Read in November, 2013 — I own a copy, read count: 4

This is my fourth or fifth time reading this and I still love it. I also don't understand why people think it's dated -- okay, some / a lot of the references are, but the questions it raises are still so relevant today. In fact, it's weird to think how little has changed in the last 20 years. We're STILL trying to understand the implications of technology in our lives, and what it does to our understanding of our bodies, our cultures, our history, our humanity. Also the end still makes me do the ugly cry. In fact, I think it's even worse now because I know what's coming. (view spoiler)
