Camp Concentration
Camp Concentration
by Thomas M. Disch
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Camp Concentration (1968) - Thomas M. Disch, 28 Oct. 2005
This review is from: Camp Concentration (Paperback)
CAMP CONCENTRATION is a lean, thought provoking novel from Thomas M. Disch. Written in journal form, the novel tracks the journey of a human guinea pig who's subjected to harsh experiments in order to create a smarter being. Of course the experiemnts have side effects, and they exist on many levels. Camp Concentration can be seen is an allegory to mankind, and all the wrong we've done to each other in the name of progress. A haunting work that has an unexpected, but meaningful ending.
****1/2 out of *****

5.0 out of 5 stars Downward to the Earth (1970) - Robert Silverberg, 28 Oct. 2005
DOWNWARD TO THE EARTH is Robert Silverberg's mythical masterpeice of mankind's awakening. Citing Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness, Silverberg breaks the conventions of science fiction and creates an intelligent, somber tale of one man's jounrey into his own heart of darkness. Beautifully written and completely engrossing, Downward to the Earth is a novel of endless wonder and amazement.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Man in the High Castle (1962) - Philip K. Dick, 28 Oct. 2005
THE MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE is Philip K. Dick's masterpiece, and one of the greatest achievments in modern literature. More than just science fiction, this novel explores personal and societal ideas with an epic landscape of detailed characters. Everything in this novel is incredibly realized, and Dick's language is beautiful. The Man in the High Castle bends reality into a believable alternate universe, and in doing so becomes a novel that truly transcends it's genre.
