This should actually be closer to a 3.5 for me. I was very much hooked by the beginning of the novel, but then through the middle it kinda dragged a bit (quite an achievement since it isn't a long book by any means) and then it redeemed itself a little by the end. As one might expect from the title, it's in the long scifi tradition of examining religion and god from a scifi tradition, but ended up being for me a book mostly about human stupidity. A fun quick read which might have been better served by being a short story.
