Stories of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang Book Summary

From the author of Exhalation, an award-winning short story collection that blends "absorbing storytelling with meditations on the universe, being, time and space ... raises questions about the nature of reality and what it is to be human" (The New York Times).

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.

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

Stories of Your Life and Others (Ted Chiang) Book Reviews

SuperbFinally, a twenty-first century successor to Clarke and Asimov!.Score: 5/5

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..Score: 4/5

Science Fiction in Name OnlyTed Chiang is described as a science fiction writer but that is too restrictive. I don’t read or like science fiction but I heard Chiang on a podcast, became mesmerized, so I read, and loved, these stories. All of them have other worldly elements to them but these are not what the stories are about. Rather, they allow Chiang to explore philosophical questions about life, knowledge, time, the nature of beauty, the meaning of devotion. This is a gorgeous book..Score: 5/5

Great bookStories of Your Life is the best piece of literature that I’ve read in a long time!!.Score: 5/5

ExcellentThat last story is incredibly thought provoking. It’ll stick with me a while..Score: 5/5

Thought provokingI 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..Score: 4/5

Wow and...whoa...This author is really intelligent. You think about his stories long after you are done reading them. I couldn’t understand every single thing (“Division by Zero” really zinged my brain), but highly enjoyed each story. Strongly recommend if you like sci fi!.Score: 5/5
