The most interesting sections are in the middle, where Dennis' young mind is repeatedly being taken over by the thoughts of others, although while reading it, it's very difficult to see exactly where this unusual story is headed, and that can make the reader feel that the plot is progressing rather slowly, or, one might even suspect, not really progressing at all, but merely delaying the ending.Read more ›
The second half of the book is where it almost gets interesting as the kid becomes aware of himself in relation to all of the others that have occupied his mind. But then... well, I'm not sure what happens. He returns to Earth to find someone he's been dreaming about/ inhabiting that may or may not be his future self in order to stop aliens from continuing to pollute the planet with technology in order to make it more habitable for their lifeforms. (And this is a huge cop-out on Zelazny's part as the aliens only appear as orbs rising up from the Indian Ocean.) Apparently they've been trying to steer humanity for eons to this end instead of just coming up with a super pollution bomb. I also don't get why only Dennis can or does stop them. There is no battle.Read more ›
A married couple, who are telepaths, have a baby boy. The baby does not grow up normally, but has trouble interacting with others. As the parents are telepaths, they have some understanding of the fact of the child's problem, but they can not help, so they call in another telepath. As the child grows up, he becomes more strange and becomes connected to others outside his realm of experience altogether and, it seems, has some telepathic connection over great distances with these people. They try to decipher what he can do and how he does it, but it is very slow and does not give any results until they take him to the Moon. There he becomes an 'Everyman' of immense mental abilities. Just a weird story.
