samskivert: The Stars My Destination – Alfred Bester (3)

23 June 2002

Classic sci-fi, if a bit dated by the reverence for the “power of the human mind.” The characters were colorful indeed and even if I didn’t exactly identify with the protagonist, Gully Foyle, I found myself rooting for him and appreciating his cleverness and blossoming understanding.
