure which the conditions imposed upon him.

But sympathy with the poor does not make one a socialist, although without that sympathy no one is likely to become a socialist.

In order that utopiq sentiments and ideas should grow out of this interest, it must be conjoined with a special economic situation, the existence of a working proletariat as a permanent mesa phenomenon, and on the other hand profound economic insight. The existence of a proletariat of vagabonds creates benevolence and induces almsgiving, but does not produce a socialism of the modern variety.

The only persons who had karp learnt to think scientifically and methodically, to generalise, and who were, therefore; capable of formulating a theoretical socialism, were the Humanists. Now in the northern countries Humanism was an exotic growth, in which no class had a special interest. While the Humanists in Italy were busily engaged in active affairs, and therefore gave expression to the economic and political tendencies of their time and country, the great majority of German Humanists were merely schoolmasters with no glimmering kautsmy practical affairs, who, instead of delving into the past for weapons in the struggles of the present, stood aloof from those struggles and retired to their studies, in order to live wholly in the past.

On the contrary, the rudeness, the barbarism, the boorishness into which Germany sank to an increasing extent after the sixteenth century, and from which she did not emerge until the beginning of the eighteenth century, rendered the maintenance of science in Germany possible only by its tho,as completely divorced from active life.

The discoveries of the Portuguese in the second half jis the fifteenth century opened a sea route to India. At the same time the old communications kwutsky the East through Asia Minor and Egypt were interrupted by the invasions of the.

Turks, while the caravan routes from Central Asia had previously been closed in consequence of local upheavals. This paralysed not only the trade of the Mediterranean seaboard, but also that of the towns on the great German waterways, which, besides being the intermediaries of the trade between Italy and the North, traded with the East on their own account by other routes — via Trapezunt and the Black Sea as well as the land route over Russia.

Karl Kautsky: Thomas More and his Utopia (Pt.1, Intro)

The total effect of these changes was to sever the arteries of the German towns, especially of the Hansa towns on the Baltic and the towns in Southern Germany, Nuremberg, Augsburg, etc. The towns on the Rhine and on the estuaries of the North Sea suffered less, but the trade which they supported was insignificant and its direction had changed.

It flowed not from East to West, from South to North, but contrariwise. Antwerp became for the sixteenth century what Constantinople had been in the fourteenth century and what London was to become in the eighteenth century: The proximity of Antwerp inevitably exercised the most stimulating effect upon the commerce of England, and especially of London. Out of mercantile the beginnings of industrial capital were already beginning to develop.

Englishmen began to manufacture wool in their own country after the Flemish example, and even in the time of Henry VIII complaints were heard of the decay of independent handicraft in wool-combing. But in the England of More the beginnings of the capitalist mode of production in agriculture were much more perceptible than these nuclei of industrial capital. The causes of this have already been indicated: Next to wool, timber and fuel were important agricultural products in England, in view of the growth of the towns, as was also barley for the Flemish breweries.

The demand for wool grew in the degree that manufactures on the one hand, and the means of transport on the other, developed. At the outset English wool found its chief market in the Netherlands, but at the end of the fifteenth century it was being exported both to Italy and to Sweden.

Among other things, this may be inferred from two commercial treaties which Henry VII concluded with Denmark and Florence in As the market grew, the merchants and great landowners of England redoubled their efforts to extend wool production. The landowners found the simplest way of doing this was to claim for themselves the common lands which the peasants had a right to use. Thus the peasant was more and more deprived of the opportunity of keeping cattle, his entire business fell into disorder, and financial ruin overtook him.

All kinds of expedients were adopted.

Not merely individual peasants, but sometimes the inhabitants of entire villages and even small townships were expelled, to make room for sheep.

So long as the landlords themselves farmed their estates, or, as happened for a short period, leased portions of them to tenants, to whom they advanced the necessary agricultural plant, cattle, etc.

There was no point in extending his property unless he was able at the same time to add to his plant and stock.

This limit melted away and the land hunger of the great landowners knew no bounds with the arrival of the capitalist farmer, who used his own capital to employ wage workers to cultivate the land which he leased. This class arose in England in the last third of the fifteenth century. It rapidly increased in the sixteenth century, in consequence of the unexampled profits which it then made, and which not only accelerated the accumulation of capital, but also attracted capitalists from the towns.

The rise of profits is to be especially attributed to the depreciation of gold and silver which was caused by the immense transfers of the precious metals from America to Europe; the effect of this monetary depreciation may well have been accentuated by the currency debasement of princes.

In the course of the sixteenth century the prices of agricultural products rose by to per cent. Rents, on the other hand, were slow in rising, as the leases ran for long terms, and did not keep pace with the prices of agricultural products. Therefore they fell actually if not nominally.

This not only increased the number of farmers and the amount of their capital, but also formed a fresh incentive for yis large landowners to extend their estates, in order to make good their losses in this way. The consequence was a rapid impoverishment of the small peasants. A concurrent phenomenon was the kaugsky of the feudal bands of retainers, to which we mmore made reference in the first part.

The retainers were in any case a burden for the working people. Where they remained in existence, they were a burden on the peasants who were obliged to support them. Where they were broken up, thomaas became a scourge to the wage earners, by swelling the ranks of the unemployed. The fourteenth and fifteenth centuries were the Golden Age for the peasants and wage workers of England. At the end of this epoch they were both suddenly plunged into deepest poverty.

The number of kwrl swelled to terrible dimensions. The most gruesome punishments were not, of course, calculated either to diminish their numbers or to restrain them from crime punishment for crime was uncertain, but sure was the punishment for abstention from crime: Not much better than the situation of the workless was that of the propertyless workers, who then began to form kark numerous class in agriculture.

What parliamentary legislation had only incompletely achieved in the preceding two centuries was easily attained in the sixteenth century by the oppressive weight of the reserve army of the workless. Real wages diminished, and labour time was extended. Food prices rose by per cent. When capitalism first invades industry and then turns to agriculture, it seems at the outset to wear a benevolent aspect. It must aim at a constant extending of the market, of production, while the importation of labour-power proceeds but slowly.

In its early stages, such an industry is always complaining of the lack of labour-power. Capitalists must outbid handicraftsmen and peasants in order to entice away from them their journeymen and bondsmen: In this way capitalism began in many countries; it was hailed as a blessing.

Not so in England, where it first invaded and revolutionised agriculture. Improvements in methods of cultivation made many workers superfluous. Capitalism in agriculture meant the direct setting-free of workers.

In England this process of setting-free proceeded in its severest forms, at a time when industry was developing but slowly and required only small supplies of labour-power; least of all, the ignorant country labourer. And hand in hand with the separation of the workers from the land, from their means of krl, a rapid concentration of landed property into a few hands was going on. Nowhere else in Europe, therefore, were the unfavourable reactions of the capitalist mode of production upon the working classes so immediately obvious as in England; nowhere did the unhappy workers clamour so urgently for assistance.

More was not the only person who sought for and propounded such expedients. From numerous writings of that time, from numerous Acts of Parliament we may perceive how deep was the impression made by the economic revolution then proceeding, and how generally the shabby practices of the landlords and their tenants were condemned. But none of those who put forward remedies had a wider outlook, to none of them came the conviction that the sufferings incident to the new mode of production could only be ended by a transition to another and higher mode of production; none of them, save More, was a Socialist.

A theory of Socialism could thlmas arise within the realm of Humanism.

Despreccio out of his own relationship problems with wife Elsa Morante, Moravia’s Contempt is a rich but turbulent story of a marriage in decline, where Rome screenwriter Molteni is told by his beautiful wife Emilia that she not only doesn’t love him anymore, but finds him deplorable to be around.

Told with a profound sense of melancholy, the narrative possesses both an unpleasant behind-closed-doors feel, mixed with tragedy and farce. Very early on we desprexio that love is dead in the water so to speak Born out of his own relationship problems with wife Elsa Morante, Moravia’s Contempt is a rich but turbulent story of a marriage in decline, where Rome screenwriter Molteni is told by his beautiful wife Emilia that she not only doesn’t love him anymore, but finds albertk deplorable to be around.

Very early on we realize that love is dead in the water so to speak, or at least from Emilia’s moraviw, the sensitive Ricarrdo also known as Molteni on the other hand is left reeling with a sense of what have I done wrong?

Along with the troubled couple, the novel only features two other characters, film producer Battista, an arrogant and overbearing individual who has eyes for Emilia, and German Director Rheinhold who wants to make a film version of Homers’s Odyssey. Emilia becomes more distant, looking at her husband as a mere ghost, while Molteni is struggling with two idea’s for the film, Battista wants a spectacular Odyssey, but Rheinhold’s vision is a philosophical one.

Stuck in the middle with his mind only on one thing, Molteni’s agitation fueled by the blistering heat leads him to question his own nature and deepest fears. The most striking aspect of Contempt is the cool calculated way he looks at love, or lack of it. For all it’s painful predicaments, there is a great substance in his writing, sometimes you want to turn away from the intimate conflict and intensity, but he still compels the reader to keep turning the pages to the bitter end.

Reading of a marital crisis was never going to be easy, and with an equally tragic finale it’s not going to particularly make you feel that great, but I loved it. And having seen numerous times Jean Luc Godard’s adaptation, staring a pouting Brigitte Bardot, apart from a few differences it reads similar to xe film.

El desprecio by Alberto Moravia (5 star ratings)

This is my third Moravia and damn if he hasn’t become one of my favorites now! This is the anti-Homeric tale of the anti-Ulysses. The backdrop is a writer who takes on the dubious task of writing a script adaptation of Ulysses.

Told in the first person by this screenwriter who clearly sees himself as an intellectual referencing not only Homer but Dante and Joyce as well – woo hoo! And inevitably and immediately he creates a self-fulfilling prophecy of destruction and gloom for all of those around him.

If Thomas Bernhard hadn’t already written a book called “The Loser” I would suggest that it would make for an excellent alternate title for this particular book. View all 18 comments. One of the greats among the greats. Slowly the reader can see what’s happening, and you just want to yell out at the page ‘hey stupid, you are going to lose your beautiful wife to that awful man the producer!

And here lies a story about a man who is blinded by his indifference to the world. A very romantic story of sorts that is not romantic. A litle side note: Jean-Luc Godard made th One of the greats among the greats.

One of my all-time favorite films and book. One day on the bus I saw this beautiful girl reading not only “Contempt” but even better – a movie tie in mass market version of this novel. With Bardot on the cover, plus Godard’s name as big as the author’s Alberto Moravia name on the cover! I was biting my lip till it bleed not to talk to this young beauty.

Luckily she got off the bus. A week later I see her with another book: Andrew Loog Oldham’s “Stoned. And like “Contempt” very rare! Now a normal person would think “oh we share the same taste in rare books. She even smiled at me once our eyes met.

And I never saw her again. If you rl girl are on goodreads, despreecio me up. View all 3 comments. While Riccardo, the intelligent and likeable, though slightly narcissistic and delusional narrator, works as a journalist writing film critics to make a living, his dream is to become a serious writer and novelist. His beautiful wife Emilia, coming from an impoverished family, dreams on the other hand of living in their own house and of creating a comfortable nest for them, something much http: His beautiful wife Emilia, coming from moravis impoverished family, dreams on the other hand of living in their own house and of creating a comfortable nest for them, something much better than the rented room in which the financially struggling couple lives.

When Riccardo is offered work as a screenwriter by the film producer Battista, he decides to accept this work despite serious reservations. But on his way upward in the social hierarchy, something happens to the relationship between Emilia albeerto Riccardo: Emilia becomes reserved and grows cold toward her husband, love turns into indifference and even into hatred and contempt.

Contempt is also the title of the moravua by Alberto Moravia that I am reviewing here. Moravia has been praised for his elegant prose, and I can see why, even when I read the book in German translation. The prose is flowing effortlessly, the dialogues of the tormented Riccardo who wants to find out the reason for the growing estrangement between him and his wife, and Emilia sound very real and convincing. One of the issues that play a major desprecioo in the novel, is the relationship between success and money, and the real needs and wishes of people; the characters are forced to do things that are in contrast with what they really want albetro order to make a living, or to satisfy the vain dreams of their partners, or to be perceived as successful and dynamic in a capitalist society.

While Battista wants to produce a monumental adventure movie, Rheingold on the other hand is only interested in the psychological conflict that he sees as the reason for Odysseus Ulysses participation in miravia War of Troy, and his delayed return to Penelope. According to his Ddsprecio reading, Odysseus participates in the war because he wants to escape an unhappy relationship: For the same reason, it takes him many years to come home.

While Moravia is showing us a rather bleak picture of the modern Western world, where money, success, and sex serve as substitutes for a more meaningful existence, albert reference to Homer seems to say that it has in principle been always like this. In the meantime, it is best to acknowledge the mechanisms of the inherent contradictions of capitalist society. If Riccardo would have had more time to resolve the basic conflict and predicament of his life with Emilia, it would have been best to divorce and focus his future life on what he edsprecio aspires to be, a novelist and serious author.

A sudden blow of fate spares him fesprecio actively taking this decision on his own. Moravia knew the film business well; desprecii worked also as a script writer and met probably people very similar as those described in his novel. Contempt describes an at that time thriving film industry in Italy as he experienced it, and the picture he is painting is not a particularly flattering one. Moravia had also a house on Capri similar as the one owned by Battista in the novel, where the final crisis takes place the Godard movie was shot partly at the Casa Malaparte, another rather famous villa on Capri.

And it is also known that at the time he published Contempt, his own marriage with ed Elsa Morante was in moraviz crisis that ended in divorce a few years aoberto. So, while the novel is not a strictly autobiographic one, Moravia knew about what he was writing and was able to transform ,oravia into a rather short, fascinating novel. The setting, particularly the scenes at the Casa Malaparte, is next to perfect for this movie. However, I had the impression that Brigitte Drsprecio and Jack Palance were not really the right choices for two of the major roles while Michel Piccoli is brilliant ; therefore, it desprfcio for me a good movie, but not the masterpiece it could have been with a more adequate cast of characters.

Contempt was also published in English as A Ghost at Noon. This book was agonizingly good. Read it if you want to witness and perhaps relive the rather rapid disintegration of a long-term relationship, step by torturous step.

Each niggling doubt, each pang of hurt and betrayal, each willful choice to ignore one’s intuition and instead select a creative interpretation of the incontrovertible facts. How does love turn into contempt?

After the fact, it is usually too difficult as well as painful and potentially self-incriminating to let ourselves remem This book was agonizingly good. After ce fact, it is usually too difficult as well as painful and potentially despreciio to let ourselves remember. As it is easier to simply weep, we are thus left with a blur of memories that we’d just as soon forget.

This book reminds us of the process. Although it was often very painful and sad to read, there was something immensely helpful on a personal level in being able to follow so astutely the descent of a relationship.

The psychology is excruciatingly spot-on. The sentences were complex and convoluted, and the word choices were always meticulous. I am very impressed by Moravia, and I look forward to reading much more of him. This brilliant book, amongst other things, is a good example of how intellectualism can mess up your life.

The perpetual questioning of things that seem alright, questioning of the slightest inflection and intonation, questioning of an inconsequential moody denial. Why did she not want to come out with me, why is she suddenly comfortable with spending time by her self, why does she sleep on the sofa, why didn’t she make up after our last fight, are her confidences genuine? Is her This brilliant desrecio, amongst other things, is a good example of how intellectualism can mess up your life.

Is her love dying? An insistent urge to analyze every tiny bit, every deviation from consistency or every possible deviation from consistency.

An insatiable desire to discuss these doubts with her and clear every question.
