Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Centuries from now, man has come up with a strikingly simple answer to overpopulation: A person is given one day a week to live, work and play. For the other six days, he is "stoned" - placed in suspended animation until his day rolls around again. In effect, his body lives for seven times a lifetime in a world that has seven different realities. All seven are worlds of plenty and peace; yet even in paradise the dark side of human existence is not far below the surface. There is still passion, ambition and crime, including the major new crime of the 35th century, "day-breaking." Because they possess a substance that prolongs life seven times the normal span, a few men and women are able to "break day, " or live seven different lives, one on each day of the week.....One of America's finest science fiction writers, Philip Jose Farmer has written a brilliant novel of speculation about the future and man's talent for solving new problems that is both visionary and rooted in modern dilemmas. Dayworld will become a new classic of ideas and high adventure.
