Publisher's Summary

Fenris isn't a hell planet, but it's nobody's bargain. With 2,000-hour days and an 8,000-hour year, it alternates blazing heat with killing cold. A planet like that tends to breed a special kind of person: tough enough to stay alive and smart enough to make the best of it. And when that kind of person discovers he's being cheated out of wealth he's risked his life for, that kind of planet is ripe for revolution.

loved it as a kid, in the 1960s.

I loved this book as a junior high school student in the 1960s, and I still thought it was great. Tech, of course, was a bit dated, but the performance was more than acceptable, and the story held up.

Engaging Narrator

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

It is a quick story and I thought the narrator really made it worth the listen. He doesn't seem to be a well-known of more popular narrator but I really enjoyed what he did with the characters, giving them some fun elements.

What does Eric Stuart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I'm not sure I would have enjoyed reading the book since for me, this narrator is what made me enjoy the characters more. I did not like the main character much at all, but I thought his portrayal of some of the side characters was great.

Could you see Four-Day Planet being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

It could probably be made into something as it gives you a nice backdrop on the scenario without needing too much in depth explanation. Definitely would be better then some of the bad Sci-Fi made today!

So great to find an old favorite on audio!

I just love finding old favorite stories in the audio format. This was the very first Audible book I finished and such a great old story. I couldn't help thinking "with a little more romance this would make a great Syfy Channel Saturday movie" and I'm pretty sure the original text is out of copyright. Oh well, dream on. Anyway, the young narrator of the story did a good job although I think there was one or two stumbles in there. Like I said this was my first Audible book so what do I know. A quick fun read.
