I'm not quite sure what to think about this book. It was good but I wasn't a huge fan of the writing style. 2 page paragraphs are hard to read. Otherwise, the descriptions of the planet are very vivid and the story is interesting but you get the feeling that there is something big they aren't telling you. Clearly, it is a good vs. evil, mankind struggling with God story. I'm hooked enough to keep going to book 2.

Beth F. This trilogy has been sitting on my pile of books to read for the past 10 years. Maybe more. I'm not a huge science fiction fan but someday...

The second one is even weirder so far--lots of philosophical discussions and descriptions of the new planet sound like C.S. Lewis was taking mushrooms. But I'm only about 40 pages into it.


Beth F. Ha!

A lot of his books are like that... :)
