This was the perfect sequel to When Worlds Collide. It saw our adventurers explore, tame, and survive in their brave new world. Is it dated, sure, but that was some of the fun, too! Imagine how you would explain a microwave oven to someone in the Pre-WWII era...they describe something that sounded like one to me! There are several "discoveries" they make on Bronson Beta that sound like current objects. I kept waiting for a Twilight Zone ending that said they "jumped" onto the real Earth, but to a century later. The really fast cars, the "instant food", the magically opening doors, all of it is really fun to watch them explain with 1930's science. Also, imagine if you didn't know that nuclear radiation could be problematic and all of the things you would use it for if you could.
I really loved this, and hope you will too. You will need it to complete your picture if you are going to read the first one. The jump to the new planet was only the beginning!

Fun to read old sci-fi. Absolutely no computers in this story. Interesting to see how an advanced society would exist by author from the 1930's.

Following the last excellent novel, this second book follows the continuous adventures of the American and one French and one Japanese colonist. The book continues on the high adventure filled with hope, tragedies, astonishment and shock of what human nature can bring to its surface.
For me this was a great book once again brought to life by Peter Ganims voice and storytelling abilities; and once again I couldn’t stop listening. This is a great piece of Sci-Fi.
