Sobering cautionary story.

A history lesson and a short course in quantum physics all wrapped up in a gripping, accessible story! An absolute favorite. The movie does not do the book justice.

Fun, very plot-driven, reasonably well thought through. Science fiction for non-science-fiction readers.

Not the best one of his works, but it was mostly enjoyable. Got carried away at times with history explanation, but overall it held my attention and had a fun ending.
