4a. There were two persons, Ellen and Harl. One day, they walked around the park. Then, they stopped and talked about their lives. They worked as scientists because this kind of work will be famous in the future. Harl planned to leave the earth and live other planets. After that, he established the project X for living other planets. But, Ellen thought it is very dangerous, so she planned to stay the earth.
4b. This story was the fiction story. This book was serious by finish, so i did not think it was interesting. This book situation was the future in 2129. The pictures had animals live in the planet. It was interesting. In the future, I thought the earth would become such pictures. I became a little scared when I thought whether the day human being could not lice in the earth will come.
5. I thoght the author wanted to write serious story. In end of story, human began to live in the earth again, it was happy end. But, this story was serious to there for me, so it was not good for me.

Read information about the authorSam Youd was born in Huyton, Lancashire in April 1922, during an unseasonable snowstorm.
As a boy, he was devoted to the newly emergent genre of science-fiction: ‘In the early thirties,’ he later wrote, ‘we knew just enough about the solar system for its possibilities to be a magnet to the imagination.’
Over the following decades, his imagination flowed from science-fiction into general novels, cricket novels, medical novels, gothic romances, detective thrillers, light comedies … In all he published fifty-six novels and a myriad of short stories, under his own name as well as eight different pen-names.
He is perhaps best known as John Christopher, author of the seminal work of speculative fiction, The Death of Grass (today available as a Penguin Classic), and a stream of novels in the genre he pioneered, young adult dystopian fiction, beginning with The Tripods Trilogy.
‘I read somewhere,’ Sam once said, ‘that I have been cited as the greatest serial killer in fictional history, having destroyed civilisation in so many different ways – through famine, freezing, earthquakes, feral youth combined with religious fanaticism, and progeria.’
In an interview towards the end of his life, conversation turned to a recent spate of novels set on Mars and a possible setting for a John Christopher story: strand a group of people in a remote Martian enclave and see what happens.
The Mars aspect, he felt, was irrelevant. ‘What happens between the people,’ he said, ‘that’s the thing I’m interested in.’
