I'd read "Sheltered Lives" and "Testing" and loved them -- they did not prepare me for this level of depth and research and... yeah. It's not what you'd call an easy read - there were times I had to stop and go back and forth and check the crazy date-stamps on the chapters... but the effort was worth it. I never want

Recommends it for: SF fans with interests in religion and sociology
