NenadN Sep 6, Like many of the reviews I've seen on here, I like the first part of the book and then it loses all appeal in the second half. Once he "understands people" he pretty much becomes a regular person with tricks. He loses all of his innocence and purity and lowers himself to try to win people. The ideas regarding sex and sexuality become more and more dated the more important they become to Smith's plans. I'm glad I read it but I'm really unclear as to why this is the greatest science fiction book. Had a lot of interesting plot ideas, but there were more than a few places the dialogue got unnecessarily preachy has anyone else noticed that when authors talk about how much they despise intellectual masturbation, they're almost always engaging in it?
emf If you're in your late teens, reading both of these books back to back ( stranger in a strange land, zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance) is a good .
