    One thought on “Leaping to the Stars”

    1. Whether Leaping, Bouncing or Jumping , Gerrold s three book coming of age story told through the eyes of a teenager is exciting, touching and hilarious Who wouldn t find a robot monkey with a propensity for farting at just the right time for kids, and the wrong time for serious adults funny The science, form the space elevator to surviving on the moon is sound and the story compelling A nice book

    2. The last book in the trilogy, this one is quite a bit didactic than the previous two Which probably makes it Heinleinian, but kills the action I like the message of this book I will always have a fondness for Chigger.

    3. The best of the three so far I actually read the completed part of an ms of a 4th onea while ago onlined that was pretty good too

    4. This is a 14 year old book, aimed at a teen young adult audience but not bad for older readers if youi make allowances The list of books inside the cover suggested that this was 1 of 3, but in fact it is 3 I think I m fine with having read only the one plus, of course When HARLIE Was One, long ago Previous stuff isa explained concisely and effectively HARLIE is a little over the top with its capabilities hint Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes combined are drooling babies by comparison , and Charles is [...]

    5. When I first started the series there were things I didn t like about the first book, but after reading all three, it all comes together quite well.Not only does it provide the adventure of going to the stars, but it also digs deep into the philosophy of man and souls I won t spoil it for you, but I think it gives us a pretty good grasp on where the world is headed right now.For my clean readers Some language and violence Be prepared for discussions about souls and God with your teen It definite [...]

    6. I loved this one If you can only read one of the books in this trilogy, read this one I loved the discussions on what does it mean to be human how do you know the difference between good and evil
