It sucked me into this slightly futuristic world and I felt a strong affinity with the main character, a kid about my age that had no family and stowed away on a hover ship that had made an emergency stop near his house. When the ship goes down somewhere over the vast Pacific Ocean, his new life begins.
That imagery of the solitude - alone on the vast ocean at night, the blinking satellite somewhere in orbit above tracking slowly across the star filled sky...the imagery has stayed with me my whole life. I often think of such powerful descriptions from the book when I am far from the city on a serene night.
It is a powerful story, evocative and a perfect adventure for a young reader.
Like some other reviewers I read this book first as a 12-14 year old. It is one of the few books that I have kept a copy of from that time, and my collection has been ruthlessly pruned over time. The technology is still advanced, maybe more interesting today because some of it is closer,
Excellent adventure, inspires the imagination, and well based in real science.
I'm keeping my copy around for my kids and their kids!

I've loved this novel since I was 10 years old, and have re-read it uncountable times. Anything that Arthur C Clarke writes is gold, but this is very accessible for young adults. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Janet Shannon
