There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Hardly a page goes by that there isn't one.
Most times, because I'm so familiar with the work, I can figure out what the word should have been, but occasionally, I had to go get my paper version, hunt up the same passage, and compare.
Truly abysmal quality control on this.
If it's being bought to revisit an old friend, you can probably get by with it, but as a first read, definitely avoid this.
Special Note: I'm putting this identical comment on all six volumes of the series.

I read Children of the Lens first and now I can see how all the elements line up as the series progresses.
Seriously skip ahead to 'Galactic Patrol' (3rd in the 'series')
That is an amazing story - that still works and is a good read (though slightly casablanca ' in places
- it was written in the 1950s remember)
once you have read from there - come back to this as back story
Returning to it in my 60s I found it confusing, much Deux et Machina going on and, more importantly a nasty elitist right wing ideology appears to underpin the whole book.
Good vs Evil seems to revolve around materialism/spiritualism with both sides placing great prestige on size and age.
The female characters were too good to be true, and appeared to represent the authors own (limited) range of fetish objects. whilst the characterisation of the males homoerotic relationships lacks only the revelations of manly love (as experienced via the lens) in order to make this load of tosh vaguely interesting.
