Book: Babel-17

Author: Samuel R Delany

Details: (c) 1966 Ace Books Ltd; Pub Ace 1978; ISBN 0-441-04595-2

Verdict: Babel-17 has some brilliant elements but falls just short as a whole.

Reasons for reading it: I absolutely adored Triton, so when I found a book by the same author that deals with language themes, I pounced on it.

How it came into my hands: Second hand bookshop in Berkeley, though I bought it last year and I've forgotten which exactly by now.
