If you wish to speak with me (me being Craig Melancon, the creator of this site) then email me at:


I have some questions I'd enjoy getting some answers to. If you could answer them?

1. What did you think of the book? Like it? Hate it?

2. Did you find yourself agreeing with Ellie on most issues, as I did, or were you more partial to the arguments of the religious over the arguments of the scientific? I was consistently agreeing with Ellie as I read, and I'd like to hear opinions from people who disagree with her.

3. Would you board the Machine if you had the chance? I know I would.

4. Who was your favorite character? I liked Palmer Joss, personally.

5. Was the book infinitely better than the film, or was it just a lot better?

I am interested in hearing different people's thoughts on the novel, and especially the philosophy inside!
