Description

A tale beloved by many fans of Robert A. Heinlein, Podkayne of Mars tells the story of a young Marswoman and her interplanetary adventures with her uncle and her genius brother. Told largely through Podkayne's diaries, the story details her travel to Earth with her two companions. Podkayne has definite plans on what to do and how to do it, but not everything is as it seems. She is suddenly thrust into the middle of life-or-death situations when the liner they are traveling on makes a stop at Venus. Heinlein was originally asked to change the controversial ending, and he reluctantly did. But he felt the original ending better suited the story and was never satisfied with the modified "safer" ending. This edition restores the book to how Heinlein originally wrote it.

Professional reviews

"Podkayne "Poddy" Fries and her younger genius brother, Clark, leave their home on Mars to take a trip on a "spaceliner" to visit Earth (via Venus), accompanied by their uncle. Narrating the excerpts from Poddy's diary, Emily Janice Card adopts the confident tone of a teenager who aspires to be the first woman starship captain. She talks about her brother with the condescending tone of a slightly older sister who feels the burden of looking out for a sibling who finds her superfluous. In the portions of the story told by Clark, Card smoothly delivers the attitude of one who bears the burden of being smarter that anyone else he knows.
