One of the most important books I've ever read. It goes alongside Ender's Game & Shogun in terms of how often I bring it up in conversation
I literally find myself, time and again, drawing on this book (and those other two) for examples and metaphors to explain life, the universe, my thoughts, and everything to those who would listen :D
This is going to be a mega lazy review in that I have no intention of telling you much about the book itself
I will say that if Quentin's short-but-dramatic little Depression Phase hits a bit close to home for some people, just don't worry about it
-Remember Jurassic Park: Jeff Goldblum's speech?
-Remember Star Trek 2: The Genesis Planet ending?
-Remember X-Men, United: a certain character reflected on water as the @&#$^! Phoenix?!
"Life finds a way", baby!
And trust me, you will KNOW it, after reading this book. And better yet, you will have a shiny new collection of HILARIOUS Lore and Apt Anecdotes that apply to a million different situations in life and people you'll meet!
I love this book
