The characters were real. The good guys had moral dilemmas but the bad guys were really bad.
I tired but I listen while I drive so I had to break up the listening time.
It took me back to when I first read the collection when I was barely in my teens. Kornbluth was one of the reasons I fell in love with Science Fiction.
No favorites, really. The Marching Morons will always be my favorite of the collection because I see some of the same things happening in our societry now.
This is classic science fiction. Kornbluth died way before his time and I can only imagine the quality of work he could have accomplished.
Funny, scary and sad.
My favorite parts were the back stories of the heroes and how their beginnings formed the perspective they used in the now.
So many scenes stand out. The confrontation of the heroes and the Seventeens, the celebrity exes point standings, the final confrontation with Josh, The Regenerator.
I would have, definitely.
Few books create characters that appeal so much that you want to know more about them and to continue watching their exploits. This is definitely one of those kinds of books.
