bookshelves: magical-realism

interesting debate between science and religion. It is done by two ex-lovers who share emails after a strange encounter many years after breaking up. They have completely conflicting world views; one has a science naturalistic metaphyisic,the other a spiritual religious. This all make for a good debate that surounds issues and events of thier relationship and the interpretation of those events. It all makes for a strange twist at the end.

This is worth a read if you are interested in philosophy, religion and science debate. If not do not bother reading this book, it will probably bore you. the frist half of this book focuses on those concepts; only second half makes more of the story. Great ending though.
