An old broad that enjoys books of all types. Would rather read than write reviews though. I know what I like, and won't be bothered by crap.
I have read Heinlein before and his books are great or terrible. I enjoyed this one as it was simple and poignant.
The characters were well made. I liked the thinking that in the future we would have so many rockets that carnivals would have them to give you a pretend ride. Simple but only the big parks can do that. Disneyworld and Kennedy Space Center come to mind.
No, it would not make a good movie. Not enough action or plot to expand to a full movie.
A story about a pioneer in the space agency with a bad heart who finally gets his wish to be in space.
This short radio play was fun and fast paced. A man wants some away time from his wife so gets a robot that looks just like him to fill in while he is gone. Trouble is the robot doesn't want to be turned off and the trouble begins.
When the star finds out what happened to the $10 thousand dollars they were saving for a vacation house. Great twist!
I love these old science fiction shows. Some of the best writers had their stories done on these formats and it's great fun to rediscover them.
Definitely! Quick short listen.
The story reminded me of Mutiny on the Bounty. What do you do when your Captain is crazy? Is it better to do the insane things he asks or put him off the ship and wait to be rescued? This is the basic plot.
The Caine Mutiny. Same story, crazy captain and crew needs to justify their reasoning for the mutiny.
Good radio show, all are above par.
When the two survivors of the boat reunite. Who will people believe?
