Your Name (optional):
(Note: I would like to have your name so that I can attribute any quotes to
you that I might select from your comments below.)
Humanity Test (not optional): 1+2=
(Note: More than half of the ``votes'' I get are just from automated programs that are trying to trick me into posting
advertisements. The purpose of this question is just to make sure that you really are a person. Just type the answer -- a whole number between 2 and 4 -- in the
1 = Really Bad
2 = Okay
3 = Good
4 = Excellent
5 = AMAZING!
Here I want to know simply how good the work is as a work
of fiction. Consider "1" to be the worst novel you ever read or movie you
ever saw and "5" to be the piece of fiction that you consider to be the
best work of art ever.
1 = Barely Any Math
2 = A Bit of Math
3 = Math is definitely a main theme
4 = Math is central to this work
5 = As mathematical as fiction can be!
Here I want to know how important math is to the work
and how much mathematics appears explicitly in the work. A work which does
not really mention math explicitly except in passing and for which
mathematics is not very important should receive a "1". A work for which
mathematics is very important and which really discusses quite a bit of
math (considering that it is fiction and not a textbook!) should receive a
"5". Please do not simply vote based on how much you liked the work, but
rather on how mathematical it is compared to other works of fiction.
Any Comments (optional):
These comments will actually be read by me. If they seem
appropriate, I may add them to the website. If you ask any questions and
provide an e-mail address, I will try to answer.
