A science fiction mystery set in a world of mind readers told from the eyes of the culprit who decides to commit a perfect crime by first destroying his own mind. My hat goes of Alfred Bester, as so far I tried two of his novels, and both proved to be some of the most fascinating works of fiction I’ve ever experienced. He is like a super sayan version of Philip K. Dick.
|Crisp, evocative prose||Not quite as mind-blowing as Stars My Destination|
|Fascinating futuristic setting seamlessly blends science fiction and fantasy|
|Riveting characters with a completely mad protagonist|
|Engrossing plot full of twists|
|A clever, well-planned out story|
|Thought-provoking on human mind|
One thought on “[Novel] The Demolished Man (Alfred Bester)”
Tiger! Tiger! is the best of the best of Bester, so I believe nothing could beat it 🙂 Anyway that’s shame Bester wrote such a few books 😦 Maybe 4 or so, if count in book volumes on my bookshelf.
