I remember reading this book back in high school. It was not assigned reading just one I read over the summer. I only remember bits and pieces now but I still remember not liking it much due to the ending. The book was written with a Cold War mindset. Given the differences in political climate now as opposed to when I read the book and the fact that I am older and see things differently I wonder what I would think of it. Might have to find a copy and breeze back through it again or maybe watch the movie.
