    " Much better then his other Hugo winner, this is an interesting story where humans get caught in the middle (kind a non-humorous version of the "Hitchhikers Guide to the Universe". Does a good job explaining what will happen if a body the size of the moon where to enter orbit - and start munching on the moon. Quick read. "

    " I agree with someone else's review "I finished this one out of sheer stubbornness." Accept I don't think I'll be finishing it. About a 7th of the way is and not warming up to it at all. The premise is interesting but the characters and events so far are not engaging. "

    " What would happen if a new planet appears in the sky over Earth? That's the question that Leiber answers. It's interesting....written in 1964, set in a near future ( I would say it would be the 70s) when the US and the USSR have bases on the Moon. When the story focusses on "the saucer people"-Americans who are interested in UFOs-it's interesting, but the story bogs down following other characters. Still, it was a fast read... "

    " According to those in the know, Mark Clifton's They'd Rather Be Right is the worst novel to ever win a Hugo award. I disagree. THIS is the worst Hugo book I've read - and if there are any worse, I fear for my ability to finish my "read all the Hugo novels" project. "

    " Utter drivel. Worst Hugo award winner ever. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jesse | 1/18/2014

    " it may be his masterpiece, but it isn't much as far as sf thrillers go. and he seems to have some kind of furry thing going on here. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stef | 11/29/2013

    " Audiobook narrated by William Dietz. Fun example of classic hard SF, in some ways broader ranging and better written than other books of its type and era (1964), although the human / alien catgirl romance is a bit cringeworthy. Won the Hugo Award in 1965. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jonathan Minville | 11/26/2013

    " Great sci-fi setting with the whole alien planet/doomsday scenario. Horrible characters with truly cringe-worthy dialogue. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alex | 9/27/2013

    " It started dull, and didn't really pick up. There were a few amusing parts aboard The Wanderer and with Tigerishka. Otherwise, much build up and no pay off. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Quent | 8/6/2013

    " Science fiction. We are not alone. One day, we could have visitors. Maybe they'll be friendly. Maybe not!! "

    " Hated it! The first book I ever gave up on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Danzaiss | 11/28/2012

    " I wasn't captivated by this book but that's probably just me. It was a re-read and the 3rd SciFi hugo-winning novel in a row. "

    " Read it in the mid-Nineties. Didn't like it much. Gave it away. "

    " 2009.0717-20090724
    With too many charitors and little resolution I can't recommend this book. I gave it 2 stars only because there is one very interesting sense. "
