Journal Entry 1 by Colestar on Wednesday, April 28, 2004
This should be compulsory reading for any teenager, let alone adult.
It is the book that got me started on my science fiction craze. It captures the humanity of 'The Catcher in the Rye' and 'Lord of the Flies', and then mixes in elements of Faustian mythology and science fiction elegance the like of Arthur C. Clarke and Kurt Vonnegut.
I am in debt to this book because, although I read it at a young age, it paved the way for all future literature for me.
Ask your teachers about it. Ask them what they think. You'd be surprised how classic this novel is, even though you may not have heard of it before.
Be the 'choice' student in your school by giving it a read through, and then passing it on to your friends.
Maybe there's a lesson here your parents, or teachers, haven't taught.
