Why did I love this book?
Although it was published in 1956, The Stars My Destination reads in a modern and accessible way, with a fast-paced plot and delirious knack for creativity. Truly cosmic in scope, it offers a sci-fi spin on The Count of Monte Cristo with exquisite results. We have teleportation, space travel, a range of interesting future technology, vibrant characters, psychic powers, unique cultures, top-secret weapons… and that’s just the beginning. The book was so ahead of its time that it is still ahead of its time.
