5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal., 10 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Shockwave Rider (Mass Market Paperback)
I think I was 10 years old when I first read this book. Every summer after that, I would search for it in the library again. Then I would lock myself away from distractions so as to be totally immersed in the science that was not to be fiction for long. With sweaty palms, I would engross myself in the story of a child prodigy whose childhood was stolen from him by a society that only wanted to abuse him - and how he took it all back in spades. Imagine how ecstatic I am that it is still in print, and so many others have discovered and enjoyed it! As someone else mentioned, stick with it, even though the staging method takes some getting used to. Also, keep an unabridged dictionary nearby unless you have a PhD in English. Brunner really pulls out some obscure words, but that's one of the hallmarks of an excellent writer.
