Say what you like about this thing - assuming you ever come across it. I caught it by accident and my copy looked like something left in a plastic bag behind a condemned laundrette. Lucky me, as it turns out. I expected a few hours effortlessly killed but instead I got a marvellously paced piece of work with a mule's kick I did not see coming at all. Seriously, this is one of those hidden gems that you really wish would appear just a little bit more often.

I read this book in the 70s and am now reading it via interlibrary loan. (I live in Alaska and the book came from North Dakota!) Just starting re-reading it. It will be interesting to see how I feel about it 40 years later. Will report back when I finish.

This is one of the most disturbing books I've ever read, and I've never forgotten it. Cannot recommend it too highly to anyone in university in a competitive major. Belongs on the shelf next to "Five Point Someone."

This is one of those books you forever remember long after you forget who wrote it. I liked it at the time but as yet have had a chance to revisit.
