Stars My Destination

I have a certain soft place somewhere in my heart for classic sci-fi. You know the kind I mean, the kind where people fly around in rocket ships, the people with the real power have highly advanced minds capable of all sorts of feats of telepathy, and sex is always just around the corner. In "The Stars My Destination," Bester provides all that and more.

Where do I stand on it? Well, it's a fun book, definitely one that will hook you, if only enough to keep you turning the page to find out just how bad (or campy) things can get. I have to admit, I enjoyed it! Bester spins a fun yarn, something somewhere between Heinlein and Haldeman for content, but less serious than either. His stories start solid and end solid-- definitely something impressive to be sought in a writer. Four and a half stars out of five.
