LOL I had a schoolmate who was a nietzsche fanatic. He was more of a nihilist though. I agree that the ending is wanting, as ideally all books should stand alone on their own. But I don't think TDtCB is romance-oriented. After all, in all genre fiction, characters are the principal vessels of the story. It felt more epic to me. The grip I had with this otherwise excellent novel is that it is sometimes self-indulgent (much less so however than the review!), a flaw I remarked recently in many authors. view post

Yeah, I thought it amazing! However popularity contest should always be taken with a pinch of salt, although SF polls seem fairly sensitive. As to the Editor list, maybe many contributors didn't get to read the book (even if it has got a nice reputation on the net, which is why I suspect so many internauts voted for it) view post
