Farmer In The Sky is a 1953 science fiction novel by Robert A. Heinlein about a teenage boy who emigrates with his family to Jupiter's moon Ganymede, which is in the process of being terraformed.

A condensed version of the novel was published in serial form in 1950 in Boys' Life magazine (August, September, October, November 1950), under the title 'Satellite Scout'.

Good story, though a bit aged since it was written from 60 years ago, with interesting characters and a good imagination. Language is also a bit dated, but nothing serious, mostly colloquialisms. Story line is continuously interesting and narration was really good! Differentiation in voice tone and fluctuation was great, giving each persona a distinct characteristic. Descriptions in the story are colorful and metaphorical. Very good book and narration all around!

I love Robert heinlin. This early Book reveals his basic understanding of science fiction writing. His later writing is so much more sophisticated and entertaining. This was written for juvenile readers. I like the later which is for adults.
