Loving it from Borneo

(4 stars)

I've been listening to only modern sci-fi these past couple of years, so it was a real treat to come home to a 1961 old school space opera. There's something about the structure and a lack of any cockiness and smugness and over-the-top narration with bells and whistles - it's so endearing. Sci-fi unplugged. Also...Mark Nelson is the consummate narrator...I have missed his warm delivery. The story is an interesting concept...would liked to have seen where our protagonist went next...

I need to find more stories by Evelyn E. Smith. It will be interesting to see how her stories develop. I have contrary opinions on how I liked this one. I would have liked the end to be different, yet almost any other ending would have been wrong.
