Summary

A jolly romp, which could be perhaps be described as Gulliver’s Travels Through Our Solar System and Beyond, as written by a great admirer of C. S. Lewis, on a rainy Sunday afternoon, after one too many mugs of cocoa. Includes some thought on alien philosophies and how to apply them to moral and social problems here on Planet Earth.

Reviews

Francois Coetzee

Fascinating 152 years after the author was born....we still wonder about planetary system's life support capacity

- Is it worth it?

Very dated in story line and language. May be worth a listen, if you can get over its ponderous nature, but I couldn’t be bothered for more than a few chapters.
