The Robinson family is blasting off again, in an all-new version of the immortal SF classic starring Gary Oldman, William Hurt, Matt LeBlanc, Mimi Rogers and Heather Graham. The world they are fleeing has changed dramatically, and so has their deep space mission.
The Robinsons lift off from a dying Earth, sickened by pollution and overpopulation. They pilot a hyperdrive spaceship through quantum wormholes and across relativistic reefs in search of a new Eden, Alpha Primean unspoiled planet light-years away, where humankind will get its second and last chance. And they face enemies more awesome, more devious and more lethal than anything they ever faced before.

Joan Vinge has been described as "one of the reigning queens of science fiction" and is renowned for creating lyrical human dreams in fascinatingly complex future settings. She has won the Hugo for her novel The Snow Queen. Vinge is the author of the bestselling Return of the Jedi Storybook, World's End, and Psion, Kirkus called her novel Catspaw, "an engrossing and satisfying read." The Summer Queen, a sequel to The Snow Queen, was published in 1991. She is currently writing two novels set in the Bronze Age. Dreamfall, which Publisher's Weekly called a "richly detailed and suspenseful sequel to Catspaw," was on the Locus 1996 Recommended Reading List.From AudioFile:
This is an undistinguished reading of an abridged version of a disappointing story by an otherwise well-regarded science fiction author. The main gripe of reviewers is that Vinge has injected dysfunctional family elements into the familial paradise of the insipid 1960's TV series. Narrator Mimi Rogers, who portrayed Maureen Robinson in the movie, reads smoothly enough but makes almost no attempt to distinguish the characters. Only the bad guy and the little boy are recognizable, the former by an unclassifiable accent and the latter by minor shrillness. What praise the movie garnered was for special effects, and there aren't any in this audio version. D.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
