Great review! You did a wonderful job of compiling the complicated text from this book and making sense of it. I have to say it is not really my type of book, although I did enjoy the author's detailed writing. I think I will pass on this one.

I've been thinking of taking science fiction as one of my reading genre. Your review has just escalated the urge. I like deep thinking and this book looks like a well thought one.

This book is quite amazing and shares some distinctive similarities to 30th Century Escape by Mark Kingston Levin. The review was awesome, and I think it represented the book perfectly.

My first impression from the book cover and title was - oh no, another spiritual/religious "how to live" version. I was surprised that this book is actually a science fiction piece with spiritual topic integrated in the story. Although I'm not a fan of religious or spiritual books, I love science fiction and original ideas. The book review left me curious.

Your review was excellent. I am not much for Scifi stories. I think I will pass on this one, however, I am sure this will be a very good read for those who do love Scifi! The sample I read was interesting but I just believe I wouldn't be able to really get into the story.. :wink:

This seems like an interesting fictional book to peruse. I specifically love that the characters are well developed and organized. I'm however put off by the lengthy nature of the book. Great review.

Post by Alicia09 »

I've always been a fan of science fiction novels, so I think I might give this book a try. I especially love how the author included humor in the story because oftentimes I find some science fiction novels to be too serious. I think there is a very real possibility that humans would still be dissatisfied, even if we were able to travel to different planets. It's in our nature, and I think the author captured this very well. Thanks for the review! Hopefully, I'll win a copy of this soon!

I don’t mind a good science fiction novel here and there, but the sample pages were so confusing. Thank goodness for your review! It makes more sense now with D’Jang on his way to his death. But, the multiple faces and getting eaten up by a black hole were not at all to my liking. This one is a bit too complex for me. Thanks for all the insight on this one.

Good review. This is way out there for me. I like sci-fi but I think it’s a little confusing. I am interested in the part about what happens to the body with out gravity. I’ll try this out and see.

Based on the review I am not sure if this book is something that I would enjoy reading. I like reading most science fiction novels but I am not sure if I would enjoy this story. I also do not like the spiritual aspects of the book. I think that I will pass on reading this book.

I do enjoy science fiction books but Ten Directions by Samuel Winburn hasn't intrigued me but I will recommend it. Nice review.

Ten Directions by Samuel Winburn sounds like a very interesting science fiction book. I love it because there's an inclusion of advanced technologies. I will try it out. Great review.
