Wow! I finally finished a book after a 2 or 3 month hiatus! This one should have taken me an evening to get through and yet it somehow took me a full 7 days. And it wasn't because it was a boring or poorly written book, I've just not been doing a lot of leisurely reading as of late. But anyway, about God's Debris.

This book is basically written like a Socratic dialogue. Adams states that he doesn't believe everything he's written in this book and that's good because while deeply philosophical, it misrepresented science and sometimes while reading the arguments I felt as though they were quite weak. However, this book does get the brain moving, and I enjoyed it quite a bit.

I'm not going to spend time going into too much detail about the many arguments put forward in this book, but essentially this is a fictional dialogue between two people and the idea is put forth that we are all God's Debris and our existence is God's attempt to piece himself back together.

If you like a fun, intellectual challenge you'll like this book.
