Why did I love this book?
This book of short stories gave me the inspiration to finish writing Soulwaves, a novel I first drafted 15 years and 15 other books ago. The film Arrival is based on the short story in the title. I love his writing as it’s similar to mine. He takes technology and turns it on its head and he loves playing with time, as I do. The alien encounter in the book and film is like no other. No ray guns or planetary takeover, just communication and a deep message for mankind.
