A virtuoso tale of Soviet science fiction from the Strugatsky brothers, written with intelligence and sensitivity. The Yuri characters first trip into space becomes an adventure, as emergencies cause delays on Mars, the moon and Jupiter. They encounter despotic leaders and find the value in kindness and human dignity. Reminiscent of 'Childhood's End', this novel shows the authors as more resourceful and energetic. The provocative scenario has parallels to Soviet politics.
