What an excellent read! A very good story teller, Cole presents a very beleivable world of the future form a 1950's perspective with a "Twilight Zone" type of ending. You should be able to get through this book in 2 or 3 settings. Highly recommended. Check out his other works as well.
This is the report of a British Commission that recommends a policy of forced sterilization and segregation in order to eliminate mental defectives. It is terrifying that this was accepted scientific belief.
Anonymous? I can hardly say that the Bible was written by anonymous, but I digress...
For those nay-sayers who think the Bible is myth and not worth reading, I would disagree. At the very least, it is useful for life. Just read the Proverbs and the Psalms and the teachings of Jesus (Do unto others and you would have them do unto you...how could that be rubbish?). The amazing thing is that its not just a guide for how to live a good life, its the story of a God who loves people so much that he would die for them even after they turned his back on them.
Easily the greatest story ever told.
(I just wish the translation was different...that's why it gets 4 stars and not 5)
A wasted day is not really an adventure story but more of a courtroom drama. The central character unwillingly goes to court to speak on behalf of a convicted criminal. The central character gets more than he bargained for from the experience. A nice little story which is clear and well written.
