    This true modern masterpiece is built around the two fateful words that make up the title and herald the end - “Alas, Babylon.” When a nuclear holocaust ravages the United States, a thousand years of civilization are stripped away overnight, and tens of millions of people are killed instantly. But for one small town in Florida, miraculously spared, the struggle is just beginning, as men and women of all backgrounds join together to confront the darkness....

    For teenager Bill Lerner, who lives with his widower father in the City of Southern California, overpopulation has so constricted the food supplies that they must follow a strict caloric ration, and the crowded and starving civilization has become embattled. Sound familiar? Bill's solution is to emigrate to the colony Ganymede, on Jupiter's third moon. There, a motley crew of pioneers tries, with varying success, to forge a life-sustaining environment.

    Mike says: "Thoroughly enjoyable"
    "Young Teenagers book"
    Overall

    "Farmer in the Sky" by Robert Heinlein is truly a masterpiece of science fiction for young folks from ten to fifteen years of age and even older folks who like Heinlein's work.
    I highly recomend many of his books though his later books should not really be recomended unless the individual is more mature.

    At his death in 1988, Robert A. Heinlein left a legacy that almost single-handedly defined modern science fiction. But one of Heinlein's masterpieces was never finished. In 1955, he began work on Variable Star, a powerful and passionate tale of two young lovers driven apart by pride, power, and the vastness of interstellar time and space. Now, the Heinlein estate has authorized award-winning author Spider Robinson to expand his outline into a full-length novel. And the result is vintage Heinlein.

    Michael says: "BRVO!"
    ""Variable Star" just doesn't make it"
    Overall

    I have read this and another "colaberation" with Spider Robinson. This is the worst of the two and clearly neither have the Heinlein touch. It does not move smothly nor does it hold this readers attention as does even the least of the true Heinlein books.
