...Freedom From Freedom Froms is not a safe book. It is one that will leave lingering traces in your mind long after you turn the last page."
Perhaps Stauffer's aim is for humans to never fall into the trap of using technology as hopes and crutches for our own failings. If we are to depend on anything it should be our own convictions, abilities, and common bond as humans. This self-reliance among humans is a strong theme throughout the novel."
Freedom Froms is filled with great libertarian atire, tense action, and complex characters. This includes the strange Kreutz; LeRoy Jones, a black astronaut who must battle race discrimination and his own views to battle Derrick and find his true self; Derrick himself (editorial comment, Derrick is the conscious computer); and even Phil. Whereas Bats in the Belfry focuses almost entirely on Phil and his activities, Stauffer expands his universe and gives the reader a richer experience.
