Summary :

Novelisation of the classic science fiction film from 1951.

Out of the sky it comes - silent and mysterious and menacing. For more than two days people of the earth watch as it crisscrosses the globe. All over the world there are the same reactions: mystification...and fear. Then it lands. In an open park near the heart of Washington, D. C., it sits for a day and a night. After many hours, a panel in the ship opens. From it come two figures: a man and a robot. For a long moment they stand facing the silent crowd. Then the man speaks: "I am Klaatu and this is Gnut." He raises his right arm, palm outward, in the universal symbol of peace. The gesture is rewarded with a burst of gunfire. Mortally wounded, the alien falls to the ground. Thus begins a great story about invaders from outer space - a story that inspired a popular movie classic.
