    1. It was interesting to see that even in 1957, Asimov had formulated his famed Three laws of Robotics. It is especially interesting since this was penned by "Paul French", a pseudonym Asimov used early in his career. The title page has Paul French on it. When this copy was rebound, they put Asimov's name on the spine. I suppose Asimov was still unknown enough that people wouldn't have necessarily connected the Three Laws of Robotics with him. I have no idea why my system had this book as juvenile. [...]


    2. The world of Isaac Asimov's Lucky Starr is a young science geek's wildest dream come true. Imagine: a thousand years from now, the solar system's secret agents and protectors of the weak areientists! —Who don't mind showing off what they know!Dr. Asimov often lamented the pernicious and ever-growing current of anti-intellectualism in American society. Was his series of young-adult Lucky Starr novels merely the public expression of an escapist fantasy universe, or did he intend to win young, in [...]


    3. Lucky Starr and the Moons of Jupiter (Lucky Starr, #5), Isaac AsimovLucky Starr and the Moons of Jupiter is the fifth novel in the Lucky Starr series, six juvenile science fiction novels by Isaac Asimov that originally appeared under the pseudonym Paul French. The novel was first published by Doubleday & Company in August 1957. It is the only novel by Asimov set in the Jovian system.


    4. On Jupiter’s most remote moon Adrastea, or Jupiter Nine, a revolutionary anti-gravity project, known as Agrav, is under investigation—again. This time, the Council of Science has sent their most resourceful troubleshooter, David “Lucky” Starr, and his diminutive sidekick, John Bigman Jones. Though what Bigman lacks in stature, he compensates for in bravery and bravado—a combustible mix that often ignites trouble for the pair.Upon arrival on Jupiter Nine, Starr and Jones are immediately [...]


    5. If I was told that one day I will give an Asimov written story anything less than perfect I would have thought that person didn't know me at all. But here I'm giving this book a 4. Compared to Lucky's other books this one contained a bit more science than usual. it's not necessarily bad but there were all in one chapter and I can even say in 2-3 pages. it was all about describing how Jupiter looks like and how its moon moves and how sunset and sunrise look like which made the story boring. other [...]


    6. Viel besser als ich die Luckys in Erinnerung hatte. Eigentlich geradezu gut. Einfach gestrickt aber gut. In der Tat so einfach, dass ich doch gleich in dem Hund den Roboter vermuten konnte. Mit ordentlichem Namen und ohne Bigman wäre das ganz okay.


    7. Imaginaba que el sistema de espionaje tenía que ver con los animales pero la revelación fue toda una sorpresa. Como siempre, muy emocionante.


    8. Dopo il mezzo passo falso su Mercurio, le vicende di Lucky Starr riprendono una quota accettabile in questo quinto episodio che trasporta il lettore sui (e fra i) satelliti del più grande pianeta del sistema solare. Ambientare la vicenda su Giove stesso sarebbe stata impresa problematica anche per uno del calibro del Dottore, così eccoci su una delle lune esterne, dove si sta assemblando la prima astronave con motore antigravitazionale. Le relazioni sociali sul pianeta-cantiere sono quelle di [...]


    9. Information about a secret research project is being leaked to the Sirians, and Lucky Starr and Bigman are sent to investigate. The research facility on the ninth moon of Jupiter is working on an antigravity drive (or Agrav) which would generate power while dropping into a gravity well, and use that same stored power to push the ship back out of the gravity well. Theoretically such a drive would open up planets and satellites for exploration previously though unreachable. But Lucky and Bigman ar [...]


    10. Como siempre Isaac Asimov inventa una historia detectivesca como excusa para dar veintena de datos sobre algo. Este vez es sobre Júpiter y sus lunas.Si Júpiter fuera hueco, Bigman, podrías meter mil trescientos planetas del mismo tamaño que la tierra y no podrás llenarlo del todo.Esta vez es el inteligente y audaz de Lucky Starr que es encargado de descubrir un espionaje de los Sirianos, los ex habitantes de la tierra que conquistaron los planetas y asteroides más allá del sistema solar.S [...]


    11. The gas giantDavid Starr, half a secret agent and half the futuristic translation of an “Old West” Marshall, is the swashbuckling hero watching over our Solar System peace! Stretching a bit (but not too much to break it!) the Science to fit the Fiction of a solar system peopled by human colons and extraterrestrial intelligent life forms, Asimov cooks up a fun, fresh and adventurous space opera saga, peppering it with quite a few Western genre tropes and leaving the tone evolve to a Cold War [...]


    12. This was another quick read (don't tell anyone but it was so quick i was able to read it while I was supposed to be doing other things this morning) but I will admit that this was not as good as the previous books in the series - yes it shows it age (it was written in the 50s after all) so you have to take in to account the era it was written in after all. For example you have the social -political landscape to consider - women generally in literature were little more than plot devices and two d [...]


    13. Even at the time I read them in my early 20s, I was not greatly inspired by these, but then again, Issac Asimov wrote them in the 1950s as juvenile science fiction novels under the pseudonym Paul French. So, I kept them mainly as a collector, but possible now something to read with my son. As Asimov admits in the 1970s authors note, the knowledge about the planets and moons has changed greatly, and obviously much much now in 2016. So, there is that problem about reading sci-fi when you already k [...]


    14. Once again IN THE FUTURE THERE ARE NO WOMEN! I do get disappointed when I read science fiction and ALL the characters are men. Not only are there no women working in space but there are no women mentioned at all. I would have thought better of Asimov. I suppose this was a "boy's adventure" but it still boggles my mind that in that situation they didn't feel the need to include women. The characters are all a bit stereotypical. The plot involves a sabotage attempt and someone secretly a robot. Th [...]


    15. Tras mi reciente mudanza he sacado del trastero todos mis libros infantiles y juveniles (Hollister, tres investigadores, Elige tu propia aventura), y descubrí que de las novelas de Lucky Starr me faltaban dos, que procedí a encargar de urgencia y leer ávidamente. En las lunas de Júpiter Lucky Starr debe contribuir al desarrollo de la tecnología terrestre para evitar una guerra con humanos de otros sistema estelar. Se nos habla de la gravedad y la composición atmosférica de Júpiter, de su [...]


    16. My least favorite of the series. There are several elements--including the one that the entire solution hinges on!!--that are blatantly inconsistent with the worldbuilding in earlier books. And Bigman, always the reckless sidekick, becomes in this book so cringeworthily boneheaded that some of his scenes are hard to read. I would say the series had jumped the shark here, but Rings of Saturn is arguably the best one, so who knows what went wrong with Moons.That said, of course there are fun parts [...]


    17. Es divertido, Asimov usa su narrativa para una vez más explicar en base a los datos obtenidos de manera científica para la época el sistema de estelar de Júpiter, también se nota el cambio de la trama a algo más del estilo del espionaje a diferencia de los primeros libros que era más estilo luchador contra el crimen, sin embargo sigue siendo entretenida. Considero que este sería el segundo libro dentro de la mini saga sobre los Sirianos.


    18. #5 in the Lucky Starr series.Lucky Starr, Space Ranger, and his sidekick Bigman Jones, go to Jupiter IX where a new type spaceship is being prepared for a flight to Io. Lucky becomes convinced that sabotage attempts are the result of Sirian espionage, accomplished through a sophisticated robot and a human agent.


    19. Great book. Unlike most of Asimov's other books, this one is mostly for children, but his writing is very entertaining in this genre too. Some things were a little illogical and some parts with astronomical descriptions seemed too educational while I prefer my books more psychological, but still it was a very nice adventure - I liked the mystery, I liked the characters, I liked the whole story.


    20. Una nova entrega de la sèrie, la penúltima. Interessant però amb un final molt previsible des de la 1/2 del llibre i amb una explicació/justificació del mateix massa forçada :(



    21. Isaac Asimov, one of the best science fiction writers the combination of the human mind and the three laws of robotics, makes this book interesting for the reader.



    22. I think I read all of the Lucky Starr series as a kid. Thinking they were written by "Paul French", I had no idea that I was really reading Isaac Asimov




    23. Light on investigation and short on barbs at Bigman. Descriptions of the skies from Jupiter's moons are great though!
