Science Fiction • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2003

In dramatizing this 1953 science-fiction classic of life aboard a spaceship, Paul Michael Garcia perfectly captures the author's trademark mix of adventure, tension, and frequent shipboard monotony. With a well-tuned dramatic ear, Garcia beautifully unfolds the story of young Max Jones—from his days working on his mother's farm to his installment, many adventures later, in the highest ranks of his chosen profession as space navigator. Extra points go to Garcia for his impressive range. Several somber characterizations of ultraserious spacemen fit comfortably alongside his portrayals of Max's perky teenage friend, Eldreth, and her alien pet, the talking "spider puppy" known as Mr. Chips. Young listeners will especially enjoy this production. J.P.M. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2008]
