Why has nobody wrote a comment on this book? It is a good one. It connects our lives, outer space, Fantasy, Science fiction, Mathematics, Computer Science, an action story, a detective story, a horror story, and much much more. And all that in only one book! It is a bit too scary for my taste. I don't recommend reading it before going to bed:). But it is definitely worth reading. BTW the book is better than the movie!
This book was very odd, but rather interesting. The characters are developed well. The math content does seem realistic, although the actual concept that the book revolves around is a bit much to understand.
I'm glad to see this book on the website. It became a favorite of mine last year and I actually quoted it in a concept paper on "Imagination," which is one of the book's central themes.It's definitely different, but I highly recommend it.

May 2016: I am experimenting with a new feature which will print a picture of the cover and a link to the Amazon.com page for a work of mathematical fiction when it is available. I hope you find this useful and convenient. In any case, please write to let me know if it is because I would be happy to either get rid of it or improve it if that would be better for you. Thanks! -Alex
