Publisher's Summary

Stranded on the distant planet Tschai, young Adam Reith is the sole survivor of a space mission who discovers the world is inhabited - not only by warring alien cultures but by human slaves as well, taken early in Earth's history. Reith must find a way off the planet to warn Earth of Tschai's deadly existence.
Against a backdrop of baroque cities and haunted wastelands, sumptuous palaces and riotous inns, Reith will encounter deadly wastrels and murderous aliens, dastardly villains and conniving scoundrels - and always the random beauty in need of rescue.

Dated, but still fun.

Overall, a fun romp across a dangerous alien world. Noticeably sexiest at times, but considering the times Jack Vance can be forgiven. Nowadays, you can see how several modern Sci-fi stories, such as Stargate and Predator, were influenced by this. The voice acting gets very annoying at times, but don't let that stop you if you're curious. Adam Reith's trek across Tschai and through nefarious alien plots is a damn good journey.

OMG! I didn't want the story to end! Wonderful!

Would you listen to Planet of Adventure again? Why?

Sure!

What about Elijah Alexander’s performance did you like?

Excellent performance! Really brought the characters to life, thank YOU Elijah!

Any additional comments?

I was really bummed when the story ended. Was a classic adventure of a close knit team of friends who started out as strangers. The escapades and challenges they got into where spell binding and I hated leaving the car and turning the story off! A MUST READ/LISTEN!
