Wow I must say I am torn, it has been 10 years since I last read this book, and I no longer feel it is a 5 star novel. This is the book that got me into books, it is the reason I read today. I think it could still have that kind of impact on a younger person. It's not a child or teen book I just think they are less concerned with the less than original parts of this book. The 'always evil big corporation' the 'too perfect town' these are things I have seen hundreds of times since. I guess I can't say those are the reasons I don't love this book as much as I did. I am not smart enough to come up with a better word, but I am getting to be a bit of a snob. The 'classics' have changed the way I like a book to be written I think. There are new books that capture that style for me, this isn't one of them and so at this point in my life I would give Creature a 3.5 - 4.0 But will still recommend it to anyone who was looking for a great book that, even now, brings some rarely seen twists. And so with all that I must say, for the improvement to my life that books have brought me, I will keep this as a 5/5 in hopes that it might help some one else to see the light, put down their controller and pick up a goodread.
