Cindy I enjoyed this book...looking forward to the movie coming out.

message 2: by EP (new) - rated it 4 stars

EP Me too...Great read.

Aleksandra Royzen Yep me too. Definite classic.

Rebecca Schwarz I have to say I was a little irritated by the first third of the book, switching into different stories felt like a little too much literary artifice but then the middle story and the cascade effect of finishing all those others turns out to be really powerful. One of my top ten reads.

Josh I think the movie is in a small group of films that actually surpasses the book.

Ellie [The Empress] I've seen the movie few times and for me it is one of those movies that need to be seen more then ones. It seems well complicated. I can't imagine the book being an easy read.

Phil Alban The book was excellent and thought-provoking. A bit of a tedious read at times, since I didn't always identify well with the characters (protagonists) or sympathize, but very good altogether. Haven't seen the movie yet, but it may be something of a let down. Glad this book is part of my sci-fi collection.
