  • "Shatner writes himself back to life"

    Overall

    In many ways I get the feeling that Shatner wrote this book because he couldn't cope with the idea of a star trek universe without Kirk. Kirk is the out and out hero in this book and while most of our other favourite characters appear, this is a kirk story.



    The book shares Shatner's bombastic sensibility and addresses many of the failings of the 'generations' film. The book is a no holes barred adventure and is has a unique charm. If you enjoy Shatner's sense of humour and grandiosity you will like this.

P. D. Smith's greatest hits:
  • Journey into Space: Operation Luna, Episodes 1-13

    "Wonderful dramatisation"

    Overall

    This is a great story. It was originally on BBC Radio in the 50's (before the actual moon landings) and it's interesting to hear how the author thought they would be.

    Strange things start happening shortly after take-off and we get 6 1/2 hours of cliff-hanger after cliff-hanger, with great voice acting. You just want to keep listening to find out what's going to go wrong next :)

    The kids enjoyed listening to this on the way to school and kept wanting to stay longer in the car so they could hear to the end of the episode.

    The only thing that got slightly on my nerves was the 50's attempt to make 'spacy' music (which is over-loud and a bit grating), but quick action on the volume control sorted that out.

    I'm looking forward to downloading the second series (also on Audible).

  • "Different but enjoyable"

    2 of 2 helpful votes

    Not only are the actors different but the characters they play only barely resemble the Discovery's crew from the previous 3 stories. However, despite this I still enjoyed it and was so pleased to be able to hear it as it is unavailable to buy in cd/ tape format. If you enjoyed the other 3 this is well worth a listen.

    The final adventure in the classic science-fiction series. Charles Chilton's sci-fi trilogy stormed the BBC airwaves during the 1950s. Its gripping story lines, extra-terrestrial sound effects, and atmospheric music engaged listeners as never before. Between 1953 and 1958, a devoted audience of adults and children attentively followed Captain Jet Morgan and his crew from one cliff-hanger to another as, together, they faced the unknown perils of space.

    This is the "so-called" reason the government won't reveal all they know about UFOs. The panic from this broadcast was significant. Although Orson Welles, Mercury Theatre and the Columbia Broadcasting System couldn't "soap the windows" of their listeners the night before Halloween back in 1938, they could annihilate the world for them. And that's exactly what they did with this radio adaptation of H.G. Wells' famous novel, War of the Worlds.
