Format: Hardcover
Excellent read. I don't want to give away any of the plot and in so doing diminish the reader's enjoyment of this thought provoking novel. (I must confess, however, I did read the dj blurbs, reviews, etc. before hand and it did take away some of the novel's surprise, but if I hadn't read those things, I probably wouldn't have ever read the novel, i.e., sort of a catch twenty-two.) Solomon's Knife is quote a "science fiction" novel, but since it takes place in the present or near present, it doesn't seem to be SF at all, i.e., it's easy to read and understand, and it has understandable character names, locations, etc., i.e., it is for all appearances a main-stream novel (for readers who may be put-off/frightened by SF). The novel is about how the development of a new technology can remove old dependencies, create new possibilities, and lead to the establishment of new basic human rights and freedoms. But social change doesn't come easy, i.e., it shakes us up, makes us want to kick the butts of those we believe to be transgressors, and seems to take forever to be accepted and permissible. The only crime here is that no one before me reviewed this book. How can this be?

I don't think anything could have improved it. A well-thought-out story, good characters, believable science. I couldn't put it down until I was done!

This book exercises your mind, emotions and morals. I could not put it down and my mind was challenged throughout. Thought provoking, insightful and satisfying, makes you wonder, "what if?" Loved it!

Solomon's Knife is one of the greatest SF novels ever and it deals with one of the most important and complicated issues of libertarian theory -- children's rights. I recommend everyone to read it, no exceptions.
