One of my favourite books. I was sad to hear of his passing :(

Yes! I read it at a very crucial stage in my SF development, and it's always stayed with me in a powerful way. I was sad to read of this, too.

I loved that book! So wonderful and so sad. And I remember the movie, though it's terribly dated now. Still, it was good for its time and the book is timeless.

So wonderful and so sad.

Yes! Both the book and the film have haunted me for years. I love when a story has staying power like that. It really made an impact on me.
