A classic. Don't miss it.,
This review is from: The Stars My Destination (Paperback)
Alfred Bester tells the tale of a seemingly ordinary man who finds himself caught in the grip of hatred and thrust toward greatness. Driven by an insane lust for a seemingly impossible revenge, Gully Foyle pushes himself to become more than he is, and more than anyone could have dreamed he could become. He is an evil man whose greatness is destined to transcend his evil, eventually raising all of mankind to a greatness it was unable to foresee.
This book is definitely worth reading, though it might be disturbing if you're not prepared for a story in which the protagonist is driven by hatred.
