Review: The Stars, Like Dust

The Stars, Like DustThe Stars, Like Dust by Isaac Asimov
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Surprised at how boring this old classic Asimov turned out to be. The plot was just plodding. Had a very hard time finishing it. Almost DNF. It only gets 2 stars because it’s Asimov; can’t bring myself to give it a well-deserved 1 star. It’s not age. Plenty of sci-fi from the 40s/50s that I still read. Just a bad novel.
