Good read, but just a little to obscure to read easily. I kept having to dig for understanding, the way you would if you were reading an academic text. That subtracted from the enjoyment of the story. I'll read the next one. Let's hope it's easier to follow.
A good solid read, about a far-future time when a high-tech civilization becomes literally religiously anti-tech. My usual comment about many science fiction works: more character development would have delivered this book to four stars. As it is, it left a lot of things kind of hanging, such that I might read a next installment just to see how things turn out. 3.5 stars.
I did not enjoy this book. It had a good dual plot. It was just the way it was written and the addition of characters that had no bearing on the main story. It also had the feel of being a 2nd or 3rd book in a series, not a first one.

I studied under prominent deconstructionists, feminists, marxists, and other -ists (and learned very little except that it's not very nice to become an ist, generally speaking; it took me years to recover from theory), practiced law for a while, did residential design and construction for a while, got married and started a family, practiced law again, then took up the pen.
