really liked it

This is an unusual book. The author claims he tried to write a novel that was part Crichton science-thriller, part Stephen Jay Gould meditation on nature, and part Carlos Castaneda spiritual adventure. I think he succeeded but the science does get a little dry at times. Nonetheless, the writing is absolutely beautiful, the plot moves quickly and there there is nice balance of intellectual meat, epic action, and subtle humor.
