    • A rather original piece. Even with the age of the story, the science still holds up nicely. Personally, I'd like to see this converted to the Silver Screen. Definitely worth the 4 hours of listening time. For those interested, you can pick up a free copy of this public domain audiobook over at archive .


    • There was nothing particularly outstanding about this book, with a mildly unique premise, improbable pacing and weak characterization. It felt fairly typical of the golden age of science fiction, having both the strengths and weaknesses of its comic book style. Not a difficult read and if one is looking for relatively mindless escapism, this is not unbearable.
