I recently read Twilight, and found this book among the used books at our local B&N... I couldn't resist the opportunity to pick it up. I'm not much of a science fiction fan, and the book started off slowly, but soon I was caught up in the story and read it within 24 hours.

This story was much richer in detail and depth than the one YA novel I've read by this author. Complex ideas about what it means to be human were treated with sensitivity and a great deal of thought. The suspense was kept up throughout the whole story and I find I've been thinking about it all day. I even re-read the final chapters, in case I might have missed something important on my stampede for the finish.
