This is science fiction at its best. * Sunday Mail *
A For Andromeda... is essential reading for anyone who wants to know what British science fiction was like before the 'New Worlds' writers rose to fame (and before the 'Star Wars' generation infantilised the genre): a time when SF could be both intelligent and popular with a wide audience. -- Amazon Reviewer
A good read. I remember the original BBC version, Julie Christie and all. I have seen the latest version, so it was good to go back to the original book. -- Amazon Reviewer
A first-class novel, original and disturbing. It is a brightly written, really exciting tale with the added inducement of scientific accuracy. * Weekly Science Diary *
