I'm torn between this book and The Dark Forest as to which is the stronger one in the series, but they're very different books. This one is constantly accelerating and getting farther away into the future. It gets less hard sci-fi and more into philo ...more

Even better than book one, the hard sci-fi stuff gets even weirder while being mostly plausible. The sociological consequences are really well thought and the story is unpredictable.
It quickly turned into one of my all-time favorite sci-fi books.

Whew! This series keeps getting better and better. There's build up in every chapter and multiple payoffs along the way, though the big payoffs at the end of the book are awesome.

It was good. The first chapter was enticing, so that's why I bought it. But the "interview" mode of telling the story grows tiring quickly, and it takes most of the emotion out of the story. It's similar to World War Z, but in here it's more straight ...more

As a "young adult" or "teen book" it's fantastic, engrossing. Without considering the genre/age group, it's still really satisfying. I don't read YA, but I do read other Sanderson books, and he doesn't dissapoint. It's still as tightly plotted and we ...more

“En nuestra lucha por ser libres destruimos la cárcel, pero al salir nos creamos chalecos de fuerza a medida.”

“There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane he had to fly them. If he flew them he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.

"That's some catch, that Catch-22," he observed.

"It's the best there is," Doc Daneeka agreed.”
Joseph Heller, Catch-22

“Can a magician kill a man by magic?” Lord Wellington asked Strange.
Strange frowned. He seemed to dislike the question. “I suppose a magician might,” he admitted, “but a gentleman never could.”
Susanna Clarke, Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell

“A piece of writing is like a piece of magic. You create something out of nothing.”
Susanna Clarke

“And how shall I think of you?' He considered a moment and then laughed. 'Think of me with my nose in a book!”
