Surprisingly good. I found by accident that this was the book Soylent Green was based on, and figured I would give it a shot. Many badly filmed 70s sci fi came from really good books, and this is one of those. I liked it much better than the B grade movie with the now famously silly ending. There is no "Solylent Green is people!" in the book. It's well written and has some interesting points about birth control, religious zelotry and the separation of church and state.
One of those rare exceptions where the movie outshines the book. Actually I can't believe this was the source material for the movie. Truthfully this was pretty boring and doesn't even really have an ending it just ends.
I wanted to focus specifically on the Kindle edition of this text. I enjoyed the book very much, finding Part 2 to be even more dramatic and thought provoking than the beginning. I found the other reviews to be fantastic for content. I would, though, recommend putting Soylent Green out of your mind and take the book as its own entity, which it is.
The Kindle edition has many typos. I'm used to finding one or two typos in a book, but this edition is simply full of them. Multiple typos per chapter. Of course, the human brain seems to ignore it and you can easily tell what the word is supposed to be... but that isn't much the point. I previously had difficulty finding this book in print (because I'm snobby and want my books to be new instead of used most of the time) so it was a great way to actually get to read the text. It would be nice if they did an updated version, with less errors. They do get annoying after you've seen 20 or so of them.
