    "Interesting Story"

    I really like the main concept behind the book, but wasn't too sure if the Earth-side affairs were as interesting as I hoped they would be.

    Story
    "Classic Sci Fi - even predicts the Ipad!"
    Where does Imperial Earth rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the better audio books I have downloaded. The narrator reads it well and does a good job of bringing the story to life


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Imperial Earth?

    One of the best bits, on hearing it now after 20 years, is the predictions ACC made in technology. The communications gear is a little bizarre but with a very little imagination you can see the world of 21st century smart phones in his visualisation.


    Any additional comments?

    When this was published I did not rate it as one of his best but listening now ACC shows a depth of imagination that leaves you breathless.
