Push Of A Finger by Alfred Bester is a gripping science fiction novel that takes readers on a wild ride through alternate realities and time travel. The premise of the novel is intriguing and thought-provoking, challenging readers to question the nature of reality and the impact of our choices.

Bester's writing style is fast-paced and filled with vivid descriptions that bring the futuristic world to life. The characters are complex and engaging, each with their own motivations and desires that drive the story forward. I found myself becoming emotionally invested in their journey and eagerly turning the pages to see how it would all unfold.

One of the strongest aspects of Push Of A Finger is its exploration of ethical dilemmas and the consequences of playing with time and space. The novel raises important questions about the nature of free will and the power of choice, leaving readers pondering the implications long after they have finished reading.

Overall, Push Of A Finger is a captivating and thought-provoking read that will appeal to fans of science fiction and philosophical fiction alike. I highly recommend this novel to anyone looking for a mind-bending adventure that will challenge their perceptions of reality.

Book Description:
Science fiction from the 50s by one of the masters, Alfred Bester. Society has committed itself to complete stability. Nothing is allowed to upset this stability, nothing that is not planned and approved and accounted for in advance. Yes, this is hard to imagine but this has produced decades, nay, centuries of predictable prosperity and peace. Even the newspapers have very little to write about. One reporter however is curious about the "Prog" building, where pronouncements are issued every day just as Moses issued the commandments. Everyone is locked out of course but he wants to know more, he wants in by any means and the results of that obsession are more far reaching than anyone can imagine. What would happen if just a tiny push with a finger to a critical element is made at the very beginning of a process? A little nudge that sends it in a completely different direction? Hmmm? - Summary by philc
