The way this book is written, it easily puts you in the position of the tourists on the Selene who are trapped by "the fall of moondust". When you're reading the story, you feel as if this could happen to you.
This novel isn't "Childhood's End" but it is a good, suspenseful disaster story much better than anything Irwin Allen, the King of Hollywood disaster movies, ever came up with. It would make a very good movie and I've always wondered why no one in Hollywood ever produced one based on this work. I would definitely pay to go see such a movie.
I'm looking forward to reading the unabridged version on the Kindle.
This is an interesting read in that it shows the sensibilities of popular scifi writers and readers 50-60 years ago.
I remember reading this book in high school and thought by the time I was ready to retire I would be one of those living on the Moon. Of course, I was wrong.
The story is well thought out and is given the science and technology availabe at the time, and even today, very believable. The characters are strong and you can care what they do.
This is a book that if you are into classic SCI-FI fron the golden age, you need to read.
Love the science in this. love the plot - the pacing is right on. the rational of the characters and situation is so well done. Didn't expect it to be so great and funny.
I'm told that historically it was right in with the thoughts of the time - we were about to walk on the moon and it was proposed that the moon was just dust like a lake. The lander would sink into the lake - much like the plot of the book where a tourist vessel becomes endangered on the one and only lunar dust lake.
