    " A sci-fi book at it's finest,it's a must-read.I love how Newton is just struggling with his addiction but not trying to get rid of it,it's a kind of stubborn action to do actually.Back to the comment,the book actually told us to care for our planet.If we don't,it'll end up like Anthea.So,we gotta be caring about our Earth!

    " I recently saw the movie with David Bowie. I'm so glad I read the book first. I found it quite interesting. "

    " Slow exposition, but nice climax and resolution. Similar plot elements to several other science fiction stories, but interesting twists as well. A unique and pleasant read. "

    " Tevis seems to be a bit indulgent, from what I've seen of him, and rather on the solipsistic side. It's like he's the only guy who knows completely how he feels (maybe kind of like one of his lush characters)...at any rate, there didn't really seem to me to be too much point to this one by story's end. Also, only positing a few hundred surviving Martians didn't make Newton's act of abrogation seem all that tragic either. Okay, maybe this was the point (and the book was intended to be a reaction to the earlier sorts of tales involving this notion); but it still didn't seem terribly interesting to me. "
