here's another one that I didn't read in my teens.....and what a waste of all those years I could have been remembering it fondly. Finally read it and loved it! Won't read the follow-ons; this was enough!

A classic sci-fi series. This book led to several following books in the series. You can't do that if the first book in a series didn't grab your interest and make you want more. This book does that. I've read it twice, 30 years apart! Still satisfying after all these years.

The book (not the movie) is one of the best science fiction stories of all time, in my humble opinion.

Most Excellent. Very enveloping, a good read, extremely hard to put down once you begin. I still think the spice was cinnamon.....

A classic sci-fy tale. It will grab your attention and keep you going throughout the entire book. A David and Goliath type tale for the fate of a planet and the universe.
