Format: Mass Market Paperback
I don't want to give anything of the plot away,
so I'm not going to say much more than "Read it!"
The story is intriguing, keeps you guessing the whole way
through, and leaves you inspired.
If you like Robert Heinlein and Robert Sheckley,
then you should enjoy Eric Frank Russell.
Unfortunately, the story is let down by some holes in the
plot, some things just don't add up. But if you can look past
that, it's an enjoyable read.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
While Eric Frank Russell will probably be best remembered for the paranoid's delight that is "Sinister Barrier" -- and deservedly so! -- this lesser-known novel is almost the counterpoint to that dark science-fiction classic. As previous reviewers have noted, it's unwise to go into the plot too much for fear of massive spoilers. Let's just say that while the various human factions are in conflict, something more is going on behind the scenes, something humanity is oblivious to but utterly dependent on without knowing it. To say more would ruin things for the first-time reader, and that would be a shame, because more than simply being a remarkable plot twist, it's a philosophical statement about our human -- and humane! -- potential. This is what makes the best of classic science-fiction so good -- while the science & the prose style may sometimes be less than perfect, certainly not "literary" to any great degree, it's also passionate & heartfelt in a way you seldom see today. Highly recommended!
