I absolutely loved this collection of stories. Inspiring, beautiful, not-so-sci-fi that it was disconnected from our world.
What I also loved about these stories is that they made me think about my own world and and I wanted to share these conversations and thoughts with those around me.
I think my favourite story was 'Story of Your Life' (made in to the film The Arrival) closely followed by 'Tower of Babylon'. But even the short short, 'The Evolution of Human Science' was superb, right down to the very first opening paragraph!
