Arrival (Stories of Your Life MTI) by Ted Chiang Book Summary

Previously published as Stories of Your Life and Others. Includes "Story Of Your Life," the basis for the major motion picture Arrival, starring Amy Adams, Forest Whitaker, Jeremy Renner, and directed by Denis Villeneuve.

“A swell movie adaptation always sends me to the source material, so Arrival had me pick up Ted Chiang's Stories of Your Life and Others: lean, relentless, and incandescent.” —Colson Whitehead, GQ

Ted Chiang has long been known as one of the most powerful science fiction writers working today. Offering readers the dual delights of the very strange and the heartbreakingly familiar, Arrival presents characters who must confront sudden change. In "Story of Your Life," which provides the basis for the film Arrival, alien lifeforms suddenly appear on Earth. When a linguist is brought in to help communicate with them and discern their intentions, her new knowledge of their language and its nonlinear structure allows her to see future events and all the joy and pain they may bring. In each story of this incredible collection, with sharp intelligence and humor, Ted Chiang examines what it means to be alive in a world marked by uncertainty, but also by wonder.

Arrival (Stories of Your Life MTI) (Ted Chiang) Book Reviews

Good stuffLots of great stories in here. It's a whole new type of science fiction. I'm not even sure if I would label it as science fiction to be honest. Some stories are slow some are fast, but most have solid characters you can relate to. If you can't get into one of the stories go to the next one although I recommend finishing them. The endings are great. The story of "Your life and others" is truly breathtaking. It's no wonder they've made it into a film..Score: 5/5

FantasticWorth a read.Score: 5/5

Way overratedWithout question Ted Chiang writes well, but this collection isn’t really science fiction. It’s more like science philosophy and some endings just fizzle out. The base story for The Arrival film is thin indeed and was very disappointing..Score: 3/5
