As happens so often in the Sci Fi novel, the author's commonsense doesn't get off the ground with his rockets and his unencumbered imagination soars blithely through clouds of cliche or nonsense--which brings us to this tale of Who shall Overcome...Man or Machine... Pilot vs. computerized Rocket? An adventure of greed, love, action, the alien vs. the ordinary terrific pilot guy who makes good, survives obstacles, and brings home the now totally subsurvient baby. For all its message and moon meanderings, oddly mechanical. Next shot?
