Classic 1950's boyhood scifi
Great story. Great science behind the science fiction - most of which is still not too dated to enjoy today. Though some of the 50's attitudes would grate against feminist beliefs today, but if read in a "Leave it to Beaver" mindset of that time, would still be enjoyable.

An Entertaining Read/Listen!
Where does The Stars, Like Dust rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I would put The Foundation Series as Asimov's high water mark, this is secondary storyline (Galactic Empire Series) but worth reading/listening to fit into the larger context.I thought it was great but the Foundation Series is excellent. I consider his Non-Foundation books "boyhood science fiction", entertaining and well worth the effort but not as complex. You can almost see the blueprint here for later works by other artists, writers and move makers. Asimov is the original (in my opinion).
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Stars, Like Dust?
I like the way it ended, there was a twist that I did not see coming....
What about Stephen Thorne’s performance did you like?
I thought he did a great job! The different characters had different voices, I am always surprised how the best narrators do this....he was fantastic.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It's not that type of material (to me). It reminds me of the old Buck Rodgers TV show a little bit, entertaining and a great diversion.
Any additional comments?
I would recommend it to anyone to enjoys SF and wants to fill out their understanding of the Asimov cannon. Good book for a vacation, the beach or just wan to mentally "get away".
