I've always thought that writing science fiction or fantasy is about establishing a world that doesn't require too much suspension of disbelief. As well, laws and rules must be established and followed. Extending too far or breaking those guides caus ...more

I was not prepared for Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. I'd decided to read it, wanting an adult novel as opposed to YA. I wanted something with more realism. But this novel has a science fiction quality to it, set sometime in the near future. Seve ...more

What did I think of Khaled Hosseini's And the Mountains Echoed?
