Well worth the revisit.

First read as a secondhand paperback costing 1\6d.(that's 7.5p for the non pre-decimal). Loved it then and enjoyed it now.

As good as I remember it.

As good as I remember it. I first read it in the 1960s as part of my growing love for Clarke.

not a space opera but a good listen

good story but sounds dated thanks to the 70s technology references. science as usual is sound
