Logan's Run - William F. Nolan, George Clayton Johnson This might be the worst book I have read this year.

Here is the plot: In a dystopian future world, nobody should live for more than 21 years. They should go to ‘Sleep’. Logan who is a sandman - policeman of the future - who catches the ‘runners’ (people who run instead of going to ‘Sleep’ when their time has come), decides to become a ‘runner’ himself when it is his time to die.

End of the Story. Really.

William F. Nolan never thought beyond this point. Even the end could not salvage this wreck of a novel. It felt forced and cheesy.

I have read grocery lists better written and more interesting than this abomination.
