    Rather interesting cold war sci fi novella short novel The topic is a literal identity crisis when a scientist and a condemned prisoner blend minds in a science experiment gone wrong Lots of soul searching and flash backs ensue with a surprise twist at the end of the book s 3 parts which eventually takes the story on a sympathetic trip to the Soviet Union.Would make a good episode of the Twilight Zone and the writing is brusque and trim However, Blum is not well versed in the idiom of SF I Rather interesting cold war sci fi novella short novel The topic is a literal identity crisis when a scientist and a condemned prisoner blend minds in a science experiment gone wrong Lots of soul searching and flash backs ensue with a surprise twist at the end of the book s 3 parts which eventually takes the story on a sympathetic trip to the Soviet Union.Would make a good episode of the Twilight Zone and the writing is brusque and trim However, Blum is not well versed in the idiom of SF Imo, the result is a book that is too grounded in the reality of the cold war in the 1970s and too focused on characterization to feel like real Science Fiction, and the mind swap aspect is sure to alienate mainstream readers.Noam Chomsky apparently enjoyed it though probably because a character defects to the Soviets, screw America The hardcore SF enthusiasts should give it a skim if they see it in a second hand bookshop Perhaps this is an unfairly neglected piece of Soft SF, but it is no classic

    A bit dated and it feltlike an episode of Night Gallery Rod Serling s series after Twilight Zone than a novel The characters were never really developed enough to care too much But, I read it to the end because I wanted to know how it turned out.
