Demian's Thoughts:

While the plot of this book is rather derivative of a certain classic science fiction film it works fairly well as a gamebook. The writing is fairly weak, being rather repetitious and using exposition poorly, but the game aspect is interesting; though the storyline is fairly linear (something which usually bothers me), the choices make it feel more flexible than it really is, somehow managing to make it quite enjoyable.
