Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased this book because it was about man living on the Moon. I have always been fascinated by stories set on the Moon - I guess this comes from growing up at the time of the Moon Landing.

This is my first novel by Arthur C. Clarke, and as I enjoyed the style of writing immensely - will certainly not be my last!

I found this book easy to read; enjoyable, and with just about the right amount of suspense to keep me satisfied without all those over-long and invented words and names that become so tiresome in this genre... About the only criticism (and it is small) that I would have, is the fact that there was not enough story before the big 'accident' outlining life as it is on the Moon. I would have liked more background to day-to-day living by the Moon's inhabitants to begin with - but it seemed to me the Author appeared a little too eager to get into the 'life threatening' and crisis situation part of the story way too soon...

However; a very enjoyable read indeed that I could recommend to any SF fan.

NOTE: 'SF Masterworks' series has some of the finest examples in this genre, and I find do stunningly attractive artwork for their chosen titles, but the quality of these Editions leave a lot to be desired... The print, though bold is poor somehow; there are numerous spelling errors, missing or duplicated words - and even the print is not the same size throughout! It's also a bit small too for my liking - but I'm always 'seduced' by the outstanding and enticing artwork!

I am particularly pleased to see this available, as I restored it to the BBC archives from a reel-to-reel tape I had recorded of 'Saturday Night Theatre' on BBC Radio 4 in October 1975. It had lain forgotten until the BBC 'Treasure Hunt' was advertised. I then checked all my BBC radio recordings, and this was the only one not in the BBC Sound Archives. I received two CDs of it & a thank-you letter from the Head of BBC Sound Archives, Simon Rook. Martyn Miles Winey Oxon .

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Clare O'Beara TOP 500 REVIEWER on 30 Nov. 2012
Format: Paperback
A dust cruiser is submerged in a dust dune on the lunar surface, and as with a modern submarine the passengers must wait for outside help with dwindling resources and specific engineering and physics problems for their rescuers to face.
It's a simple enough idea but the novel setting and details are brilliant. Think of the consistency of the dust, the lower gravity meaning that it hangs in the 'space' above ground when disturbed, the vacuum and cold hampering rescue efforts. Every idea we can think of is shot down for some reason and the challenge inside is to stay calm. The passengers have two books, and elect to read aloud 'The Orange and the Apple', a saucy tale of a meeting between Isaac Newton and Nell Gwynn. That kind of little human detail is enough to bring them alive and make us care about the rescue.

Yes this is dated now, but it's great fun and not too long. It's a good read.
