Came into this with some very differing perspectives. Rotten reviews of the movie (which I haven't seen). Rave reviews from friends.

And a conversation I had today seems to sum it up best: It's a philosophy class couched as a science-fiction story. It...more

Not sure why I initially put this on my to-read list. But the Neil Gaiman introduction quickly escalated my excitement once I picked it up.

Unfortunately, though, it didn't move me at all in the ways it seemed to move Gaiman (though I did accidentally...more

Do you ever wonder which of their characters authors identify with? I know most are amalgams, but still, some are bound to be more like "you" than others, right?

I've read a lot of GRRM now. ASOAIF, of course. Some Wild Cards. Vampires and sci-fi and...more

Read two, a year and a movie later. A little less painful, perhaps, but no less meaningful.

Let me just jump on this bandwagon 18 months later (and a week after it left me wiping my midflight tears with a cocktail napkin): I loved everything about...more

Strongly written, hard-to-read book. You of course want your heroine -- who is also your victim, of sorts -- to succeed, but it's difficult to focus on her or her story overly much. And maybe that's the point. Cain doesn't shy away from awkward, unco...more
