It is really amazing to remember that this book was written 30 years ago. It is just as relevant today as it was then.
The story is gripping - without a doubt. The characters will embed themselves in your mind. Make sure that you have enough time to get into this book. I had a difficult time setting it down. As other reviewers have pointed out, this is a unique storyline with amazing characters. Pick up this renewed oldie for a simply excellent reading experience.
