Tunnel in the Sky - Robert A. Heinlein

Tunnel in the Sky - Robert A. Heinlein 


Tunnel in the Sky is a perfect specimen of post Golden Age 1950's sci-fi.  It's like an episode of old-school Star Trek in written form and I imagined the main character, Rod, as a very young William Shatner throughout the entire book.  Does it make me ponder the meaning of life?  No, but it's a very entertaining read and just plain good, old-fashioned fun.
