    I enjoyed this story very much. It's richly written, the characters fully drawn in few words. We are left feeling, understanding the questions, fears, hesitations and often confusion faced by adult children who realize that in order to fully live and love, they must face their parents and family as they really are, without fear. It also says a lot about the power of love, and supporting those you love, even if they don't always meet your expectations or agenda. I liked it.

    great concept, would like more

    interesting concept. I found some of it a little lacking in description. In the beginning of the book there was something about pain and paradoxes that didn't make sense to me. It is a short story, very short but it didn't seem finished, just like it dropped off on a chapter break and they forgot to publish the rest. I would really like to read more see how people can really interact with eachother when it is so obvious when they lie.

    Water that falls over you

    Very strange book. Read the over view and keep it in mind throughout. That helps it make more sense of the short story.

    This story is justly nominated for a Hugo award (the Oscars of science fiction and fantasy) this year. It's deeply human and has lovely turns of phrase.
