Opnion

I think for be a classic literature it is a really interesting book, it is a book that is science fiction and I really like science fiction, it is a subject that make us think and imaginary the things, the book bring a kind of action story, that is not normal for classics, that have more movement. And it really show how we do not show ourself a for people, and we always something hide inside of us , that maybe we not even know.

Favorite part

That was my favorite passage "I learned to recognise the thorough and primitive duality of man . . . if I could rightly be said to be either, it was only because I was radically both." It is deep and make we think, that we are only living from shadows, and our inside nobody knows it, not even us. I like phrases that make me thing and find a meaning for it, and this one show me things that I did not used to think normally.
