Notes on A Fire Upon the Deep 

If you haven't read it, then you probably don't know that A Fire Upon the Deep is as good as your favorite science fiction books or better. It's the type of science fiction book so good that no matter how hard you search, and how patient you are, you only find one of its caliber every few years.

The less I say about it, the better it will be for you, and that extends even to the first line of the prologue. The story is epic and hard to describe. It's so epic that despite how exciting it is, and how unbelievable the visuals would be, and how exciting the last third of the book is, it could never be made into a movie. Best to leave this one quietly in the book, sitting there unnoticed and undisturbed.

Started reading it... thanks for the tip!
