I finished this a few days ago and forgot to mark it.

 

I'm not going to say too much, but I will say this: Though I had quite a few mixed feelings while reading it, for the most part, I enjoyed the heck out of it. There's something compelling that makes reading it entertaining as hell. 

 

It's not perfect, no, and it has some problems to it. But then I consider that this was published in 1968, and is not only far more progressive than many of it's contemporaries, but is even more progressive than a lot of modern sci fi, as well. If you want to read classic sci fi (and it is sci fi--there may not be a lot of sci fi trappings at this point, but it feels like science fiction) and aren't in the mood for yet more pseudo-progressive white guy tales, this is a perfect choice.
