Reviews of Tunnel Under the World, the (1955)
Review by ropie (2005-05-16)
This is one of my favourite SF short stories of all time. The style and content have been immitated countless times in both books and films. It deals with aspects of society and science in a brilliant way, within the framework of a gradually more exciting narrative.
Admittedly, it is a bit of a one-liner but the twist at the end is probably the best twist ever conceived in literature!
