I’ll be honest I didn’t finish it. I get that it’s a sci-fi classic, but it’s interminably slow starting, the characters are pretty one-dimensional, and nothing actually grabbed me to keep me reading. I can’t imagine how ahead of it’s time it must have been, being written the year I was born. All I can judge it on in retrospect is how well it’s written, and that is not very. If you don’t mind reading a book that’s all about ideas, even when they are ideas that have been perpetuated over and over again until cliche in the intervening time, then sure, you might enjoy this book. Personally I found it pretty hollow, pretty empty, and written in a manner only just scraping competent.
