Publisher's Summary

When nuclear war breaks out and the nations of the Earth are destroyed, a group of US astronauts are marooned on the lunar surface. Using the "torsion field generator", a WWII Nazi Wunderwaffe previously known as the Bell, they hope to find an alternate Earth that did not suffer nuclear armageddon. But once they do discover one, how will they return home? They have a single Lunar Module, which can carry only four astronauts into lunar orbit.

    Story
    "Fun Thought Experiment"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, it was time well spent. An interesting concept. I wish the story was a bit longer and spent a bit more time getting to know more characters.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Ian Sales? Why or why not?

    I might


    Could you see Adrift on the Sea of Rains being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I could see it as a show. With some additional character development thrown in.


    Any additional comments?

    While the narration was good, It wasn't great. I think what was missing was a bit of the characters emotion. Potentially higher stress scenes came off rather dry.

    Story
    "Solid hard sci-fi, but the characters are lacking"

    The story is good and the writing is great, There's a lot here that's quite interesting—alternate history, a mysterious Nazi gadget, alternative worlds. What's missing, however, are interesting characters. You don't get to know any characters as much as you'd like, even for a short novella like this. And as interesting as the rest of the elements are, I find it difficult to become invested in a story if I don't care about or even know much about any of the characters involved. Having said that, I did enjoy this enough that I'd probably listen to this again sometime. I haven't made up my mind about whether to continue on with the series yet, though.

    Story
    "Acronym soup / short story"

    I enjoyed this book to a point. It is very short, which is not bad in itself, but I think I would have enjoyed this more if I had understood it was the first in a series of short story's, instead I assumed it was the first book in one cohesive story.

    I liked the 'hard sci-fi' aspect and wished there was more to the alternative history aspect of the story. I think I'd love a full novel of this with this being the first act of the story.

    Acronym soup that was hard for me to keep up with. That issue may be alleviated by reading this in hard copy.

    Note: I received a free copy of this audio book in exchange for an honest review.
