Nominated for the 2016 Hugo and well deserved. Brimming with ideas and hard science. The book is divided into three parts, the first two concerning the destruction of the moon and the major events following that event. The third takes place much late ...more

I picked this up on the recommendation of a friend and because I loved Arrival, the movie that was made from the titular story. The stories here are thought provoking and varied in the way that the best science-fiction stories are. Highly recommended ...more

This is a series I'd intended to read for a long time, but I've never gotten around to it. I'd seen a lot of positive comments about the series, and I really enjoyed the movie that came out in 2003. Finally getting around to it, I have to say that I ...more
