But things are more loose on Mars. There, Doc Feldman is welcomed by the colonists, even as he's hunted by the authorities. But, when he discovers a Martian plague may soon wipe out humanity on two planets, the authorities begin hunting him for a different reason altogether.

This tale from the early 1970s takes a satirical view of medicine,, couched in a "SF Golden Age" style that del Rey helped to create. He started publishing SF stories in 1935 and established the del Rey science fiction imprint from Ballantine with his wife Judy Lynn. The social/political satire ...
I actually enjoyed it. My rating would be an 8 out of 10. The story moved along although there was a lack of character development. The part that annoyed me the most was the very strong union of doctors who do not protect their own kind. Frankly, this was not ...
it was excellent Steven Wilson is a perfect narrator i am looking forward to his new releases
I have to say, I wasn’t in love with this story. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t dreadful to listen to and it also wasn’t horribly written, it just didn’t captivate me. With some work, I’m sure it could be better. With everything that was occurring in the story, there ...
A little juvinile. But well written, reminds me of Heinlin.
This story dates itself. It has the "golden age" kinda hero, who somehow outsmarts everyone else. The depiction of women was sexist, and the political musings that were the thin excuse for the dystopian society were just annoying. Other than that, it was good entertainment.
One of the few stories I've given 5 stars too all around. Great story telling. Like Chris said, reminds me of old Asimov or Philip K Dick type of story. Well written and well read. I'm hooked and can't wait to find out what happens next.
Really excellent Sci Fi book. It's obvious that Lester Del Rey is a classic Sci Fi writer in the same vein as Isaac Asimov.
A very well written, accessable book with a pretty disturbing but all too believable vision of the future.
