Poul Anderson, November 25, 1926 - July 31, 2001 Poul Anderson was born on November 25, 1926 in Bristol, Pennsylvania to parents Anton and Astrid. He earned his degree in Physics from the University of Minnesota, but chose instead to write stories for science fiction magazines, such as "Astounding. Anderson is considered a "hard science fiction" writer, meaning that his books have a basis in scientific fact.

Gatherin’ what bits of information he can, to become part of their picture of Terran Empire. Whereas if our purpose was to break Sector Alpha Crucis loose, make it independent or even bring it under Ythri’s easygoin’ suzerainty-wouldn’t that interest them? Perhaps be worth war, especially if we got Merseian help too-He looked up at Erannath and dreamed of wings which stormed hitherward in the cause of liberty. An exclamation drew him back to his body. They had topped a ridge.

Their casualness was like a benediction. I’m no prig, he insisted to himself. Let them make what they would of their lives on distant, corrupted Terra, or in a near and not necessarily corrupted tineran wagon

Their casualness was like a benediction. Ivar hadn’t imagined himself getting over such an embarrassment, immediately at that. No offense meant, he said. Let them make what they would of their lives on distant, corrupted Terra, or in a near and not necessarily corrupted tineran wagon. A child of Firstmen and scholars had another destiny to follow. Man on Aeneas had survived because the leaders were dedicated to that survivaclass "underline" disciplined, constant men and women who ever demanded more of themselves than they did of their underlings. And self-command began in the inmost privacies of the soul.

I. On the third day he arose, and ascended again to the light. The Aeneans had double the number of their prey, advantage of surprise, will to be free. Dawn gleamed across a sea which had once been an ocean. To north, cliffs lifted blue from the steel gray of its horizon; and down them went a streak which was the falls, whose thunder beat dim through a windless cold. They lacked energy weapons; but a sleet of bullets converged on the artillery piece. Ivar saw its driver cast from his seat, a red rag. We’ve got them!

I. An aircraft out of the west? No. The leaves in their restlessness had confused him. What rose above Hornbeck Ridge was just Creusa. Laughter snapped forth, a sign of how taut were his nerves.

On the third day he arose, and ascended again to the light. The sky stood violet in the west, purple overhead, white in the east where the sun came climbing. But still the morning star shone there, the planet of the First Chosen. I am the first of the Second Chosen, Jaan knew: and the voice of those who choose. To be man is to be radiance.

I have to be in a particular mood to read "Passenger to Frankfurt," because it is, as Agatha plainly says in her introduction, "An Extravaganza." You'll get to experience a little of a German airport; a lot of an ancient German "schloss;" a lovely German forest; Wagnerian music; several interesting characters & several grotesque ones; and a little about how the British Secret service works. It is not a parlor mystery like most of hers; it's more like an adventure. But one thing you should know: If you want a really good analysis of Hitler & the Nazis, you will get one here. Agatha was a chemist's dispenser in both World Wars & she knew.

I'm an Agatha Christie fanatic. I've read all her books more than once and still love them.

I found it very entertaining. It is disjointed and seems to be a pastiche of an action thriller. I thought it was a great deal of fun years ago when I read it and it was this time as well. It is not one of her best books but I enjoyed it.

I have read this book a few times, as I do with most of Agatha Christie's work. She is a favorite of mine and a good author can be enjoyed over and over and over and somehow it is always good and refreshing. Even though this is not at all one of her best works, I still find it entertaining and quite enjoyable.

Normally an Agatha Christie book captures the reader's interest in the first chapter, but not this book. It was disjointed and jumped from one setting to a completely different setting. Evidently she was upset with the state of the world when she wrote this book. I was truly disappointed in the entire book and am sorry I wasted the time reading it.

Not up to the standard of the best Christies. But then I read them all. This one is better than most other mystery writers.

I love Agatha Christie!
Not my favorite Christie. I have nearly all of her books and have read most of them. I had a hard time getting through this one; it is not like most of the others. It's not terrible, but not a must-read.
