it was amazing

I'm re-reading the series (via audiobook), and had to come back and change my rating from 3 stars to 5. The change in format doesn't have anything to do with the new rating, just time.

Fire is, obviously, an important theme in the book, but even more, Stabenow herself plays with fire by taking on organized religion. She's not easy on any, but is especially hard on Christian fundamentalism.

It was saddening to hear a character trifumphantly proclaim how creationism lost in the courts, knowing that in the 20 years since the book was published, several states have adopted biased religious mythology and included it alongside scientific study. Is it possible we've gone backwards?
