Ot to be learned StoryBranding: Creating Stand-Out Brands Through The Power of Story from the way it is written and executed That the name Algis Budrys seems to be nearlyorgotten is a shameAs It's A Wonderfully Sexy Life for this particular book In general there isn t much that I can add that others who like it haven t already said It has a uniue take on a post apocalypticuture and after all the zombie movies and other dystopian works produced in droves today a refreshing one at thatOne thing I will say is that I don t know what Budrys political leanings were and I don t care All too often I hear people ragging on past writers Lignin Biodegradation for that reason and it getsramed not in the time of the writer but in today s polarized views I think Pure Chance for the myopic there is room to get upset with Budrysrom left or right he gives different characters different leanings and most none or neutral In the end he doesn t make any sermons or judgments except maybe that men have to live their lives in accordance with their and society s current state And that state changes often The Lady and the Lionheart faster than people notice Maybe those are good wordsor any time including now.
