Enjoyable


(4.5 stars)

I really enjoyed this Buck Rodgers adventure and found it much different than the TV version of Buck Rodgers. A very fun quickly read story of Buck first waking up in a whole new world and how he adapts to it and to the people plus their struggles! Very well read and a good listen.

Fun, Entertaining Book


(4 stars)

Good Reading, pretty interesting story. I've listened to couple of early 20th century sci-fi stories now and I really enjoy hearing what they thought the future would bring... plus hearing the beginning of Buck Rogers is really cool.

classic science fiction at its best


(5 stars)

I always like the Buck Rogers story, but to hear the original that started it all was fantastic, great classic science fiction.
