The Long Tomorrow – Leigh Brackett

lb_thelongtThe Long Tomorrow by Leigh Brackett is categorised as science fiction. I doubt whether I have read more than a couple of SF novels in my entire life, so this was a bit of a toe-dip. [Is there such a term as a toe-dip?]

Published in 1955, the story takes place in a post nuclear war America, and it’s nothing like my preconceptions of a SF novel (the year 3000, lots of robots and aliens!).

I like the following summary I came across – ‘A well-done philosophical sci-fi contrasting the inevitable issues of too much power vs too much control’. It’s also a very fine and easy read involving family, religion and growing up.
