Condition: well read
Islands in the Sky
none, WTB 06
A young boy argues his way to a space station after
having won a television quiz-show about rockets. His
price was a trip to "anywhere in the world".
He argued that the space station was, by some definition
in a certain radius that still belonged to the planet.
A whole bunch of adventures the young man has to experience,
with some science stuck in the gaps to educate the reader.
It really is a novel for kids aged 14 to 17 (back in
the day) that could well have happened on sea, in the
desert, in the arctic regions or anywhere else sufficiently
remote and attractive.
Nice read, though. Very innocent.
