I don't read much science-fiction, it has not really been one of my favorite genres. I found this book to be more than just science-fiction. If you could have the chance to preview life before you were born would you still choose to be born? I have pondered this question before I even knew of this book so I was fascinated that this book touched on that. I have tried to decide what my answer would be, but I still can't decide. I really enjoyed this book and found myself pleased with the ending. I would recommend this book to others.
