Yes! Growing up, the genetics and sciences fascinated me because of this book, and now that I am older, I find other things that I can reflect on.
Yes, but sadly, my commute is too short to :(
The concept was fantastic, but because it was shoehorned into one book, I feel that an opportunity to paint a more vivid landscape with each era was missed. The character development came up short as well. i found it hard to empathize with any of the main characters; they were not as deep as they should have been to make this a successful book in my opinion.
I would. A movie, with awesome CGI would make this story amazing. Film can set up eras with something as simple as an aireo shot.
Now that I have read this, i will take down my copy in my library and trade it for something that will fit better.
I tried to read it growing up and it couldn't keep my interest and now that I am older I tried the audio book and discovered WHY!! The sentence structure is almost that of a young reader, and I found the short, choppy sentences to be annoying and bothersome.
If this is the "cornerstone" of scifi, no, I will read David Weber or Elizabeth Moon.
