Colonies sent from Earth have degenerated due to limited gene pools and resultant drift...satyric about life in the 1950's. Ordinary work for these two. ( )

Not the best book by these two authors. Very dated. Pohl has written brilliantly but this one may be to early in his career. There are some good ideas in this story but it seems a little unfinished. ( )

Somewhere in the bowels of this solidly dated novel is an interesting concept having to due with genetics and interstellar colonization. Unfortunately it is lost in the heavy-handed dystopian society building and a clumsy deus ex machina conclusion. Despite an effort to prove that it is not as sexist as you might be expecting (i.e., when Helena confounds Ross’s expectations about a woman’s presumed inability to pilot a spaceship), the book is so profoundly sexist that it will be at least moderately offensive to many contemporary readers.
