4.0 out of 5 stars If you ever find it, get it April 21 2001
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is an excellent book. The book based on it, The Worthing Saga, doesn't even compare. This book is extremely hard to come across, so if you ever DO find it, my suggestion is to grab it quickly before anyone else does.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE THIS ONE - HAUNTING Aug. 1 2004
By D. Blankenship - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As pointed out by another reviewer, this is a difficult book to find. I have had a copy for several years now and have reread it several times. I promise you, if you can find a copy, and you read it, you will not be sorry. Wonderful story line which is absolutely haunting. This is one of those books that will stick with you for a long, long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Awkward but very rewarding Oct. 28 2006
By Stephen Hitchings - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The author seems to have had a lot of trouble deciding what type of book he wanted to write. Hot Sleep begins as a fairly typical future-urban coming-of-age tale of a telepath. It soon degenerates into a B-grade thriller, then jets off into space and ultimately becomes a future history. Despite this, it ultimately comes together to form a very impressive first novel, with the truly epic scope that only science fiction has ever been able to do well, and a beautifully haunting ending. While it's a pity about some of the early parts, the book has a wonderful unity of vision, and it reminded me, as so few books I have read recently, why I love reading sf.
4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, stays with you Jan. 1 2014

I read this book about 25 years ago when my elder brother bought it at a second-hand book store.

The epic story stays with you.

5.0 out of 5 stars An oldie but a goody Dec 29 2012

Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of Card's best books. Most of the material here is used in the Worthing Saga but if you love the story and are interested in more backstory buy this book!
