    1. This is the only Murray Leinster book I've read but I enjoyed it pretty thoroughly. The story plays like a cross between "Who Goes There?" and "The Day of the Triffids." What I liked especially was the pragmatic approach that the characters took in dealing with the menace. I've read enough (and seen enough) bad sci fi/horror to be familiar with the cliches and tropes of the genre and this book was refreshingly absent of dumb characters making stupid moves in order to move the plot forward,with o [...]


    2. Surprisingly good and very well written, considering when it was published. If you're into John Carpenter's "The Thing", - like myself - this might be the book for you (if you manage to find a copy, that is): same atmosphere, and (almost) same story and plot. Four stars.


    3. Entertaining enough but the repetitions annoyed me to no end. Unnecessary reminders of what was going on, only a page after it had already been shown, and often done, again, right after. That's where the downside of the pulp fiction tradition shows, I suppose.


    4. It's been nearly sixty years since this book was published, and it still packs a punch. Why? Because Murray Leinster was one of the grand old masters of Science Fiction! This novel takes place on an island in the Pacific that serves as a supply station for Antarctica. A radio signal is picked up from an arriving plane headed back to the states. Suddenly, on the plane, there is sreaming, gunshots, and then the plane crashes on the island.The pilot shoots himself in the head. Then the terror begin [...]


    5. A rather odd, meandering novel in the "killer plants" genre by a guy named Murray Leinster, a.k.a. William Jenkins which was the basis for an even more meandering 1966 Michael Hoey film with the silly title of The Navy vs. the Night Monsters.The Monster from Earth's End concerns a small US Navy radar outpost on Gow Island, an island off the coast of South America. In Antarctica, some scientists have discovered specimens of prehistoric trees in the hot lakes region, and are flying them back to Wa [...]


    6. The Monster From Earth's End is a lot of fun in a quaint sort of way. However, the old fashioned fun begins to wear thin toward the halfway point. Luckily the action picks up before all is lost. Still, I was hoping for something a little more sinister and exciting, if not horrific, than a few small snapping twigs.
