Exhalation: Stories

Ted Chiang

$25.95 $23.36

I love this book. It hits all my sweet spots; meditation of time, consciousness, existence, choice... It's thought provoking and beautifully written, combining fairly nuanced scientific theory with fascinating, flowing narratives. Each story is vastly different in setting, tone, and scope and yet tied together by some universal themes and questions. If you're looking for a collection of short stories to make your mind soar, give Exhalation a chance. Side note, if you're familiar with the 2016 Amy Adams movie Arrival, that movie was based on one of Mr. Chiang's other books. If you liked that movie you're gonna love this book.
