A unique story that only [a:Ted Chiang|130698|Ted Chiang|http://photo.goodreads.com/authors/1208187207p2/130698.jpg] can write. Somewhere in the middle of reading it, I had the disorienting sense of going through a technical manual on a strange, new argon-powered device. And yet, it was not unentertaining. In another's hands, this might have been as bad as root canal, but Chiang's skilled writing makes it all work. Bravo! ( )

A spare and excellently-written story about entropy and the life of the universe as well as about self-discovery. Perhaps my favorite aspect of it was wondering where the strange world of mechanical people came from. ( )

In a very strange 'universe' (which could be a large jar) a scientist investigates an anomaly in time keeping by using radical brain surgery...on himself. A beautiful written story which encapsulates the power of the scientific method as an approach to life ( )
