Question:
For those of you who read a fair bit:
Many years ago, I read a science fiction novel. (I'm talking 20+ years). It was about a guy who was born on the moon (the first ever in fact) and who makes his first journey to earth. He ends up living in an under-sea colony, since being in water is the only relief he can find from the earths high gravity. I remember really enjoying it, and wanted to find it for my daughter, but for the life of me can't remember what it was called or the author.

Ring any bells for anyone?

RE: Question:
Sounds like it might be a Robert Heinlein book. He always involved the effects of gravity with space or interpanetary travel.

RE: Question:
Sorry, Stark ... although I've read a lot of SF, this plot line doesn't ring a bell.

RE: Question:
Could it be something written by Ray Bradbury?

RE: Question:
Wasn't on there, but what a great list. Thanks. I think there's a couple on there I'll be getting that I'd forgotten all about.
