it was amazing

I usually see the movie after reading the book, so this was an interesting experience.

I enjoyed the book even though I "knew" what was going to happen. I was pleased to get additional insight and watch the main character go through even more trials than I experienced in the movie (not that the movie was bad or should have included those things - different media formats have different requirements).

The writing was easy to follow and the ideas were easy for me to understand, despite being fairly well in the camp of hard sci-fi. So I appreciated that.

I wanted more when the book was done, which is usually a good thing. In this case, part of it stemmed from a very short denouement. But mostly, the characters and ideas were just so enjoyable that I wanted to keep reading.
