Gateway is the first book in Frederik Pohl’s the Heechee Saga and I was really looking forward to it This was on a list of the top 100 science fiction stories at # 33 on the list, and it was one I had not read before so I decided to give it a shot.
Wow… I can’t really recal reading a more tedious, frustrating, non-sensical piece of science fiction in some time. I kept on because I figured it had to get better, but it didn’t. The story telling was ponderous, and the whole AI Freud-bot scenes were just unbearable.
I went to Amazon to see the reviews and people just love it to pieces so it’s obviously my issue, but man…woof… no more Heechee for mechee.
