Its a fascinating book! It kept messing with my head with the way it would give an unexpected outcome at the end of almost every chapter. It was inspiring! It was able to grasp my emotions in ways I never felt before. I could see a lot of spiritual undertones to it which I liked. It was original and it seems stories are getting less and less original as time passes on. Had a great mix of technology and science. I give it an A and with most likely read my copy several times. God bless!
