    Not for me.

    I read a lot of sci-fi, but this is so simplistic as to seem like a child's fairytale. The "novel" is only 49 pages long. With the preachy parts about the evils of mankind's waste of the enviroment, there might be enough here for a child's bedtime story.

    Great Visionary Sci-Fi

    Loved this piece of classic sci-fi that was written by a true master Murray Leinstar. The futuristic premise and world he created held my attention throughout. Really enjoyed it and I recommend it to any hardcore sci-fi fan.

    Like this vintage take on the future

    If you like classic sci-fi that is way ahead of its time, this one is for you. Leinster paints an interesting and fighting view of a future world where man has devolved because of pollution and climate change.

    Great find!

    Leinster was a man way ahead of his time. This book gives a believable world of the future that fits with climate change scientists of today. I really liked the evolution to man and how he changed -- as well as the insects and other creepy crawlers.

    A great read! Good vintage stuff is never outdated.
