Listener Opinions

    " Read again, still a classic of it's day. Really dated in manner and the lovey dovey talk between the four main protaganists aboard THE SKYLARK really was cringeworthy. Men are real men, good sports or cads and bounders, and women are little more than arm candy, still that was the time of pure SPACE OPERA and no one did it better than E.E"Doc"Smith. "

    " Old Old School Sci fi almost painful to read as it started most of the genre formulas used by Star Trek, Star Wars, Tarzan, and Flash Gordon. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joshua | 1/27/2014

    " discover a formally unknown chemical reaction, talk to your hideously rich friend, build a space ship, get married to the most beautiful woman in the world and conquer an alien planet. awesome. this book is brilliant, ignores some rather obvious issues with relativity and the hostile environment of space but is fantastic, but is perhaps better for this. "

    " sorry to say, didn't enjoy this book, it started out alright, seemed to be going in an interesting direction, however, I had to force myself to read the last third of the book to see if it could redeem itself, no such luck, simple writing and plot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathy | 12/26/2013

    " This one just makes me giggle! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Greg | 12/11/2013

    " One of those really fun reads. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jason Carlough | 12/11/2013

    " At first it was ok but about halfway through it has really started to break now. This really hasn't aged well and I don't think I'm going to be finishing it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirk | 12/2/2013

    " This book was okay. It had some little conflicts here and there but the conflicts wrap up way to quickly and easily. It ended on a better note and made me interested in moving on to the second book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Arthur | 11/15/2013

    " A wondrous adventure in a man built spaceship. While the scientific meanings were broad enough it was the plot, well timed dialogue and the eloquence of the language set in that period, and the setting which appears in a near future which made this very interesting reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doug Farren | 11/14/2013

    " I read this one a LONG time ago. The Skylark series is a classic which I periodically go back and reread every decade or so. The science is outdated and the level of technology is a bit too far-fetched but it's still a classic space opera. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jimmy Two Sandwiches | 3/30/2013

    " plenty of science that you shouldn't think about and 20s slang. a real hoot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zachary | 12/2/2012

    " A classic piece of sci-fi. I did not expect this to become the escalating interstellar romp it evolved into. Definitely enjoyed it, definitely recommend it to any fans of adventure and/or sci-fi. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kat | 9/6/2012

    " Extra-pulpy, classic scienti-fiction! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 7/20/2012

    " For such an early sci-fi story, this is surprisingly good. Some of the technology is a little silly, and it's very space opera, but overall I quite enjoyed it. Would be nice to see some stronger female characters, but I guess that goes with the times. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jim | 6/17/2011

    " His Lensman series is better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 6/15/2011

    " Another totally fun space adventure by E. E. "Doc" Smith -- filled with handsome, brave, honorable men and sexy, brave, honorable ladies, with a smattering of freaky aliens and some nearly-human (but not quite) ones. Plus battles with spaceships! And inventions! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles McGonigal | 4/23/2011

    " Much like Casablanca, this book's innovations are today's cliches. Outdated in many ways, but enjoyable. So far superior to Princess of Mars that I have hope for reading old sci-fi again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pete | 1/18/2010

    " Pretty decent book -- reminded me of Tom Swift and Edgar Rice Burroughs. Simple story, like a G.A. Henty novel set in space. Overall, pretty enjoyable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 CJ | 3/28/2008
