The Library Journal called The Star Sailors "exceptional" in its review: "This exceptional first novel should be considered by libraries that buy only a few sf titles each year, as well as by more extensive sf collections. Bennett's book, like Ursula K. Le Guin's best work, excels on every level. Characterization is remarkable and essential to the development of a complex and intriguing plot that makes the vanquishing of galactic and intergalactic evil a personal challenge for four representatives of the Galactic Federation. A courageous captain defies the bounds set on space exploration and takes his three-person crew to a devastated planet, where one man discovers the fate of his father, another faces a crisis of faith, and another must pit his strength against those who once brutally harmed his wife. Powerful, absorbing reading; highly recommended." -- Rosemary Herbert, Harvard College Library in the Library Journal, June 15, 1980.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
