Stories of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
4) STORY OF YOUR LIFE ★★★★☆
“Your father is about to ask me the question. This is the most important moment in our lives, and I want to pay attention, note every detail.“
I liked the story and the characters. I have seen the movie several times and like it a lot. The most interesting for me were the differences from the story to the film.
Would I have liked the story more or less, if I hadn‘t seen the movie? Did I like it more, because I like the movie? Despite the differences? Probably.
Would I have understood the story as well without knowing the movie? Maybe.
Did the story add layers to the movie? Possibly.
Tricky. Still thinking about it.
