Format: Paperback
The title is deceptive as the stoy's main character is not the one called Titan's Daughter. Instead the main character is her husband/fiancee. This work by "Futurian Society" author James Blish suffers not for the passing years in terms of hard science; the technology is kept generalized and deliberatly vauge. So it reads as well today as when it was published. Its most delightful and disappointing fact is that the villian is more three dimensional then the two other main characters. And that is saying something in a novel meant to show the evils of prejudice by pitting normal(evil) humans against genetically manipulated(good) eight foot giants. A quick read, but has some staid plot mechanisms; old but beloved scientist-grandfather type who is murdered by villian in order to set up the climax.

Format: Paperback
Noted science fiction writer James Blish writes a passible furture tale were genetic engineering has produced a group of nine foot giants that are the objects of ridicule for most of the population. The story suffers from several flaws, It's hard to sympathize with the main characters, they are very two dimensional. The vilain is more interesting but not by much. The story also uses some staid plot mechanims such as "hero is framed for murder he did not commit". And the title character is not really developed. The reader can easily see Blish's Utopian leanings, but they just don't register.
