    In a distant galaxy of colonized planets, the atrocity of slavery is alive and well. Young Thorby was just another bedraggled orphan boy sold at auction, but his new owner, Baslim, is not the disabled beggar he appears to be. Adopting Thorby as his son, Baslim fights relentlessly as an abolitionist spy. When the authorities close in on Baslim, Thorby must find his own way in a hostile galaxy. Joining with the Free Traders, a league of merchant princes, Thorby must find the courage to live by his wits and fight his way up from society's lowest rung.

    Kelly Howard says: "two classics together; can't get much better!"
    "Great begining"

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Citizen of the Galaxy the most enjoyable?

    I liked how the main character was thrown in to different environments and had to adapt using what he had learned from what he was taught and his experiences.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    This started out as one of e best books Ive listened to in a while and then just ended without tying up any of the loose ends. There is no second book and the author past away in 1988.


    Have you listened to any of Grover Gardner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first. I have to admit I didn't care for his voice at first and then I got used to it and found I like listening to him.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A slave to trade


    Any additional comments?

    I'm very disappointed on how it ended especially since it started out so brilliantly.
