    1. Kaneda? What can you see?I can't remember who it was that said God was dead. Stephen Hawking? Actually, I don't really want to talk about that. I would have to hold inside of me what absolutely everyone everywhere else (and more every second) believed about or in God. What was and what isn't. Do the dead go on living with you after they are gone? I don't know what I really believe in either. It's not a place where there had been something and now isn't, or where there is a lack. If I'm honest th [...]

    2. Alex Garland wrote one of my fave books/movies The Beach. He has brought an amazing perspective in this book. The movie is awesome. I watched it twice in one weekend. The sci-fi is intriguing and not over the top. The psycho-thrillerness kept me at the edge of my seat. Reading this book (which is basically the screenplay) actually helped me with some parts of the movie that I was left wondering what actually happened. Also I read this in a day and a half which made me feel like I can read real f [...]

    3. Almost bought this book when it first came out. A new Alex Garland novel, I thought, but it turned out it was a screenplay so I waited for the film instead.Although the film was good, I was curious, so years later I decided to check out the screenplay in book form. Well worth it if you're an Alex Garland fan. In fact, it was better than the film. Plus there are some really interesting storyboards that look like manga comics of scenes from the film.

    4. Super fast read. Perfect for a day at the beach. Not many differences than the finalized movie screenplay, but answered some questions I had about the plot. I've loved Garland's writing since The Beach and loved this flick. Recommend to my science fiction loving friends.

    5. Even though I've seen the movie about a hundred times, reading the script brought me more insight and understanding as to what was going on.

    6. Sunshine was an ok book but just didn't grab me. In a very short nutshell, our sun is dying and a ship and her crew are tasked with taking a device to the sun to reignite it. The crew begin having problems which threaten them, their mission and humanity's future. They start going insane also, which doesn't help manage anything. I found Sunshine to be a decent book, well written but very predictable. It's alright but just didn't thrill me. I soldiered on through and finished it.Danny

    7. Despite devolving into sort of a weird slasher at the end, SUNSHINE remains a cerebral and poignant sci-fi film. It poses big questions and pits humanity against the void of space and the ultimate destruction of the sun. I've enjoyed Garland's novels — most recently THE COMA — and was curious what an original screenplay by this author would look like. I was not disappointed. The script is neat, the dialogue tidy, and his action and stage directions must have been a joy for the storyboarder a [...]

    8. Sunshine is an excellent Sci-Fi film, the book adds an extra dimension to it and is definately worth reading if you are a fan of the film. There are many aspects of the story in the book which were left out of the film meaning the book explains further some of the unanswered elements from the film.The only downside to the book is it doesn't cover in any detail what happened to the crew of Icarus one. I had hoped it would be mentioned somewhere as I always felt a bit disappointed it wasn't covere [...]

    9. Loved it. Haven't seen the film yet, but I will. I haven't gotten around to reading Garland's novels, but as a scriptwriter he's certainly the real deal. He also wrote the script for 28 Days Later. This is a taut, atmospheric story about a ship travelling to the sun to deliver a 'bomb' to remedy its ailment. Garland knows his SF history - he even names a character after one in Dark Star, for chrissakes. Very, very good stuff.

    10. This was a really interesting readI haven't read a play since I left school! Once I got into the story I found it flowed and I was making myself put the book down to get on with things I needed to doif I'd have had more spare time I think I'd have read it in one sitting! When I finished the book I downloaded the film and watched it which was quite fascinating as I was able to compare the images the play had created in my mind with what ended up in the film.
