I Couldn’t Finish “Triplanetary” by E. E. “Doc” Smith

This is mostly an update for anyone who cares about my progress on these books. I update my Goodreads regularly, so check me out there if you have one!

Honestly, the book Triplanetary was far too outdated for me. It was mainly a problem in how the book communicates, I think, but I’ve read Victorian-era books without a problem, so I don’t know.

My complaints from the van Vogt books I’d read were similar, but overall I enjoyed them much more. In this one I had trouble keeping track of anything from characters to events. I don’t know why that was, but it was too hard to understand anything.

So, I’m giving up. I got 150 pages in, and I can’t remember what’s going on.
