I don’t know where to go with this one. I read it on a recommendation from a friend. It’s…religious science fiction? The author has no history of Christian writing (I don’t think, anyway) so there’s clearly some larger intention to the faith perspective of the book. I don’t want to ruin anything for anyone, so let me just say that the book made me think about…what? I don’t know, really. But I was quiet for a couple hours after reading it, and a few days later, I’m still a little confused and thoughtful about it, and perhaps that’s the sign of a good book? There’s a Big Idea here, I’m just still sifting through it in my head.
