An enjoyable short novel that moves fast, as you might expect from what is essentially a long chase. Significantly different from the film. ( )

Though I was incredibly excited about the premise of this book, it ended up being centered around action and fighting instead of the dystopia.

This book was written in 1967, so for an entirely different audience than today, which made the writing style intriguing to look at.

As soon as the premise is established, Logan goes on the run and the book turns into an action story, with chases and racing, gypsies and monsters, various climates, and all types of things that are out to kill the pair. Though they were running because of their age, it really wasn't that different than if they'd been branded murderers or something and then had everyone come after them.

The history behind the premise was a little hard for me to digest. In the year 2000, the population of Earth had hit 6 billion and a movement had started to get everyone to die at 21. The youth eventually overthrew all politicians and city councilmen and took over. Nolan's optimism is cute--while there are a lot of youth, the likelihood of American politicians relinquishing power just like that is laughable. He hit the nail on the head with the population issue though.

Another problem I had with the story was in how society functioned. Kids from 14-21 were considered adults. While I think young adults often get a bad rep, it's hard to imagine them being mature enough for the jobs they needed to perform and to look after the other two-thirds of the population. I often found myself feeling like Logan was a lot older and more jaded than a mere 21-year-old.

It was extremely cool to see the technology that Nolan created for this book. While there's an elaborate transportation system to get people around, cell phones aren't a thing, showing how times have changed. Nolan didn't put much time into describing how this technology worked though, and I got kind of confused by how quickly they warped between scenarios.

My favourite scene was one in which he used a new technology to relive parts of his own life. This was a cool gimmick that allowed me to see what growing up in this world was like without having Logan recount it.

For what it was, this book was a good action story, but I thought the dystopian aspect could have been much stronger. I mainly enjoyed it for its age and different style, but I'm not much of a fan of chases and adventure, so I probably didn't appreciate it to its fullest extent.

Overall, though I won't be reading the sequels, I'm glad I did finally get my hands on a copy of this book. ( )

En el futuro, la superpoblación del planeta exige por ley que la vida acabe a los 21 años. Quienes tratan de huir son eliminados por los Vigilantes. Pero, ¿y si un Vigilante decidiera escapar?

I really like the base concept of this book, but the writing style is a little too rough for me. It's a quick read with a somewhat disjointed writing style. I never got attached to Logan or Jessica, or got a feel for their characters. I was indifferent during their many perils (and I normally get overly involved while reading). To the book's credit, there's A LOT happening during a mere 24 hours -almost ridiculously so. (You'd almost think Logan's lastday would be used up fairly quickly, given all the times he's rendered unconscious.) Overall: great idea, not so great of a read. ( )

[...] even though talking about Logan’s Run elicits mostly snickers and spoofs, the source material is actually worth a serious look because it presents one of the more colorful and interesting dystopias in SF literature.

Box lived in a white world. He moved in storms of dusted ice and loneliness. He did not tire; he was never cold; a part of him never slept. His world was porcelain and pale marble, alabaster and bone ivory. He made castles of bergs and palaces of glacier cliffs. He cloud-wandered the frozen immensities. And was content.
Runners say *please*; runners say *help*; runners say *mercy*; runners say *don't*.

Doyle had said *Sanctuary*.
[M]ost of his people were under fifteen, but what they lacked in maturity they made up for in fanaticism.
Dying young is a waste and a shame and a perversion. The young don't build. They use. The wonders of Man were achieved by the mature, the wise, who lived in this world before we did. There was an *Old* Lincoln after the young one.
