This book has popped up in numerous places as I've surfed the web-ether over the last few years so I finally got around to reading it. I reserved a copy at the library, all copies in Portland seem to be on constant hold, and picked it up a week and a half ago. I was in the middle of another novel so it sat on my nightstand for a week before I got to it. Now I'm barely 1/5th of the way into it and I'm getting emails from the library telling me it's due in a couple of days. I can't renew it because it's already on reserve by someone else.
So far it's such a good read that I know I'll want to re-read it again in the future, so I scrambled through Powell's website and ran out and bought my own copy yesterday. The library's copy was a huge hardcover that's difficult to hold while reading in bed. The copy I found is a standard sized small paperback and was only $6.95 used.
I'm not able to post a quote from the book here . . . simply put, there are way too many good quotes to chose from.
I'm hoping for some bit of a happy ending. It will be incredibly sad if the honest and brave, hard-working, capitalist loses to the insane anti-logic of the utopian socialists.
P.S. It kept popping up on the web as relevant to current events that I was bowled over to find it was written in 1957!
