His writing is, as usual, timeless and wonderful, a treasurechest of wit and enlightening little remarks about the world humans in it and the technology we create.

It's a wonderful book and I highly recommend it.

Lol. I see your cats are still being funny. And I see you read a lot also. I used to do that a lot when I was younger, but now I've basically been reading only fanfic. It's so bad. XD
