Four-Day Planet

Gelesen von Mark Nelson

(4,466 Sterne; 1127 Bewertungen)

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)

I loved it

(5 Sterne)

very well read and a good story! I didn't expect such a variety of themes.


(4,5 Sterne)

Great story with an interesting plot and twists. Always enjoy this author's work.Its a shame that many of the current reviews on older science fiction works like these focus on how dated they are. Of course they are dated! But they are amazing if you recognize the authors imagination and insight into what the future could bring.I not only heard the story ...I saw it..I was there.Its a gift the author gave a long time ago and it still is. Thank you H.Beam Piper for writing it and thank you Mark Nelson for reading it as well as you did!

Great reader!

The story was not quite what I was expecting, but still a bit of fun, and the readers brilliant accents brought it to life!

One of the best Piper stories I've "read"

(5 Sterne)

I really enjoyed this story, it's a good tale, it's full of action and a decent coherent plot. It's not got some of the political angle I don't enjoy in some of his work. There's some dated use of language (like the guy who's nickname is Nip because he looks Japanese) but it's generally free from the problematic stuff one may find in other books of this era. Mark Nelson's reading is quite superb

Good story, Great Reader

(5 Sterne)

Overall, the story was well written and interesting. At times the author failed to commit fully to the sci-fi setting, and the protagonist was just a bit too perfect and knowledgeable, but the plot was enjoyable. The reader did an excellent job. his voice is very articulate, and he created variations to distinguish characters' dialogue.

great story

(3 Sterne)

I don't know whether to give this a three or four for a rating. story is very good but the reading is very wooden. Sometimes I feel like the reader is trying so hard to enunciate clearly that he forgets to put any enthusiasm into his voice. still, it's worth listening to.

like everything about it

(5 Sterne)

Unlike some Piper stories, this one stayed on track instead of too,g off on a bunch of hypothetical science or philosophy. An excellent story of adventure, and intrigue, mixed with some good humor. As always, Mark Nelson did a fantastic job bringing life to the characters and the world.

great audio book for the road!

(4 Sterne)

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!
