    "If you ever wanted to know what it is like to be trapped on a desert island read this book and wonder no longer. While the concept draws you in, the writing leaves you stuck without a way to escape. The story line could be stronger with more character depictions for drawing the reader in. "

    "I loved this book from start to finish. It is great storytelling and gives you a look at the reality of our world today. The power of companies vs the plight of the little guy, the fear we create among each other about other people, the ongoing issues related to the climate; it's a great book. I have long commutes at times so i love to read a good book a long the way and one that keeps me engaged. This book kept me engaged. I had a hard time putting it down; i wanted to continue reading as the writing is that good. This book will inspire you in ways you didn't think possible. A fantastic book overall. "

    "I've always heard about Le Guin's literary prowess before first reading this book (it was the first one I read from her). Let me just say that those people were absolutely correct. Her writing is one-of-a-kind and you will not be disappointed."
