    Good space adventure but it ends weakly as many of the stories from that period do. The hero doesn't get the girl in the end because that might not be proper and young men might not understand about girls. The book ignores the fact that those young men already do. Still... it's accurate for it's time.

    A most enjoyable book. Fast paced and light hearted. One of the best I have heard in quite a while.
