Man Who Fell To Earth (99 Edition)

by

Man Who Fell To Earth (99 Edition) Cover

 

Staff Pick

Just because a story is sad doesn't mean that it shouldn't be told. Every character in this often mentioned but infrequently read gem is ultimately flawed and painfully human, particularly Thomas Jerome Newton, the titular man from another world whose fall is both tough to read and hard to put down. The 1976 film adaptation of The Man Who Fell to Earth is worth watching as well, but, as usual, is an incomplete substitute for the original.
