But then, as legend had it, the Invaders came, driving humanity into this last refuge. It takes one man, a Unique, to smash the legend and discover the true nature of the Invaders.

Ahead of its time
An exciting story with a good pace. The main character becomes the hero in bringing about a monumental change on the planet.
I suppose it could be compared to an almost Star Trek type of story. Arthur C Clarke seemed to have similar ideas/ beliefs as Gene Roddenberry
He manages to bring feelings of excitement or sadness into reality
Yes, it was. I found myself walking around with it all day!
Great book, great author and exciting storyline. Arthur C Clarke wrote this in the late 50's I believe and his ideas of the future are extraordinarily accurate!
