The Road to the Rim: John Grimes, Book 1 | [A. Bertram Chandler]

The Road to the Rim: John Grimes, Book 1

Dragon? Fairies? Frog Princes? Sir Dominik Flandry? In a John Grimes Rim Adventure? Strange things happen out where the stellar medium grows thin, out where it is difficult to say if you remain within the galxay or you're falling through the intergalactic void. Add to that strangeness an Outsider ship filled with technology so far in advance of the human as to appear magical, and the catalytic presence of Commodore John Grimes, and anything can happen - anything at all.

    Story
    "I like this story, even though very dated."
    Where does The Road to the Rim rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a middle of the road audio book. Good entertainment for a fan of mid-20th century science fiction space sailors. I think it's been called the Hornblower of space analogy and I agree. Fun but not earthshaking.


    Would you recommend The Road to the Rim to your friends? Why or why not?

    Fun but not earthshaking. Worth a listen for fans of the genre.

    Story
    "Not great-A Fair Book"

    This book was hard to hold my attention. Not a bad story or narration, but just a fair book.
    I own books 1-6 I bought them at the same time. So I guess I'll have to see how the others are. There are 12 books so far unless the story inproves 6 is all I'll listen to.
