Breaking Strain (Arthur C. Clarke's Venus Prime, Book 1)

  • Au­thor: Paul Preuss
  • Rat­ing:
  • See in goodreads
  • Re­view:

    This book has an in­­ter­est­ing his­­to­ry: take a Clarke short sto­ry, try to tun it in­­­to a text ad­ven­­ture game, fail, then pad it in­­­to a nov­el.

    Paul Preuss is a de­­cent writer, and it is, re­al­­ly quite a bit more sta­is­­fy­ing (as a sto­ry) than Clarke's orig­i­­nal (I re-read it af­ter­ward­s, to see if I re­mem­bered it cor­rec­t­­ly).
