    Set on the Earth-like planet Helliconia, this is an epic chronicling the rise and fall of a civilization over more than a thousand years. The great drama of life on Helliconia is shaped by its cosmic limitations. In fierce contrasts of climate, whole seasons last for centuries and civilizations rise and fall as theplanet orbits the giant sun Freyr every 3000 years.

    Overall

    Started really, really slow with new vocabulary and alien references that are hard to follow in audio format. Just finished listening to it - after working on it for a year, because it was so slow to start. Once I got over the hump however (about 1/2 way through) the story lines started to come together. I am buying the follow on because it got to be a good story - very Pillars of the Earth / Ken Follett.

  • Citizen of the Galaxy

    Citizen of the Galaxy takes place far in the future, when the human race has spread out to colonize other planets. In a slave market in the capital of Jubbul and the Nine Worlds, an auctioneer announces, "Lot 97. A boy." Slavery is commonplace in Jubbul, and the sight of the ragged, starving boy, Thorby, on the auction block is not unusual. What does puzzle bystanders and Thorby himself is his purchase by crippled Baslim, the beggar who sits every day in a corner of the marketplace.

    L. says: "One of Heinlein's best"
    "Great Read"
    Overall

    1960's techno book still rocks today.
