For some reason this book has been recommended to me by people for the last 30 years, I have not untill now thought of buying it.
The book is all my friends said it would be and conveys a picture of the human and its journey with the planet over many thousands of years.
Its instintive, emotional, connective, and locating for anyone who has pondered the great questions that life offers us all.
A classic to all free thinking people.
It may haunt you in those quiet moments one has when all is still and time seems to stretch and allow a bit of normality to enter.

One of Lessing's most accomplished books, along with THE MAKINGS OF REPRESENTATIVE FROM PLANET 8, that elevated science fiction literature to thought provoking, intellectual levels. Two of the most essential readings of the 20th century.
