I bought this at a place called “The Book Barn“, which was an actual barn in the small farming town of Chertsey. It is quite a place with mountains of books.
I made a beeline for the science fiction section which was in a small room, and there I found a good selection of cheap paperbacks. I bought this book and another, both for one dollar each. I could have bought a lot more, but I already have plenty of other books in my bookshelf that need to be read.
This is very much a pulpy science fiction story, but is engaging and has a thrilling ending. The story is basically about slavery where human children are passed off as androids and sold to Earth, which is the most wealthiest and privileged planet in the galaxy. There is a lot more to it of course, but I won’t go into details.
This is not essential science fiction reading, but I found it to be a very good read, and for $1 it was an absolute bargain. I shall return to the Book Barn one day.
