Frederick Pohl again!

This time it was "Jem", and what a gem of a book it is! I thoroughly enjoyed this story of man's attempt to settle on another planet. It amazes me that I'm only now discovering Pohl's writing. I guess I just haven't been moving in the right circles! The stories are wonderful and the issues being dealt with are issues we could find being dealt with in our world today. I love that I never feel like the story is dated or that the attitudes of the characters are out-dated. I guess what I'm trying to say is that Frederick Pohl was and is ahead of his time. If you really want to understand what I'm meaning, try "Jem". Let me know what you think!
