I first read this when I was 15 and found it interesting. I have read it several times since then and found it more and more interesting. I decided that Star Wars nicked ideas from it but now I think that's unlikely. It's pretty sexist I feel, but maybe it's not, it's just Slanist. Do try this if you like 1950s sci-fi.

Highly recommended science fiction with an evolution theme. Still as good today and thought provoking as when I read it as a child.

Quite liked this book. A bit naïve, almost quaint at times and definitely dated but readable and enjoyable too. Less than 300 pages so an easy and quick read.

I first read this book when I was 20. It's as good to read now as it was then. The style is not old school but it is a little terse.Bearing in mind that this was actually published as a serial in a magazine it's pretty good.

One of the great books from one of the great authors. A must read for any sci-fi fan at some stage.

A classic! A must read for any SiFi fan. Kindle copy as I couldn't lay my hands on a hard copy. AE vV is one of the greatest mid-century writers of the genre. Read his other works too!!!
