You'd think I'd love reading science fiction novels, but I never really got into them. I read more essays and theological texts than anything, but when I found this at a used bookstore recently I couldn't help but purchase it. As though it called to me, I carried around this book and flipped through some pages to get an understanding of what it was then I decided to bring it home. Sometimes a book just calls out to you.
This book, "Jem", by Frederik Pohl, is one I have never heard of before. It seems to be fairly well known by scifi buffs, but it's apparently not a "must read". Still, I look forward to reading this beautiful looking tome. I adore the simple cover.
