    This book wasn t at all what I thought it would be I went in expecting maybe a slightly wacky space travel tale, about the first Czech astronaut in space meeting an extraterrestrial life form while going about his mission What I got was a Kafka esque, vaguely allegorical story about the first Czech astrona...

    I went through some interesting stages as I read this one I didn t really have any expectations other than a possible or rather probable literature SF hybrid, delving deeper into the introspective and lyrical areas of space Perhaps it could have been an oddball exploration, perhaps humorous.As I read, I noticed the lyrical bits and there s plenty of deep characterization and family and memory going on, which seems to be the common thread for long missions in space these days, but then somethin I went through some inte...

    Jaroslav Kalfar s debut novel Spaceman of Bohemia has been compared to the extremely popular novel The Martian but Kalfar s novel is far superior I understand the comparison both novels are about lone men in space whose solitary Robinson Crusoe style adventures find them stranded on their journeys of exploration While it s enjoyable for some of the plot and scientific detail I thought The Martian mostly came across as repetitive and it s suffused with a particularly foul stench of mac Jaroslav Kalfar s debut novel Spaceman of Bohemia has been compared to the extremely popular novel The Martian but Kalfar s novel is far superior I understand the comparison both novels are about lone men in space whose solitary Robinson Crusoe style adventures find them stranded on their journeys of exploration While it s enjoyable for some of the plot and scientific detail I thought The Martian mostly came across as repetitive and it s suffused with a particularly foul stench of macho bravado By contrast, Spaceman of Bohemia is thoughtful, continuously compelling and says something intelligent about the progress of civilization.The hero is Jakub Proch zka, an astrophysicist with a speciality in cosmic dust which makes him the perfect candidate for the Czech Republic s first mission into outer space A comet from...

    I was sent this book for free from the publisher in exchange for a review Sadly this book didn t really live up to the gorgeous cover and intriguing premise for me I kept this book when it came in the post because even though I d never heard of it the fact that it was an SF novel with a Czech author and focus made me look twice Then I found out it was focused on a lone astronaut heading to investigate an ominous dust cloud and it sounded like it had a lot of potential When I started readin I was sent this book for free from the publisher in exchange for a review Sadly this book didn t really live up to the gorgeous cover and intriguing premise for me I kept this book when it came in the post because even though I d never heard of it the fact that it was an SF novel with a Czech author and focus made me look twice Then I found out it was focused on a lone astronaut heading to investigate an ominous dust cloud and it sounded like it had a lot of potential When I started reading the story I quickly realised it wasn t necessarily what I had hoped for or imagined I had wanted to love it but the focus wasn t on the adventure but rather on the astronaut, Jakub, who struggles with the loss of his planet and family and even his identity ...
