Great adventure read!

I loved it as a kid, and I love as a parent. Has a lot of the simplistic feeling as 'The Giver', but without all the weighty moralizing. Straightforward plot, with clear progression toward a goal make this an easy read. The book is some forty years old, so the prose is clean, focusing on the story rather than trying to be 'edgy' or 'gritty' like so much more recent books.

Really bad writing technique

Although the story line is fair, the writing style is sub par. In reading this book with my son for school, I don't even understand many of the sentences. The writing is very poor, as I read with my son, I need to change the words to have the book make sense. And then need to explain each paragraph as it is not understandable.

Clever SI-FI

I think this book is great. There is hardly any violence but it is still exciting. The story also makes you imagine more about about a world controlled by alien's. The message is never believe what your told always think about things.

A must read book for all ages

This book is a great book about a little romance and great adventure. All kids from 10 to 190 will love this book. A tripods triligy is a great trilogy
