I've heard this is one of the all-time classics of its genre and it's been on my list for years! I'm going to have to rush to read it before the movie now DX The basic premise didn't really appeal to me, especially because I think it's aimed at a generation slightly before me (lots of 80s videogaming nostalgia). But the trailer sure looks epic so I'll have to rush it in my to-read queue heh. Right after I reread Wrinkle in Time!
Here is the node, you who hate change and fear revolution. Keep these two squatting men apart; make them hate, fear, suspect each other. Here is the anlage of the thing you fear. This is the zygote. For here "I have lost my land" is changed; a cell is split and from its splitting grows the thing you hate—"We lost our land." The danger is here, for two men are not as lonely and perplexed as one. And from this first "we" there grows a still more dangerous thing: "I have a little food" plus "I have none." If from this problem the sum is "We have a little food," the thing is on its way, the movement has direction.
