    Story
    (722)

    They first appear as a series of dots on astronomical plates, heading from Saturn directly toward Earth. Since the ringed planet carries no life, scientists deduce the mysterious ship to be a visitor from another star. The world's frantic efforts to signal the aliens go unanswered. The first contact is hostile: the invaders blast a Soviet space station, seize the survivors, and then destroy every dam and installation on Earth with a hail of asteriods.

    Flatlander says: "Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle at Their Best"
    "No "mote in God's eye" or "lucifers hammer" but ok"

    About a "B" - I'm sure I'll listen to it many more times in the coming years.


    What other book might you compare Footfall to and why?

    Mote in God's eye and Lucifers hammer. Same authors.


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    None stood out really.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The last paragraph was pretty good.


    Any additional comments?
