HASH(0x9b67de70) out of 5 stars A Cracking Good Read ... July 16 2005
By K. Ward - Published on
Format: Hardcover
... for young adults starting to explore the world of SF. I loved this book as a young teenager.

A million or so years ago, a malevolent alien race placed a psychic blindfold on proto-humans. What would happen if a million years later, the blindfolds unexpectedly lifted and everyone in the world, including criminals and meglomaniacs, suddenly gained enormous psychic powers? Why were the blindfolds placed on humanity in the first place? How will the aliens respond to humans using their newfound powers to solve the mystery? What if other, far more powerful alien races object to humans pillaging the galaxy with their new powers, and question our right to exist?

These are but some of the questions and issues explored in this book. Part SF and part adventure, mystery and fantasy, this is an exciting and gripping read for the younger SF fan.

While 'Blindfold' can be criticised as mere "mind candy" by more mature readers of hard SF, I doubt the author ever intended it for other than the lighter end of the genre. While not specifically written for children and young adults, 'Blindfold' (along with most of the other works by Philip E. High), is a terrific bridge for younger readers between "space adventures for kid's" and more mature works such as "Blade Runner".

To hard SF fans, please try not be too critical of Mr High's work, and bear in mind his books were not written for you but for those who may someday follow in your footsteps.

HASH(0x9b67dec4) out of 5 stars good book April 5 2013

I have collected any Philip E High books that I can find over the years. They all are great stories with lots of interesting ideas as to the future of mankind. The baddies are always bad and the good guys start out as ordinary people who win out in the end. He is very pro future even when things have gone wrong with now.
