Description

Stranded on the distant planet Tschai, young Adam Reith is the sole survivor of a space mission who discovers the world is inhabited - not only by warring alien cultures but by human slaves as well, taken early in Earth's history. Reith must find a way off the planet to warn Earth of Tschai's deadly existence.

Against a backdrop of baroque cities and haunted wastelands, sumptuous palaces and riotous inns, Reith will encounter deadly wastrels and murderous aliens, dastardly villains and conniving scoundrels - and always the random beauty in need of rescue.

OMG! I didn't want the story to end! Wonderful!

Would you listen to Planet of Adventure again? Why?

Sure!

What about Elijah Alexander’s performance did you like?

Excellent performance! Really brought the characters to life, thank YOU Elijah!

Any additional comments?

I was really bummed when the story ended. Was a classic adventure of a close knit team of friends who started out as strangers. The escapades and challenges they got into where spell binding and I hated leaving the car and turning the story off! A MUST READ/LISTEN!

Great Narration!

One of my favorite stories. This was narrated so well it transports you to the planet tschai (sp?).
I even got pulled iver for speeding because I wasn't paying attention the story was so well done.

Dated, but still fun.

Overall, a fun romp across a dangerous alien world. Noticeably sexiest at times, but considering the times Jack Vance can be forgiven. Nowadays, you can see how several modern Sci-fi stories, such as Stargate and Predator, were influenced by this. The voice acting gets very annoying at times, but don't let that stop you if you're curious. Adam Reith's trek across Tschai and through nefarious alien plots is a damn good journey.

this is an amazing journey

Which character – as performed by Elijah Alexander – was your favorite?

All of them. I give life to them. Naturally Anacho stands a bit higher because he is so well interpreted

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes absolutely. This is a book that has you traveling across an entire planet to find your way home again.

Any additional comments?

Tschai is apart. It hasn't aged and it remains a delight. The audiobook is extremely good to make it alive. Great job.

Literary Pulp Sci-fi.

I consider this book to be a guilty pleasure book. There isn't any deep intellectual analysis or the like, but it is escapist fun.

Note: this is an omnibus edition of "The City of the Chasch," "The Servants of the Wankh," "The Dirdir" and "The Pnume." Those 4 books are available separately on Audible, but really, this is one novel spread out over 4 books.

The story is pulp sci-fi in terms of plot (space explorer crash lands on strange planet, finds companions and has adventures while trying to get home), but Jack Vance built a varied, interesting and complex world with complex, interesting and varied alien species that are believably dangerous. Also, Vance's writing was more complex and literary than most pulp sci-fi of its class.

I very much enjoyed these books in print and I found the Audible edition to be a good way to enjoy them again.

The narration was good overall...it didn't add much but it definitely didn't hurt the book, either.

Gateway Vance, many have started here

Jack Vance handles otherworldly races and cultures like no other author, with intelligence, a playfully undeniable logic, wit, and an affinity for quirks and odd details. Over four novels, the fantastic and bizarre world of Tschai is revealed as the tale of Adam Reith fully lives up to the promise of the series name. Essential 1940's-1950's SF, and this is a good reading.

Btw, the title of the collection and its list of volume names is misprinted here. It should be:

Planet of Adventure
(or, alternately, Tschai: Planet of Adventure)
City of the Chasch, Servants of the Wankh, The Dirdir, The Pnume

There is no volume titled "The Pnume: The Tschai"

Jack Vance, the best of the best. <br /><br /><br /><br />

Just one of the many masterpieces from one of the greatest authors of SciFy. More of Vance's books should be audiobooked.

Pure sci-fi goodness and an epic hero's journey.

This series was good from the first paragraph to the last word. Vance knew how to write, period. I wholeheartedly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a good story. The narrator was quite good as well.
