While the Hee-chee story line is a great one, this book seems to have been written as a means to an end; it is an underwhelming and anti-climactic bridge between the first and third novels in this series.
I would have preferred a more satisfying ending.
Don't want to give it away, but the "prayer fans" revelation was interesting.
It inspired me to avoid further sequels, unfortunately.
Near the top, for sure. It was very original, and among the best sci-fi I've experienced. SO much literary value here.
The book is written in very elegant prose which is at the same time easily digestible and entertaining. The pacing is superb.
Winston and I both struggled with similar difficulties throughout childhood. That he overcame his is great inspiration to me.
Certainly. The novel is a good one, but perhaps a little pedantic in its unsubtle social commentary. Just not Steinbeck's best novel, really.
Sure. He did fine.
Probably. I imagine that, if well cast, this could make a charming motion picture.
I enjoyed the idea of a book which took cues from the series Lost, at least in terms of setting up suspense and intriguing the audience.
It was well executed. No complaints.
I was immensely disappointed by this book. Weightless and boring.
