really liked it
bookshelves: sciencefiction
Read from May 05 to 06, 2013

A fine reminder that a strong enough thought experiment, backed up by decent writing, can still coalesce into a good science fiction book.

The characters aren't exceptional, but the exploration of narrative, reality, and responsibility is very well-done. It's imaginative adventure, with some funny bits that follow naturally.

Recommended for fans of science fiction (televised or written) and for those interested in philosophical arguments.
