The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester
The Stars My Destination by Alfred Bester
Bester has a gift for dynamic storytelling as well as delivering powerful and thought-provoking messages. Set against the backdrop of a burgeoning solar civil war, the first half of this book kept me hooked with its relentless action and well-rounded characters. I started to get disappointed when the second half started off with a vengeance in action theme but the ending brought intelligent thought back into the story with some very satisfying plotline wrapups. If you want hard science fiction that will inspire you after the ending, this is it.
