The Resurrection of Roger Diment

Author: Douglas R. Mason

Genre: Science Fiction

Year: 1972

Rating: 3 of 10

This book was total schlock and I barely enjoyed it enough to finish reading it to the end. The story was somewhat of a Logan’s Run rip off, with a happy, sedated population that is executed at the age of thirty and sent to the “organ bank”. Naturally a few people being sent to the organ farms escape and find others that have been set free, banding together to cause a revolution against the androids who oppress them. The former description actually makes the story sound kind of fun, but it wasn’t. The female characters are paper thin, and most of the descriptions focus on their anatomy, in poor taste. For a while I suspected that perhaps this was a bad translation, but nope, it is just a poorly written book.
