I was really looking forward to read this science fiction classic by Alfred Bester. Now, I'm extremely tempted to abandon this book. That's not a feeling I often get while reading, luckily. I find it very difficult to see what is so special and "master-piece-y" about it. Sure, it has a few good ideas here and there, but it's way too erratic, it's like the author wanted to write about too much in too little space instead of taking the time to flesh this thing out to something that personally would consider decent. Is it just me that feels like that bout this so-called masterpiece?
