Excellent novel, Stephen obviously has a gift for writing.
I too would like to see this book made into a film. Excellent characters, plot made me feel like I was living the story which is always a good benchmark for a novel.

This book is a page turner, it's very impressive and shockingly suspenseful.
Loved the writing, the story, the plot, the characters... everything.
The element of suspense works its magic from the very first chapter, accompanied with very well structured characters, a little bit of sweet romance, and detailed descriptions of places and surroundings. Scientific theories were explained to readers in the most easy way, making the whole science fiction bit a delight rather than a confusing complicated point of the novel. I also loved the very informative dialogs which are clearly based on a lot of scientific as well as historic research.
One of the things I truly loved about this book was how the writer squeezed in his unique sense of humor and sarcasm in the conversations, in such a lovely natural way that helped add this "down to earth" effect.
This book MUST be made into a movie, its story and plot is way much better than a lot of science fiction movies/shows we watched and are still watching.
The book is highly recommended, read it and trust me, you'll love it as much as I did.
