The ethical and philosophical considerations raised by Simak. This is a gentle book that manages to encompass human frailty, war and a multi-pointed view of what it means to say "alien" in a very, to me, successful fashion.
It would be easy to say Enoch was my favorite, but truthfully I found all the characters engaging and interesting. Some of the aliens were more human than some of the earthlings!
No...I find breaks to think about the story very pleasant.
I like this book. I think it stands the test of time better than many science fiction books of that period because of the strong characters.
The narration worked very well. Enoch's voice was well realized, I think. I recommend the story and the production.
