This tale could have easily been titled "The Demolished Man," of course, Bester had that tiled reserved for another of his classics. The main character, Gully Folye, is a classic conflicted hero and I hope this tale is studied in a classroom or two. The tale is packed with fast paced adventure but it is much more literature than simple pulp fiction.
About a guy marooned, left for dead in a busted down space ship, trying to survive and does. Now his main goal is revenge.
Good book. After starting this book I had to put it down; it was too hard for me to read, this guy (Gully Foyle, main character) is despicable and harsh. But I later came back to it and I'm glad I did; it's quite a story. I liked it, but I don't think I'll read it again. Excellent writing. After I read this I sought out other works from this author.
