Stories of Your Life and Others

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Includes “Story of Your Life” the basis for the major motion picture Arrival

Stories of Your Life and Others delivers dual delights of the very, very strange and the heartbreakingly familiar, often presenting characters who must confront sudden change—the inevitable rise of automatons or the appearance of aliens—with some sense of normalcy. With sharp intelligence and humor, Chiang examines what it means to be alive in a world marked by uncertainty, but also by beauty and wonder. An award-winning collection from one of today's most lauded writers, Stories of Your Life and Others is a contemporary classic.

Customer Reviews

Ok. A bit on the overrated side.

I thought it was pretty good. Hype was pretty big. I did not recommend this to anyone I know, so it wasn't THAT good. My expectations were too high.

Superb

Finally, a twenty-first century successor to Clarke and Asimov!

Thought provoking

I bought this book because I heard that one of the short stories was the basis for the film called "Arrival".
This is a thinking person's science fiction. One of the stories took a twist that I couldn't see coming-that doesn't happen all that often, at least for me.
