There's Lone, the simpleton who can hear other people's thoughts. There's Janie, who moves things without touching them, and then there are the teleporting twins. There's Baby, who invented an antigravity engine while still in the cradle. Separately,the are freaks. Together, they compose a single organism that may represent the next step in evolution, and the final chapter in the history of the human race.

Theodore Sturgeon is best remembered for his wonderful short fiction. He wrote few novels but this is by far the best of them. It is based upon his short story "Baby Is Three," a revised version of which comprises the middle section of the book.

My favorite part of the novel is the amazing first section (the first third of the novel). Well written, in a prose style displaying Sturgeon's great enthusiasm for William Faulkner, and very dark and interesting.

Highly recommended book for Sturgeon fans and science fiction fans.
