it was amazing
bookshelves: science-fiction
Read in January, 1975

This was one of the books I discovered when I was in high school, as I methodically made my way around the school library fiction section, A to Z. With this book, I fell in love with science fiction. I also fell in love with the range of emotion it evoked in me. It was a revelation to me that a story could make me feel other than happy, and still be well worth reading -- even if it made me feel sad, or uncomfortable, or disquieted. Thus I grew into a love of literature.

Perhaps I should not read this book again, for it might disappoint. As it is, I must give it the highest mark, for of what it is, and for who I was when I read it.
