Review by

I read this whole book, cover to cover, and enjoyed every moment of it immensely. That being said, something about how the argument distilled did not sit well with me.The book did not, as I feel it was supposed to, argument the impossibilities (due to socio-cultural circumstances) of telepathy but dealt specifically with how one person could not manage to handle it. It would be like reading a novel of a person who had the most brilliant talent as a painter, but could not manage to execute anything with it. That the protagonist manages to meet another person like him who is utilizing his talents, but in a way that seems cheap, does not help the argument very much. Still Silverberg is wonderful, if not a little hung about over sex.
