I can't really remember when I first read this book, but it's one of my absolute favourites.

I regularly come back to this book. It's one of the few that makes me wish there was more in the same universe. *smile*

Una fantástica novela de ciencia ficción en la cual nos muestra el punto de vista de dios, hay momentos en el cual uno se siente furioso al ver cómo se comporta los pasajeros y uno no puede dejar de sentir empatía con dios (hubo momentos en el que desee que OC los matara a todos) pero demostró una gran madurez (debido a sus siglos y siglos de existencias) además OC es justo con la obstinada tripulación y juntos maduran con el pasar de los siglos y generaciones. Cabe mencionar que es una ...more

Es una historia peculiar, extraña, contada quizás no de la mejor manera, pero es uno de esos libros que no puedes olvidar, por alguna extraña razón. Por lo que he leído, no soy la única persona a la que le ha pasado. Además ya es un clásico.
