Well, interesting little book. I somehow missed the "wonder" I think we were supposed to get...I also sort of lost interest as I got into it. The story is of a man who apparently hasn't aged since the Civil War and catches the interest of a government intelligence agent. Taking place in 1960s the point of view is interesting.

The farm house/Way Station of the stars (not referring to Hollywood stars here) is the staging point of the story. Told in a sort of flashback manner we get the life story (again "sort-of" ) of Enoch Wallace. This one is another good early science fiction read and while I "faded out" a bit on it it's still one I'd say try for yourself. I sometimes think I'm a bit jaded as the books waiting to be read keep yelling at me a book needs to be really good to hold my interest sometimes LOL. So enjoy. A 3 is a good rating and you might rate it even higher.
