Levine à 2 Download Ever since Newton witnessed a bubble rising from his bathtub mankind has sought the stars When William III of England commissioned Capt William Kidd to command the first expedition to Mars in the late 1600s they proved that space travel was both possible and profitable Now one century later a plantation in the flourishing British colony on Mars is home to Arabella Ashby A tomboy who shares her father'. Final review first posted on Fantasy LiteratureWhat if Isaac Newton instead of watching an apple fall from a tree and being inspired to develop a new theory of gravity had observed a bubble rising from his bathtub and begun to meditate on space travel Well in the world of Arabella of Mars a delightful and uniue blend of a Regency era nautical adventure and the pioneering science fiction of Jules Verne or Edgar Rice Burroughs it resulted in Captain Kidd commanding the first voyage to Mars in the late 1600s A little over a hundred years later in the year 1812 there are plantations on Mars that grow valuable khoresh wood watched over by their British masters with the assistance of Martian servants who have a vaguely crablike appearance as well as multiple languages and a culture that most humans fail to appreciateArabella is a sixteen year old tomboy raised on Mars with the help of a Martian nanny Khema Her pleasant life there is brought to an abrupt end when she gets a head injury in a rowdy game of Hound and Hare with her older brother Michael Worse yet her parents catch her wearing pants while she s getting her head stitched up afterwards Arabella s appalled mother who is set on her daughter becoming a genteel young lady drags Arabella and her two younger sisters back to Earth Over the next several months Arabella unhappily deals with the physical burden of Earth s heavier gravity as well as with the stifling Regency expectations of proper ladylike behavior Secretly exploring and fixing the internal workings of her father s automaton a mechanical harpsichord player run by intricate clockwork is her only outlet a way to feel closer to her far distant fatherWhen Arabella s father suddenly dies back on Mars Arabella finds out that her brother Michael who stayed on Mars with their father is in grave danger from a source he won t expect Arabella unearths the intrepid and adventurous side of her character which has been buried for so many months she disguises herself as a boy in order to get a job on a ship heading to Mars so she can warn her brother and help protect him Arabella s talent with automata unexpectedly helps her to land a job on a Mars Company ship captained by the intelligent handsome Captain Prakash Singh Arabella has a difficult time adjusting to the rigorous physical demands of being the most junior member of the ship s crew but that s only the beginning of her adventures in space where all the classic perils of sea travel reappear with an interplanetary twistIn a whimsical throwback to the Jules Verne era of scientific romances not only do spaceships in this universe look like old time sailing ships but space is essentially like one big ocean with asteroids as islands What s the air in space is breathable if a little cold and asteroids have trees growing on them It takes some getting used to As the ship Diana took off from Earth and rose higher and higher I kept expecting that moment when Arabella and the other sailors would encase the ship in a bubble of air or put on space suits It never happened It s surreal but rather a breath of fresh air as is Arabella herselfSpirited and resourceful Arabella is nevertheless grounded in her time Raised by a Martian nanny and impressed by the intrepid Captain Singh she is admirably colorblind in contrast to the racist and xenophobic attitudes of many of the other characters but she needs to work to overcome a tendency to exhibit a superior attitude toward others who aren t aware of things that Arabella takes for granted Life among the crew of the Diana painfully learning new skills that the other sailors do easily helps Arabella to become a mature and thoughtful person Arabella of Mars makes many sly references to colonial Great Britain including the Mars Company of space ships the British navy s treatment of its sailors French piracy in the skies and native uprisings It s amusing that the book s title calls to mind both Georgette Heyer s classic Regency novel Arabella as well as the titles of Edgar Rice Burroughs Barsoom novels like Thuvia Maid of Mars In fact Mars is here the literary euivalent of colonial India with the Martians in the role of the native people who are treated at best rather dismissively by most of the British colonists on their planet David D Levine weaves in some serious issues like the historical role of women colonialism racism and entailment of estates but it never becomes too heavy for this adventure tale The detailed descriptions of life aboard ship and the duties of sailors based to a large extent on nautical practices during the Napoleonic Wars do occasionally bog down the story slightly but the overall pace is brisk and imbued with a fresh sense of adventure and discovery Arabella of Mars is a debut novel by Levine a Hugo award winning author of speculative short fiction Two seuels have been promised by Levine but Arabella is also very satisfactory as a stand alone read It s an enchanting novel for young and young at heart readers who will enjoy a retro flavored science fiction read I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a review Thank you
