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.
The protagonist in this story is a young lad, and the author brings him masterfully and interestingly through a time in the future, through times when he has to step up and be brave, and other times when he is just a boy and appreciates the new-found ability to trust adults around him at times.
The book flows well and reads quickly and is packed with everything I enjoy most in science fiction books. Anyone who already loves Arthur C. Clarke, will enjoy this book!!

A.C. Clark wrote a wonderful short story. Sometimes he goes millions of years. This time maybe 50 or a hundred. The writing is his usual, first class all the way. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Kindle Customer
