Then, an off hand remark about their plentiful supply of water causes one of the men, Warren Moore to get an idea for how they just might be able to propel their rooms of floating space junk to Vesta and safety. The story ends before they reach the moon, so the reader is left to wonder whether or not the three men reach the safety of Vesta or perish in the cold, harshness of space.
Written while still in his teens, Marooned Off Vesta is Isaac Asimov's first published story, and his inexperience shows throughout the story. Although interesting, the narrative is clunky and poorly written. Same for the dialogue. The characterizations are cardboard at best and it's difficult to tell one from the other as each man blends into the next.
I found myself not caring if the three men would make it out of their predicament or not for it seems they would be no more interesting off the spaceship or rather what's left of it than they are on it. I was surprised that Warren found the gumption to heroically attempt a space walk in order to save them because I could see them just as easily sitting around drinking the Martian Jabra juice, which, unlike air, they are in hefty supply of, while awaiting their inevitable death by asphyxiation.
Although this story screams hackneyed amateur, there is a spark of talent simmering beneath the surface and I look forward to discovering how Asimov matures as a writer. Jun 24, Stanley Daugherty rated it it was ok. Asimov's first published story.
