I won't say what's already been said here. Others have probably already posted a synopsis of the plot and story-line, the characters, the settings, etc. I'll just say it's a good romp in a far-flung future in which Earth has been conquered by an evil race of aliens and the hero of the book is on a quest to overthrow the evil overlords, although that isn't what he initially sets out to do. It's amazing what adventures the hero winds up in just because he left his village to find answers to questions.
It's a long book which, for me, is a plus because I never want a good book to end. And, to me, this is a good book. There's love, there's adventure, there's real science-fiction like from the Golden Age of Sci-Fi. It's just a fun book, and it's one of my favorites. All I can say is, just read it and give it a chance. It takes a little bit to build up speed. But, once it does, I think you'll see that this not-so-little gem has been unfairly overlooked/over-analyzed/over-thought. Just relax and enjoy reading it for the fun of it! Also, the movie that is based on this book is terrible! Please, by Xenu, do not watch the movie before reading the book. Actually, don't watch the movie even after reading the book!
I also liked that the chapters are short - it makes it easy to pick it up and put it down and read it in little bursts.
