25. Seahorse in the Sky by Edmund Cooper

Title: Seahorse in the Sky
Author: Edmund Cooper
Publisher:
Year: 1980
# of pages: 182
Date read: 4/7/2010
Rating: 3*/5 = good


Description:


"Eight men and eight women, with curious bumps on the backs of their heads, and no memory of anything but an interrupted journey, a flight that never landed. They emerged from their green plastic coffins one by one, into the sunlight of an endless alien plain." -- from fantastic.fiction.co.uk

My thoughts:

This is a good science fiction story about different groups of people finding themselves in a very new and unexpected place. I liked how they figured out how to get beyond the river valley and learn who brought them there and why.
