    In the future, men and women have colonized the moon, and dazzling technological advances have created a better life for those on Earth. But the arrival of "the Wanderer" may change all that. A sphere of immense size, it appears suddenly one night during a lunar eclipse, causing crushing quakes on the Moon and catastrophes on Earth. Now, Lt. Don Merriam must find a way to reach the Wanderer and discover its purpose.

    Story

    The premise for this book struck me as potentially very interesting but I'm afraid for me it reads more as a very, very dated scifi story. It's almost like an alternate history scifi novel but stuck in a pre-moon-landing era where rocket ships are cones with three legs and people still weren't even sure what the moon would be like. The author seems to strive to base things in science but it winds up stuck in late 50's speculation.

    I'd recommend passing on this book and sticking with the more imaginative and less dated works by Heinlein or Niven.
