The Four Fingers of Death is a lengthy book. It actually is three stories in one. The first which begins and ends the book is about Montese Crandall who in the near future has one the right to write the novelization of the sci-fi classic "The Crawling Hand". (Okay, they think it is a classic in the year 2025). And we find out the importance of why he needs to write this book. The rest of the book is the story he supposedly wrote. It is split into two sections - Book one explains the Mars voyage and which I enjoyed as it was detailed and stimulating. Classic science fiction. Book Two is the story of the return to earth where only a human arm has crashed landed and may be infected and cause the destruction of human kind. This part was humorous horror to say the least, but didn't grab me as much as the first book. With over 700 pages it took me awhile to get through this one.

This book has absolutely no good qualities. The only thing positive that can be said is that it is a cure for insomnia. The jacket notes compare it to "Slaughterhouse-Five". Moody is no Kurt Vonnegut! If you must have a copy, you can find mine in the city dump. Tomorrow is garbage day.
