I like science fiction. I like some extremely silly science fiction. I like some books with an obvious philosophical agenda. What I do not like is books which have no warnings or indications of their ideological stance or books that butcher science to their own ends. Unfortunately, falls into the latter category of books I do not like. I would have been willing to give this two stars, initially, because the writing was terrible in a way that amused me. Then we got to the scientist-bashing and victim mentality. Even the terrible science I could have forgiven, were it not for the "all science is based on disproving the existence of God" theme.

This book was boring and an affront to scientists everywhere. It pretty much clinched my decision that First Reads is largely a waste of my time.

"Wow, this is awful. In some ways the terrible writing is hilarious, but the butchery of science... I'm going to finish, but only out of sheer curiosity."
