This story is nicely detailed and well paced. The author includes considerable detail around psychological and technological matters, as they were understood in the 1950's, which give the book a very nice tone when combined with the period detail, and it all fits together quire nicely.

The climax seems a bit overwrought and cliché, but it is completelly in sync with the story styles of that era. There is a significant denoument that ties up a lot of the details and provides a bit of a surprise ending.

Overall, it is insightful about people's nature and the way they might handle such a massive loss of identity, and as such a pleasant and stimulating read.
