This is not the same story.

This is one of my favorite books, I thought it would be fun listening to it. I don't know why but the names are changed and the story is different, though the same premise. Do not buy this version. It is not nearly as good and it's not the original story. I guess somebody thought they could do better with Arthur C. Clarke's story. Very disappointing.

a shortstory that later lead to a well loved book

this short story is different than the full length book although it has mani simularaties. it is a fine story but the full book is buch better with fuller character and backstory. i resomend both but they each stand on there own.
