Islands in the Sky

(1952)
(The first book in the Space Trilogy series)
A novel by

 
The story of 'Island in the Sky' centers around a young man, who, after brilliantly winning a space-related competition, requests a vacation on a space station as his prize. It is written with Arthur C. Clark's obvious knowledge of science, but moves at a page turning rate througout the entire narrative. The short novel gives a realistic possiblilty of work and play in future space, hightened with constant excitment and action. Charater development is very good, as are the not-overdone (but still awsome) visual descriptions.
