Still relevant almost 50 years after it was written. Absorbingly despressing, however, it will make you think.

Very colorful characterization and the plotting was just as fine. The circumstances described probably aren't very applicable anymore but it is an interesting story, nonetheless. I think after reading all of the reviews here and on other sites I was expecting a more survivalist story so I was not prepared for the ending or the pervasive tone of sadness throughout the book.
