He went around to the Millers for Paul’s first visiphone call, and was already restless from three days of mooching about, wondering what to do and whom to talk to. The screen’s circle showed Paul’s. head and shoulders and, fuzzily, the room behind. He realized he had had some fantastic notion that there would be a landscape-trees and stuff-but of course Paul was in the rehabilitation center, under artificial gravity. The room was very little different from rooms here. Conversation was strained and awkward.
by. Christopher, John. Once again, John Christopher deftly examines social ideas in context of exploration and discovery. It's always nice to follow a plot that isn't solely a good vs evil meme. Though his "grownup" fiction is too violent and dystopic for my taste, the young adult books he wrote wrote examine deep themes of identity, independence, and free thinking.
The Lotus Caves book. This was only other John Christopher book in my elementary school library and I'd hoped to find an adventure just gripping as the Tripods. I remember being a bit disappointed

Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 12 years ago. This story of two boys having an adventure on the lunar surface is a first-rate piece of science fiction. Like L'Engle's "Wrinkle in Time," though ostensibly for younger readers, Mr. Christopher's work is much deeper than it otherwise appears and can be profitably read by both children and adults. It is the rare and talented author who can pull that off successfully.

And the Plant will pamper them until, like the Odyssey's lotus-eaters, they'll relinquish all thoughts of escape. Marty's fight against euphoria, which involves arousing the lethargic, Plant-worshipping Thurgood, is quickly told - more quickly than the Lunarians-at-school episode at the beginning. Altogether it's far from the inexorable rigor of The White Mountains. Fantastic! Fleeing the claustrophobic artificiality of the Moon Bubble, fourteen-year-olds Marty and Steve illegally reconnoiter-the long-abandoned First Station and, following a clue in the journal of "never recovered" Andrew Thurgood, plunge their mechanical crawler into a fragrant, fertile warren of caves.
