really liked it
bookshelves: sciencefiction
Recommended for: philosophical science fiction lovers
Read in July, 2007

Try it! You'll like it!

What is it?
* A Russian book
* A Sci-Fi book
* A book of Philosophy
Wait, wait! It's all of the above.

This sounds like it should be just plain boring. But it was a page turner... Yes, I'll turn off the light and go to sleep in just a minute, Dear. Surprised and pleased! I've always loved philosophy, but rarely find it in SF, my vice fiction. But this kept me up late at night. And it is the beginning of a trilogy (don't watch the movie until you have read at least the first two books).

I don't like books with witches, vampires, shape shifters, and etc. So why did I like this one?
* the plot was not standard
* the twists were interesting
* the resolutions plausible
* the characters were not two-dimensional

Ultimately, I like a good story and this qualifies.
