Rated 5 out of 5 by from this book changed my life one of the most shockingly unique and incredible books i've ever read. I picked this up on a whim since i was feeling Phillip K Dick lately. I had heard it was a lesser known work, and was very very surprised at just not being able to put it down at all. The story is set in the future where earth is caught between two alien races warring and how we try to get by. It has an amazing set of twists and turns. This book has a moment near the end that helped me to change my life philosophy and for that I will always be grateful to Phillip. absolutely recommend this to any fans of sci-fi and in a strange way...a slice of life story about just trying to get by regardless of failures.
