    Have you read any of the sequels (Reflex / Impulse / Exo)? They tend more towards the action adventure end of things; thoughts?

    • I have not read them yet — in fact, I didn’t even know they existed until I started researching this blog. I’m intrigued to read them, though I think the book stands just fine on its own.

    I was terribly disappointed when I realized that the movie was telling a completely different story than the book I had enjoyed. I’ll never quite grasp why studios buy the rights to things if they don’t want to tell that tale. It’s akin to marrying a schlep, hoping to turn him into Prince Charming.
