That was a line from one of Paul's books, a line I liked because it gave me a kind of a feeling I couldn't understand. Still, I knew it was a feeling. I'd never thought I would sometime be experiencing what the line meant. But on the run from Ganymede to Mars on Captain Becker's Terrabella, I got the idea. It was as though you didn't need time any more.

Lester Del Rey has an understanding of androids - who can recognize their superior qualities, but ultimate inferiority to humans - that has seldom been equalled

Lester Del Rey has an understanding of androids - who can recognize their superior qualities, but ultimate inferiority to humans - that has seldom been equalled. The story of Rex (a robot named like a dog, incidentally) and his teenaged owner's attempt to get from Ganymede to Earth by stowing away, trickery, and "long-term planning" remains exciting, and is worth hunting up! My brother had this book.

"We're returning to Earth," Paul's father tells him. Paul is wildly excited, for all human beings on the planet Ganymede dream of going back to Earth some day. Then Paul finds out that he cannot take his robot Rex with him. Rex has been his constant companion for sixteen years. Leave him behind? Never! So begins a series of breathtaking adventures in space as Paul and his robot Rex attempt to outwit the forces that seek to separate them.

I first read this book when I was 9. I remember thinking, when I have a son I would love to read this book to him. Sadly, my only child is autistic and he cannot understand the book. Why not buy the book and read it to your children or grandchildren? It is about friendship and the lengths they will go to help each other. Even though it was written in the 60's, Del Rey's vision of the future is still pertinent. It is very well written and is a very good read. Since I will never be able to share the book with my child (I will never have grandchildren) I try to read the book again from time to time. But the tears and my loss interfere. I'll get through the book again someday. Why not read it to your children and remember that there is a person that would give everything to read it to his child.

Like other reviewers here, I fondly remember this book from childhood. It's one of several books that got me hooked on science fiction at an early age. Here's a partial list, which I offer in the hope it might bring back good memories for others.
1. "Miss Pickerell Goes to Mars". For pretty young children. The first sci fi book I remember reading.
2. "The Wonderful Flight to the Mushroom Planet". Eleanor Cameron's classic for slightly older children.
3. "The Runaway Robot".
4. Heinlein's "Rocket Ship Galileo", for teens. (Also his "Tunnel in the Sky").
5. And for teen to adult, the 1930s classic "When Worlds Collide/After Worlds Collide".

Numbers 2,4, and 5 are in print. For 1 and 3, I think you'll have to by a used copy -- I was able to get both on Amazon.

I first read this book over forty years ago, and it's still a favorite. It follows the adventures of Rex, a companion robot, and his teen-aged master Paul, as they make their way from one of Jupiter's moons to Earth. The story is reminiscent of /Huckleberry Finn/, in that Paul had run away from his family, when they are recalled to Earth, in order to find Rex; and Rex had run away from his new master in order to find Paul. Their adventure, told from Rex's point of view, is a memorable reflection on the extent and sacrifices of friendship, the wonder of new worlds, and the nature of life.

I bought this book brand new while in grade school in 1966. I mentally play through parts of this book to this day.

As an adult, I could read it in just a few hours, but I enjoyed it.

I've been a life-long fan of science fiction, to which I credit this book, and Lester Del Rey.

My husband loves this book. It is the first non-picture-book that he read all the way through when he was in school - it is the book that showed him that he could enjoy reading. So, we bought a copy - a used copy, because the book is out of print. It would have all five stars but it is an obviously used copy. The not so obviously used copies are going for much higher prices, though, so I suggest you get it if you can find it! It's a great story and very good for helping young boys learn to love reading.

i first read this novel while still a child forty years ago. it became one of my favorite stories. when my younger daughter was seven, i read it to her as a bedtime story, and she liked it. now that my youngest is turning seven, i'm buying this copy so i can read it to him.
it's a great story about the loyalty of a child and his robot for each other.

Great book to read to your kids as an intro to SciFi. Enjoyable for adults too.
The book that made me into a reader, and re-reading it to my three daughters brought it all home to me again!
