Fenris isn't a hell planet, but it's nobody's bargain. With 2,000-hour days and an 8,000-hour year, it alternates blazing heat with killing cold. A planet like that tends to breed a special kind of person: tough enough to stay alive and smart enough to make the best of it. When that kind of person discovers he's being cheated of wealth he's risked his life for, that kind of planet is ripe for revolution. (Introduction from the Gutenberg text)(6 hr 20 min)
This book is very thorough, possibly one of the best I've listened to on librivox. The reader only makes a few, hardly noticeable, mistakes throughout the entire reading. While some parts show the age of the book they are very easy to look past. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys sci-fi or fantasy.
Slow to start, but good.
The plot was good, however the first 6-7 chapters could have been condenced. Other than that it was fun and interesting. I particularly enjoyed the the future tech that would seem outdated to modern standards. It definetly dates itself, but that is half it's charm.
4 Day Planet
Great nostalgic story. Fun for the whole family. I appreciate the fact that the vulgarity has been left out. Definitely from a simpler time.
This was an interesting book... as someone else noted, it's interesting to see the mix between old and new technology: a newspaper man on a hyperspace ship is an interesting mix to me :-)
great audio book for the road!
An excellent narration of a pretty good golden age sci fi novel! It's fun to see some of the thoughts or stereotypes from the age that are projected into the future such as the technology behind newspaper offices. A great read/story for the road!
A really enjoyable story to listen to !
Most excellently written and read book. It lacks a lot of the techno glitches so garishly present in other books that have been penned in past times to describe how the book's author sees our modern days.
Has a great narrator.
This has a good theme, however the auther prolongs the less important parts and shortens the sections with the actions. All in all a fair story.
I've enjoyed other stories by this author, but this was boring. It was not terrible, there were certainly interesting elements to it, but overall this seems to have been a short story concept. Not enough happened to warrant that much listening time. Narration was adequate.
