Parts of this book had a real touch of cleverness, and I'm happy to say that it wasn't as predictable as I had ...well, predicted. But overall I felt the writing style lacked polish, the back-and-forth points-of-view seemed amateurish to me, and the characters weren't even likable!I did apprecia...

Imagine this: On a hot summer day, a 16-year old, rotund boy invites you to join a new religion.

Your god will be called t...

With no physical body, there could be no accumulation of waste products in the bloodstream, no muscle fatigue, no drowsiness, no hunger, no thirst. To be a Klaatu was — in theory — to experience every moment in a state of blissful awareness. Nevertheless, as the millennia passed, many of the Klaa...

Other people do not have this talent. Let me tell you: I once peeled an entire bag of tangerines—seventeen of them—using only my fingernails, without losing one drop of juice. I lined up the peeled tangerines on the kitchen counter and they were as beautiful as any work of art. Mrs. Felko, my art...

“This way,” she said. Hidden behind the oleander hedge was a slot in the convent wall. Yar Song turned sideways and disappeared into the opening.
