Review: EXIDON: THE NEW CAPTAIN by D. A. Workman



Review: EXIDON: THE NEW CAPTAIN

I found this book saddening, due to the main character. Young Sally is clearly a victim: held in contempt by her father despite her high intellect, decried by boys because she doesn't fit the societal trend, abused despite her wonderful imagination and naivete (perhaps because of--people fear "strangeness" and the unknown, reacting in anger, using insults, contempt, and abuse to "tear down" to size what they fear). In the end, Sally "triumphs," but I fear at too great a personal cost.
