This is a really good classic sci fi book. Thoughtful, interesting, unique, fast paced, with interesting ideas, problems to solve, and some nice character interactions.

I probably really only give it a 4.5, but the .5 off is for a somewhat rushed ending, but I'm going to give him a break as it was probably page limit requirements by the publisher, so common in that era, that forced him to rush it. ( )

Russell Graham is a member of Parliament on a flight from Stockholm to London when things get interrupted and he awakens in a strange green coffin in a fake town containing only a store and a hotel. The road goes nowhere and the cars on it have no engines. He and a handful of his fellow passengers are stranded and must figure out what's going on. I really enjoyed this one, especially the journey through the story, slowly discovering the truth along with the characters. I can honestly say I did not predict the Big Reveal, and that made it even better. Definitely unlike any science fiction I've read recently - refreshingly so. I'm a little surprised I'd never heard of it. ( )

This is a good science fiction story about different groups of people finding themselves in a very new and unexpected place. I liked how they figured out how to get beyond the river valley and learn who brought them there and why. ( )

Rather imaginative story of being kidnapped by aliens. Not too bac a treatment for the idea so popular back in the '60s and '70s. ( )
