Read in January, 1994

Mr. Simmons's works are usually full of horrific occurrences, and this one is no exception, but the gentle core of the characters in this one were what made me like this one. In this book he has his main character, a telepathic man, find a woman who is just like him, only to lose her to cancer. His times with her are reviewed in flashbacks, but in realtime he's caught up in some kind of crime b.s. It's a bit of a confusing book (being that it does have a mathematical equation for human thought somewhere in there), but it remains interesting and builds toward a very odd conclusion. I tried some of Mr. Simmons's other work but was put off by the gory details.

Joe Valdez Wonderful review, Ivy. You write like I think. "Some kind of crime b.s." is a thought that often passes through my mind, however, I really liked The Song of Kali and this one by Dan Simmons sounds intriguing.
