From the author of Exhalation, an award-winning short story collection that blends absorbing storytelling with meditations on the universe, being, time and space ... raises questions about the nature of reality and what it is to be human (The New York Times).

Stories of Your Life and Others delivers dual delights of the very, very strange and the heartbreakingly familiar, often presenting characters who must confront sudden change--the inevitable rise of automatons or the appearance of aliens--with some sense of normalcy. With sharp intelligence and humor, Chiang examines what it means to be alive in a world marked by uncertainty, but also by beauty and wonder. An award-winning collection from one of today's most lauded writers, Stories of Your Life and Others is a contemporary classic.

Includes "Story of Your Life"--the basis for the major motion picture Arrival

Great book
By: Nisrina Ulayya

I've never read a collection of short stories before and this was the first, but I'm glad I bought this one. This book contains one of the most original ideas that develops into an anwesome sci-fi stories. Some of the short stories are simply exceptional and mind-blowing (Stories Of Your Life, Hell Is The Absence Of God, The Evolution Of Human Science) I think people should definitely read that.

Among 10 stories, these three are the most excellent piece of fictions I've ever read:

Satirical, compelling, an infusion of genius and wild thought.
By: Allathifah Desnia

For a moment, I thought of this book, not on purpose of course, a literary version of Black Mirror. But then again, it would be an understatement.

It incites one to reconsider one's own view on how modernity alongside its luxurious and seemingly magical technological development could actually alter humanity in an unpredictably humble manner, whilst on the other hand lifts one's own mind on how God should be interpreted when it comes to the modernity's tendency towards secularism. Make no mistake, this is A science fiction book, and it is a spectacular... See More

one. A rarity of which its beauty compels us to contemplate more about our place in this world, as a human—and that conjures up our role as a genius, a scientist, a curator of our own life, and above all, a crystal ball and the foresight of our future reflected in our every movement and decision.
