-No puedo olvidar, pero no recuerdo qué-.

Género. Ciencia-Ficción.

Lo que nos cuenta. Warren Peace descubre que se ha alistado en la Legión Espacial, y parte del proceso consiste en eliminar de la memoria de los nuevos reclutas los recuerdos “embarazosos” que normalmente hacen que se alisten. Pero en el caso de Warren el efecto es más intenso y no recuerda nada, por lo que todos suponen (incluido él mismo) que debió ser un verdadero monstruo. Su curiosidad por lo que ignora y su evidente inadaptac...more

One of the laugh-out-loud, funniest science-fiction stories ever. You'll know what I mean when you get to the part where inductees are commanded to inflict self-punishment by "tweeking" themselves; ouch!!!

The plot twist which the entire story is based upon is reminiscent of the one in Robert Heinlein's story "By His Bootstraps."

It's old-style SF - a quick read and quite amusing in places. An entirely new way to go about finding yourself. To say more would be a real spoiler.

An obscure sci fi classic. Great fun and some great concepts. It was impressiveto my teenage self - hopefully it's not an embarrassment now!

Alku crazy komediaa, mutta sitten alkoi vähän monimutkaistumaan aikamatkailuineen ja paradokseineen.
Parani loppua kohti.

Light, easy to read, extremely funny, fast paced and good entertainment, at least for teenagers which is when I read it...
PJ Ebbrell
Starts well and I enjoyed the black humour, but loses it way about 2/3 way through. Disappointing ending.
Pacyfa
Slightly amusing time travel novel, unfortunately it's quite predictable and thus not very exciting.

Monthy Python in Outer Space meets the French Foreign Legion and Doctor Who ...
