This is a book that I read when I was a kid and it stuck with me 30 years later. I could not remember the name until a real sci-fi fan pointed it out to me when i was describing the plot line and events of the book. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to read a classic sci-fi novel.

This is a little-known book by Ira Levin which I originally read in the 1970's. It seems a little choppy now - perhaps not as sophisticated as some of the more recent books, but it is still a good futuristic novel - creative and thought-provoking.
