I read this. Yes. When I was young. At the time it appeared to be fascism for hippies. Proto-Manson, then. I'm struggling to remember anything. He comes from mars and he starts a new religion and he eats people. No - he gets eaten by people. I think that's it. A bit like Jesus. If Jesus was a fascist. You know what - I can't remember a thing. It's late.

Milo I love hippies!

Paul Bryant I do, don't I. Gosh. Darn it.

Jeremy Paul, I so enjoy reading your reviews that I hope you'll re-read this and see how you feel now! I'm currently listening to the audiobook and it's great. Perhaps better than 3 stars?

Paul Bryant Probably is! I have a bunch of sf novels to get to which I should have read by now though...

Virginia I can see you really grokked it.

Paul Bryant that became part of my regular vocabulary, and later I was surprised when people didn't grok back
