It was a long time since I read this. I remember it with warm memories and I liked it. Now I have liked it too, but not so much as then.

The story has the historical background at the coldest days of the Cold War, when there was little hope that we may survive an almost sure and complete obliteration. Now that threat has almost died and the new generations are free of the fear of an apocalyptic nuclear war.

Then, although the idea of global peace and friendship is still valid, now its need has changed a little, as we are not in the brim of annihilation. Therefore the special circumstances in which the novel appears are no longer there and it minimizes a little the worth of it. Also, there is somehow a candid point of view on the matter. But those were the happy sixties anyway.

As a resume, this is a nice novel, that brings hope for all Earth, although the circumstances are history.
