Michelle Stockard Miller (michelleamiller) | 6 comments The Monk took the lead for a while there, but... Darn it! I second I, Robot too!

Aditya Hadi (adityahadi) | 4 comments why you really want to read it Michelle? any specific reason ?

Michelle Stockard Miller (michelleamiller) | 6 comments Oh, I just have heard it's really good...and I already own it!


Amanda Good as reason as any :P

I'm just curious, I have to admit...


Deanne | 682 comments Michelle
Read The Monk and I, Robot anyway, both are very good.
I've read so much of the list now that most of the time I've already read what the group are reading.


Amanda Michelle...if enough of us would prefer reading The Monk and I Robot, maybe we could read them instead of the official choices?


Amanda Looks like it could be The Monk anyway - it currently seems to be a tie!

Lisa (anzlitlovers) This is a very entertaining book with apparently some political overtones which I discovered by accident when I Googled the name of *um, avoiding a spoiler* the name of a creature in chapter 2. If interested, see points 5 & 6 here http://www.erudit.org/revue/ron/1997/...
NB I haven't read all of the paper myself so I don't know if there are spoilers in it, best to leave it till after you've read the story (I've noted it here now because I'd forget the URL if I didn't).

Kristi (kristicasey) This book is awesome! I finished it last night, and was just utterly blown away by all of it! I loved it from start to finish!

Ali (alike) | 2 comments My goodness, this was a fun read. A little bit trashy and heavy on the religious symbolism. Thanks to the group for suggesting it - I probably wouldn't have thought about reading it otherwise.

Michelle Stockard Miller (michelleamiller) | 6 comments I'm still reading it. I hope I can finish it this week.
