The way The narrator made the characters come alive. and the tone and inflection he gave the voices for the characters.
The research that went into it. The way Michael meshed reality with science fiction. And the cats.
The dream scene with Jack and Sheldon where the music and talking were everywhere. The affection between the two gave me insights into both the characters that made them relatable and real. (It's hard to pick one. The scene where Alexander lands on Jack's chest eliciting the quote, "Hello you big dummy," Is pretty grin worthy, too.)
The scene with Monica Ripley and Carl Richards in the hospital where he read to her while she died. Such strength and compassion in that scene, I nearly cried.
This book was awesome-so much so that we nearly got in trouble at work for reading it. It was very hard to pick our favorite scenes because there were more than a few that stood out for usWe're definitely looking forward to the next one, and the third after that. :)
