The Fifth Head of Cerberus

By Gene Wolfe

Rating: 2 stars

This is a book about twin planets, on one of which the human colonists wiped out the native intelligent species. Or did they? Perhaps the natives wiped out the colonists and took their place as shapeshifters. Frankly, I still don’t know. There are three stories that make up this book and I didn’t really like or understand any of them. I don’t know if this is just me being a bit dense or what, but I didn’t enjoy this book at all.
