Book Review: Downard To The Earth

Downward to the EarthDownward to the Earth by Robert Silverberg

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I can’t say that I didn’t enjoy this book because I did, it was the ending that let it down for me. The main character feels like he has turned into a messiah!
Maybe he has but it felt so contrived that I was a little uncomfortable with it.

Overall the storyline was interesting with some nice plot twists along the way as we discover all about this world and it’s creatures. I even bought into the fact that one of the intelligent species resembled elephants on our planet. I mean, who’s to say what does exist out there on other worlds.
The author built a believable world in almost every respect apart from the final scene.
