    I read this book a long while ago, and subsequently forgot the name and the author - only remembered the story. Finally I've got the name.

    The concept of this book is quite original, and bone-chilling. Certainly memorable. If you haven't already, read it!

    One of the best first alien contact books! The concept of alien mind and consciousness is outstanding.

    I read this book after finding it recommended in this list. Fantastic book!

    I love science fiction, but hate wading through the schlock to find the really smart ones. Blindsight is definitely one of the smart ones.

    I got the same feeling I had when I discovered Asimov as a teen.

    This website is all about the books collection. I really love your collection of books because i like to read the book. I have spent my half life in books reading. In other words, books reading is my hobby. However, I like to publish my story at https://www.thriveglobal.com/stories/25876-happiness-hormones-how-they-differ-and-why-it-is-important which i want everyone read and place feedback or suggestion for me to improve my writing skills more.
