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...

(4 stars)

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.

Sentry of the Sky

(5 stars)

Great read, a space yarn promoting the underdog in a story of intrigue, and distrust fueled by fear and ignorance which all manages to wrap up quite neatly in a dizzying finale. Recommended

Fascinating short story

(4 stars)

Liked this a lot, but it was too short. The theme could have had a few more chapters. I wasn't thrilled with ending. Mark thanks for your reading

Corn Smith at his best

(4 stars)

love the reader. kinda felt it actually had an ending but an editor finished it to fit copy.

(3 stars)

Overall the book was good but the ending was a little anti-climatic. As always Mark Nelson does a fantastic job narrating.
