Farmer in the Sky by Robert Heinlein

3 out of 5

This book is more about concept than character. A teenage boy becomes a settler on Jupiter and needs to learn the skills it takes to survive. The setting and the technology is more developed than his character which is more about what it takes to survive in such extreme conditions than having a developed identity in and of itself. Lovers of hard sci-fi will love it while other readers may wish the boy had more of a story and personality of his own.
