    Yes!

    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.
