it was amazing
bookshelves: science-fiction
Read in May, 2012

Religious science fiction set mostly in the middle ages with rich references to the history of scientific thought while describing in delicate scenes first contact. I was moved by the richness of research; ok, sometimes too rich for my taste (the physics was beyond me), but I especially liked the sense of stress among those of religious conviction. The author limned this perfectly. Oh, well done - and I look forward to rereading it. How this world was made so real, I don't quite know, but I will never look at a grasshopper quite the same way again.
