I'm only reviewing the title story, as I read this when I was maybe 12 or 14 or something, so I can't remember any of the others. It's one of the earliest sci fi short stories I can remember reading, certainly where I was kind of aware what you could do with the form and what it's about. I've got a soft spot for it. I've never understood why they wanted to make a film of it.

To get bored halfway through a short-story of this length takes some doing. This however manages it perfectly. The other stories are equally dull and poorly written.

Great ideas in this (and indeed, most of the other stories in this book), but written in a style that does nothing to engage the reader. Better than the film...
