We read The Invisible Man by H.G. Wells in English. I didn’t really like that particular Sci-Fi book, but that’s not to say I don’t like any Sci-Fi stories.
I dislike the older Sci-Fi stories such as The Invisible Man and The Time Machine by H.G. Wells but I do like some of the more modern Sci-Fis such as Star Wars.
I consider George Lucas a mastermind in the movie business. He created a whole new universe. He didn’t just make up some small land or civilization he recreated a whole new universe. There are many different levels of science fiction in Star Wars from the ways of transportation to the types of worlds in his universe.
Most of the Sci-Fi novels from the 19th century and even early 20th the world setting of the stories haven’t been as complex and I really like that in Sci-Fi novels.
