Just like the previous book reviewed, Alfred Bester's The Stars My Destination is an example of something nearly extinct in modern SF, the short stand-alone novel. Very daring and innovative for its time, with many elements that pre-date the cyberpunk sub-genre, it unfortunately also has some problematic elements. Mainly the way the women are depicted, and things done to them or said about them. Otherwise, it still gets my recommendation.
