    "I have to say that as usual the book is better than the movie. This book is well written. It is not as interesting to me as it is to others. It tends to be higher rated by others, and I will admit it was worth the read. But it is not among the ones I consider best."

    "The whole series will most likely have you wanting to read it all in one go. I found the story to be quite intense, the characters and setting are of high quality. If you want something that is set in the future, this would be a good place to start. I think that you will be glad you decided to read the book, the movie of the same title is also quite good. "

    "I thought the account featured in this book were far fetched and too convoluted to wrap my head around. Some of the stories were scattershot and were difficult to follow. I would not recommend this book."

    "This book is meant as a young adult book, but I found it incredibly gripping even as an adult. It's set in the near future of the U.S. and the implications of society reflect on the current world in an interesting way. It isn't political or pushy with its views, though. The main focus is the depth of the story and how it's guided by the interactions between families and their love for each other, legal or not."

Here they are referred to as forecast strategists and strategy forecasters. Either way they stare in the abyss and it bites back. It drives them insane.
