Starts off a little iffy, but the author has a quick and easy style that lends itself to this kind of story. This is one of those 'Sci Fi' stories where the characters quickly end up on a back-water, lo-tech world, and so you've essentially got a Fantasy setting.

The story is interesting, and moderately well thought out. There is a fair bit of meandering, but it is mostly interesting. The real problem is that at 159 pages, it either needed to stay more focused, or be expanded to adequately meander. Knowing the age of the book, it was probably a limitation of the publisher.

Not a great book, but a quick, enjoyable read, that I would recommend to a 50/60s pulp sci-fi/fantasy reader. ( )
