really liked it
Recommended for: teenagers
Read in May, 1977 , read count: once

I read this in the school library when I was 17. I had never read much science fiction and I found this a fascinating insight into the nature of religious fervor, bigotry and sorrow.
Not the least because the ability for which the children are hounded seems to us to be an amazing sense much sort after if it exists at all.
Its an object lesson ignorance.
