In this pulse-quickening novel, Alfred Bester imagines a future in which people "jaunte" a thousand miles with a single thought, where the rich barricade themselves in labyrinths and protect themselves with radioactive hit men--and where an inarticulate outcast is the most valuable and dangerous man alive.

User Review  - Ben A - Goodreads

Wonderful premise, somewhat pulpy feel to the action and characters and the third act feels like it spins somewhat out of control. Still an entertaining read if you can sidestep some of the problematic elements. Read full review

Review: The Stars My Destination

User Review  - Cristian Planas - Goodreads
