“You can’t get so hung up on where you’d rather be
that you can’t make the most of where you are.” – Aurora Lane –
I don’t really know how to discuss this without giving away the plot, so please forgive me that one.
“Say you were trapped on an island all alone and you had the power to wish someone there with you, but you were sentencing her to a life on the island, too. … Say you found a way to make your life 100% better but it was wrong and you couldn’t take it back. How do you do the math on that?” This is the horrific dilemma Jim finds himself in. He awoke 90 years too soon on a space ship heading to a new life on a new planet. He can’t go back asleep. He’s the only person alive. How do you survive something like that? It’s not good for man to be alone, the Bible says. There was no other living thing alive there to keep him company… unless he chose to wake up another passenger—and he’d found the ideal woman to keep him company.
