A group of space travelers embark on a journey from Earth to a distant sun. Upon reaching their destination they find four plants circling this sun and decided to land on one of them. They were greeted with what looked to be the same environment as Earth. But things were not what they seemed. Things were horribly wrong....

I'm sure everyone knows the jest of this book. I know it from the movie. One of my all-time favorites. So I was quite surprised to find a few key things different in the book. Good, but different. Except for one. I remember in the movie, my favorite character was Cornelius. And he was a very insignificant character in the book. He wasn't even mentioned until page 129.

I really enjoyed this one, the writing was very scientific yet it flowed effortlessly and I followed along without becoming lost in a world of hi-tech jargan. I think I will even read the next book.
