    [The Puppet Masters] PDF/EBOOK Heinlein did you really combine a very sexist plot element with the assumption that no gay people exist as the icing on the cake of your very awkward biased and wanna be subliminal writing? I don´t know how many mind control body horror parasite tropes had already been established at the moment Heinlein wrote this book but it might certainly have had a massive impact on many pandemic alien invasion horror and sci fi works that

review The Puppet Masters

The Puppet Masters review ê 9 Lo suillo di un microradiotelefono con cui si apre uesto memorabile romanzo del 1951 annuncia la più raccapricciante invasione della Terra che la fantascienza abbia realizzato dopo l'Invasione da Marte di. This is the Heinlein book where evil alien slugs take over everyone s brains causing nationwide chaosThis novel was written in 1951 and is set in 2007 whew no mind controlling slugs around yet at least not that I m aware of Though the current state of politics makes me wonder The story is told from the viewpoint of Sam who works in a secretive national security agency under a boss he calls the Old Man Sam the Old Man and an excellent and very sexy agent called Mary head to Des Moines to investigate a flying saucer rumor and importantly find out why six other agents sent to investigate before them have disappeared without a trace They discover the alien slugs hard at work busily attaching themselves to the back of every human they can once they attach they control that person s mind and have access to all their memories and skills so they can use the people they control to capture other people long enough to stick a slug on their neck They manage to escape and report to the President of the US who can t be convinced to declare a state of emergency So our intrepid team goes back to Des Moines to try to get evidence of the alien invasion and things start to go wrong from thereI loved this old pulpy SF novel when I was a teenager The four stars are based on that teenage love because it s pretty dated but if you don t mind the 50s attitudes sprinkled with Heinlein s off beat views on libertarianism and sexual s it s still a pretty fun read

I have no problem with dated things I do not hold against a past time its inability to miraculously speak to my present I enjoy trying to crawl into the context of a different reader who may have lived decades or centuries ago and to imagine their responses to what I am readingor to imagine what rules the author tried to follow or break as the case may be I seek this kind of exercise in books art film musicit s one of the many reasons why I dig old stuff So regarding The Puppet Masters I feel compelled to observe that it is not its dated uality that specifically irks me As a work of early science fiction this novel earns a high rank for introducing about a thousand tropes that became par for the course in later scifi novels and films It must have seemed strikingly original to contemporary readers and the story stands up today It has much to recommend it But I will forget for a moment The Puppet Masters status as a science fiction novel and consider it in light of another genre to which it relatesThe Puppet Masters begs comparison not just with other scifi novels but with the pulp novels that inspired film noir Heinlein portrays the Titanian slug invasion as a mystery to be solved and his characters as the confrontational go to hardboiled even individuals who will get to the bottom of the problem and resolve it come hell or high water It s got the wisecracks the unadorned yet coy dialogue the hero s ethical if not moral ambiguity and it s got a purportedly dangerous female protagonistand in the purportedly lies my beef with The Puppet Masters Mary its female protagonist seems subservient than dangerous and not even subservient in that spoiled brat woman child I m just doing this to get my way sort of way Though no forward thinking in terms of rewriting the hackneyed gender map at least this latter behavior has some spirit in it for crying out loud I like a good detective novel and I love noir films genres which are riddled with female stereotypes so it s not the sexism of the novel per se that gets me I expect sexism from a novel straight from the 50s whence also many pulp novels and films and so try not to let it overly determine my feel for the work as a whole So it s not the sexism in The Puppet Masters that annoys meit s the kind of sexism What s upsetting about Mary is that Heinlein describes her for the reader through the mouths of his other characters as a deadly assassin a smart cookie a femme fatal He leads us to expect a character of this ilkand then he offers us not Barbara Stanwyck but Donna Reed with an upsetting past Ok she s not uite that bad at least not in the beginning but by the novel s end she makes Lana Turner in The Postman Always Rings Twice look like a woman of independent spirit The yes dears and whatever you say dears made me pray Mary would get and stay hagridden as people who play host to a Titanian parasite are called One of the characteristics of pulp and noir that makes the genre so compelling is the juxtaposing of the male protagonist with a female who actually challenges him She s often evil He usually has to kill her And of course those stories perpetuate the whorevirgin dichotomous view of the female gender that is no friend to women but at least these female characters possess agency and independent will They function as foils to the heroes and flesh out those male characters The spirited the female protagonist the stronger the hero That s how this euation works But despite Heinlein s early hints and implications that this is the kind of dynamic he s cultivating Mary does none of the above for Sam the hero of The Puppet Masters And conseuently her shortcomings become his He seems less formidable precisely because he finds no rival of any conseuence in her Heinlein promises this rivalry the first time he introduces her character but he never delivers Mary doesn t need to become host to an alien parasite because she s already hagridden by Sam
