    1. “The man was very odd. Tall, thin, with white hair and a fine, delicate bone structure. He had smooth skin and a boyish face – but the eyes were very strange, as though they were weak, over-sensitive, yet with a look that was old and wise and tired.”In short, he looks a lot like this:Ground control to Major Thomas?The eponymous Man Who Fell to Earth is one Thomas Jerome Newton, a rather commonplace name, not alienesque like Xarx or something along that line. Of course, his real name is ver [...]

    2. no ray guns are fired or space battles waged in this poignant novel. there is a spaceship yes, but it is incapacitated after it deposits its passenger on earth. the passenger is an alien from a dying planet named anthea and he's looking for an escape - a place for the remnants of his people. his name on earth will be t.j. newton (sometimes called tommy) and this novel is his story, of how our world affects him, physically and emotionally, as he tries to achieve his missionere's not much more of [...]

    3. I had nearly forgotten why people start reading in the first place: the joy of an honest story. I'm so used to the writer as the essential protagonist, the writing as his conflict, and whether or not I want to throw away his book as his comedic or tragic end. But this just unfolds cleanly, without seeming consciously written at all. Never an "ohhh that was beautiful" and very rarely a distracting wince. I got deeply engaged without any self-discipline at all. It's lightening-quick and so satisfy [...]

    4. Brilliant. This a deceptively simple story, told in simple, uncomplicated prose, but with unexpected depth and relevance. It might come off as slightly trite now, as with most mid-20th century fiction set in "the near future" (the late 1980s, of all things!), but I'm sure in 1963 it was truly a sign of the times. What I'm sure hasn't lost its charge over the years is the tint of sadness, of individualized despair, that permeates the book and ultimately embitters the characters. No one escapes th [...]

    5. 3.5 to 4.0 stars. I really struggled between giving this 3 or 4 stars and settled closer to 4 for one primary reason: the ending of the story was deeply emotional and I believe will stay with me for some time. Apart from the excellent ending, the rest of the story was well-written, moved along at a good pace and kept me interested.

    6. Dünyaya düşen bir adamın insanlaşmasını konu edinen "Dünyaya Düşen Adam"ı okurken elimden bırakamadım. En ağırından bir uzaylı hikayesi okuyacağımı zannederken kitap bittiğinde buram buram yozlaşma kokan, aslında bir insanın hikayesini okuduğumu farkettim.Kitabın, David Bowie'nin başrolünü üstlendiği bir de filmi çekilmiş. Konu olarak ayrı düştükleri baya bir nokta var diyorlar, o yüzden kitabı hali hazırda bu kadar kaliteliyken filmine hiç bulaşmaya ger [...]

    7. This novel follows an extraterrestrial, arriving on Earth to see if he can find a way to bring his drought suffering people into the planet so that they might live. This is one of my favourite science-fiction classics, and is truly worth the read, as an exploration, not only of science, but of the human nature and politics. We get a deep understanding of the main character, as he suffers for being an alien in a planet that will hurt him if they discover who he is, and the pressure of thinking of [...]

    9. Questo libro va letto. Va letto per una serie di motivi che sono questi:1)L'idea L'autore, grazie all'espediente sci-fi dell'alieno che sbarca segretamente sul nostro pianeta, ci permette di avere un punto di vista "laterale", rispetto al mondo civilizzato che ci circonda: scienza, società, politica. Rielabora efficientemente il concetto di alienazione nella società post-moderna e post-industriale.2)Lo stile Uno stile asciutto, essenziale nel descrivere pensieri e rapporti dei personaggi, ma n [...]

    10. Only came to this book through a winding road of Valis by PKD in his description of David Bowie in the novel. PKD was influenced by Bowie in the movie "The man who fell to earth". I watched, thought it was interesting, and THEN finally read the novel, which, I'm sure most people will agree, was a lot better than the movie. That being said, I did like the book quite a bit, being an outsider type of novel with a lot to say about those earthling aliens. Fun read and well done, well worth being a cl [...]

    11. The literary equivilant of a flower growing through a block of cement. The characterization is clumsy, obvious and in the case of the gin soaked country woman straight out of "Lady For A Day" borders on self parody. The social commentary is sometimes bizarre such as when our alien friend ruminates on the pros and cons of The Welfare State and sometimes obvious with it's JESUS WAS TEH ALIEN subtext. And lordy if you don't think that a book as slight as 160 pages can be overwritten within an inch [...]

    12. Picked this one up somewhere in Edison Park, Chicago, my home in Park Ridge being right across Canfield/Ozanam from the city limits. Read it on the same day I, rarely satisfied under our household's strict food regimen, bought my first real food, a can of black olives.The Man Who Fell to Earth was one of the saddest books I'd ever read at the time. Its protagonist's good intentions towards us, the extremity under which his own species had found itself and his great loneliness were all very movin [...]

    13. This is the cover I had because Bowie. Read this more than once because Bowie. It suited him.

    14. Who would have thought that a book about an alien coming to Earth could be so sad?? I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

    15. Di solito quando affronto un libro non leggo review prima di avere scritto qui il mio commento, eventualmente confronto dopo ma, in questo caso, terminato questo romanzo è stato necessario dargli un contesto storico (1963) e cercare anche i riferimenti biografici dell'autore. Trovati entrambi alla voce su : L'uomo che cadde sulla Terra. Informazioni soddisfacenti e condivisibili.Aggiungo solo quello che mi rimane come sentimento inaccettabile dall'analisi della specie umana sperimentata dal pro [...]

    16. On the outside, The Man Who Fell to Earth is about Thomas Jerome Newton, an alien from the planet Anthea, who has come to Earth seeking salvation for the last of his people but it's really about being alone inside your own skin and struggling to feel connected to anyone or anything before you die.Walter Tevis takes a subject that has been overdone, ooh a spaceship and an alien EXCITING!, and makes his own unique brand of sociopolitical science fiction. The lyrical descriptions mesh well with the [...]

    17. "Where will you go.with the money?""Maybe to the Pacific, to Tahiti. We'll probably take an air-conditioner with us."#theguywiththebookreview presents: The man who fell to Earth. This book is going to stay with me for a long time. Not because of great/good/pleasing writing but because I expect it to have many layers which will unearth themselves when I talk about it.‎ Some moments of sheer frustration at our hapless nature gripped me by the end. The book was very effective in conveying a messa [...]

    18. I've discovered this book completely by chance (having heard of the film but never seen it) and absolutely fell in love with it. Often the book or a movie are being referred to as classic and it has to do more with their age than their contents, this book however is a fine example of a real scifi classic, one that teaches us something about ourselves through a different perspective. If there were no dates in the book at all (dates that might have seemed like a future back when the novel was writ [...]

    19. The problem with this book is that author must have thought that the only way to make a person seem deep is to make them an alcoholic--alcoholism defines all three main characters in the book. It's like an actor who finally wins an academy award after playing a drunk (when it is probably the easiest part to play). The vast majority of interactions in the book include drinking, which Tevis describes in painstaking detail, over and over again--what they are drinking, how they are drinking it, what [...]

    21. Simply fantastic. This is one of the most heartbreaking novels written in the past 50 years.

    22. As a non native English speaker, I discovered the adjective 'poignant' only six years ago thanks to a Canadian friend (thanks, Vicky). She chose it to comment a photo I took involving a bowler hat hanging from a chair while an out of focus blonde girl in the background stood on her toes to take off a branch of autumn leaves from the frame of a mirror over a washbasin.To be honest with you, the photo was nothing special. Perhaps my friend was ironic. Or maybe not.What I know is that from that day [...]

    23. Ostensibly a story about an extraterrestrial, this is a profoundly human story of isolation, self-destruction, and failure.Arriving incognito on a mission to save his dying home planet, the newly named Thomas Newton stumbles into Haneyville (pop. 1400) and is immediately unsettled by the appearance of the locals: “ the look, the feel, was strange - even though he had known that seeing them would not be the same as watching them on television.”It’s an outsider’s novel, later described by [...]

    24. It is not often that you find a great book. A book that makes you feel pride after you've read it. This was one of those books.Writen in 1963, the man who fell to earth is considered a sci-fi classic, although the book is far from being restricted to a specific genre because it tackles a lot of different subjects.The prose is fluid and it feels natural to read . Walter Travis is clearly a writer with huge story telling abilities which lead me, at times, to think that I was reading Stephen King N [...]

    25. A história é super cativante, sobre um alienígena que vem pra terra e começa a transformar a nossa forma de viver com novas tecnologias, novos estudos e novas possibilidades. O plot é incrível, mas o ritmo não me pegou. Demorei pra ler o livro e ele é bem linear. Não é a leitura com altos e baixos, cheia de emoções, mas isso não é um "erro" e sim só o estilo do livro mesmo. Não combinou muito comigo, mas reconheço toda a genialidade da obra. Ainda vale a leitura <3

    26. Not a huge fan of Sci-fi but it's still a fun read. Not much happens really, it follows two main characters ~ T.J. Newton the alien millionaire and Nathan Bryce that's wants to find out who Newton really is and why he's here. I don't think it gets into real depth about Newton's situation enough, its more interested in should humans be saved, Republicans and alien Jesus.

    27. I love this book. I wish the edition were not so glossy and ugly. The one I read was packaged with the film in the Criterion Collection set. Still haven't gotten around to watching the movie (I know! David Bowie! What am I waiting for?). for real, read this.

    28. It was only after reading a chapter or two that I realised I had previously read another book by this author, Mockingbird. Although I had very much enjoyed that novel when I read it, it hadn't occurred to me to check out anything else the author had written and, although dimly aware of this book for many years (also being a Bowie fan) I hadn't connected the two.Anyhow, there are probably a number of similarities between the two books. The author's dim view of humanity's prospects in the future f [...]

    29. Finding the words to articulate my feelings for this poignant story is no easy task. It is one I have chosen to minimize as I feel this a novel best left interpreted by the individual reader. There is much to be gained during the small time spent with this classic novel.Initially I did not fully discern just how much was happening within this misleadingly simple story of an alien from the planet Anthea sent to Earth in hopes of securing a means to save his own race.The plot is very basic. Our pr [...]

    30. An interesting slice of the "classic" sci-fi canon (although plenty would disagree), and I can't explain why I never got around to it before. This is an entertaining enough, quirky (and, yes, slender) book, originally published in the 1960's (1963), but set primarily in the 1980's (and dipping, somewhat briefly, into the 1990's). It's relatively thought-provoking although, I have to assume, it must have seemed far more fresh, creative, and "out there" 50+ years ago. The book is surprisingly mode [...]
