I read this book mainly because my son wanted to read it. I'd heard it was an amazing sci-fi book. I don't think I'd call it amazing. Imaginative, perhaps. It had far more religiosity than I expected. I can see why the author stated that the publishers of its time didn't know what to do with the book. While some consider it a children's book, its underlying theme is actually quite deep. I'm glad I read it so I could see what it was about. I doubt I'll read the others in the series though.
