Very easy to read, well written, and contained a lot of human relations as well a science fiction. Had to stop about three quarters into it because I needed to get some work done.

I enjoyed this book and it was a quick read. Love science fiction stories and this was interesting for how early it had been written!

Grand scale, amazing plot, considering the time it was written. Contemporary with Arthur C. Clarke's "The city and the stars"/ "Against the fall of night" this story line has almost as complex and as surprising of an unraveling. For the "wrong science" valid alternatives with similar consequences can be imagined and it cannot spoil the well conceived event sequence with the very intuitive life-like psychological reactions of characters. This work is an ignored Sci-Fi classic.

This was a great read. I highly recommend this book to any si fi fan and to anyone intersted in a very well written story.

Interesting bit of history. If you can ignore the terrible science and forced philosophy, the actual story is fairly interesting with surprising twists and turns.

Really fun! I've never read anything quite like it. Clear descriptions, cool characters, and a sense of awe about space that we've lost today.

A nice 1950 view of post-apocalyptic Earth. Interesting because of the old science in it science fiction. Plus not so subtle sexism. Finally, there are elements of the pre-Star Trek era that were nice and relatable.
