Review: Tunnel in the Sky (Heinlein Juveniles #9)

User Review  - Jonathan Harbour - Goodreads

This is an unusually poor example of Heinlein's imagination and writing ability. It seems to want to be taken seriously, but must conform to the Juvenile market without quite wanting to admit it. This ... Read full review

User Review  - Karen Mardahl - Goodreads

User Review  - Thomas Fackler - Goodreads

Tunnel in the Sky works over the William Golding farce that is Lord of the Flies. The hardwired need for survival tends to override the whimsical nature of blood-lust and petty squabblery. These exist ... Read full review

User Review  - Nial O'farrell - Goodreads
