I love RAH, and cannot poke holes in his rich scientific mind, but you cannot fire an M1 Garand or any other rifle or pistol on the face of the moon. This is why SciFi always has laser guns. Other than that, it reminded me of the TV series "Salvage 1" from the 80's, a real pleasant read.
I love this book, however, it seems like one of his younger-audience books. A great listen though.
This book is fantastic. It has my favorite character (from Cat that walks through walls), Laz Long.
It got kinda creepy at the end with overtones of Oedipus, but still solid and engaging. He could have skipped the 2 hours on DNA and Cloning, but still solid. I want to meet Lapis and Lorili.
This book was great, but like most of RAH (does anyone share my opinion this man had ADHD?), he pulls the handbrake on a richly developed storyline.
I love the characters, I love the story and attention to detail. Read it, but have your seatbelt on so the dash doesn't hit you when he locks the brakes up.
I love each of these stories, especially the last, they are all little stand-alone gems, very rich and satisfying.
This book should have been called "The incalculable Clark" as it had more to do with Podkayne's brother Clark than it did "Poddy". RAH masterfully builds a lush environment, then fails to fill it with any substance. My first disappointment from RAH.
I love this story, it is richly built, and RAH leaves no stone unturned. However, it seems as though Thorby lives a very charmed life, and very little ill befalls him save for slavery. The book ended abruptly, as do most RAH books, leading me to believe that he might have suffered from ADHD.
