really liked it
bookshelves: liberty, sci-fi, 1960s

Minor spoilers ahead: This is a prime example of what I mean when I say that Libertarianism will probably occur as a result of some technological breakthrough rather than as a result of activism or political action. I was pretty impressed with the overall pacing, story, hard scifi tech elements, and short philosophical diatribes. The female character is also pretty damn good for a scifi book. Will read more of Anderson as a result of this book.
