I read Lucifers Hammer when it first came out. Back then I would have given it 5 stars. I listened to the audiobook and it was still very good, but with old age creeping up on me I have become a little more jaded.
Still great, but today only 4 1/2 stars.
I enjoyed listening to this book. It did not take long before you were deeply enthralled in the story. The characters are well defined in the storyline was good.
Well planned and thought out. Excellent story. A slow start, but it hooks you before you know it. Don't expect non-stop action, but it keeps your mind on its mind-toes.
Intense, moving, and with some of the deepest insight into human nature of any work, there"s a reason Lucifer's Hammer is one of the most influential SF books ever. Look for breafth of story, epic scope, and of course, delightful paeans to technology (a la Martian).
The first half of the book is setting you up for the disaster - took a long long time to get to the action and the action was pretty lame. I gather this is a classic so what do I know, right?
great story loved it from the beginning to the end will probably read it many more times to come I would recommend this book to all my friends looking forward to more from the author
