One of Sheckley's Weirest Tales
Any additional comments?
Reading the summary of this novel leaves the reader with a lot of questions. Never fear. All are answered in due time by Sheckley. Do the answers make sense? Well...
Let's just say this book is truly an experience of going down the rabbit hole. If you were to read only the very first chapter of Crompton Divided and then immediately read the final chapter, to say you might be confused is an understatement.
But if you're a fan of Robert Sheckley's work, you will rank this among his best. I would suggest checking out "The Status Civilization" or "The Journey of Joenes" first if you are a virgin to Sheckley's style - only because, as amazing as he is, he takes a bit of getting used to.
Nonetheless, this was a fantastic listen with a very talented narrator, giving each and every character his or her own unique voice and affectations.
A MUST READ for any science fiction buff.

Amusing, philosophical and deep tale
The writing is full of surprises and insights. There are some rather funny moments and situations as well.
