i hadn’t really indulged in some real sci fi in a while, and it felt alien (teehee) to be back in the world of space ships and interstellar travel. once i got over my feeling of vertigo, i really enjoyed this book. greg bear has long been one of my favorite sci fi authors, he always managed to incorporate some big ideas into books, things that leave you thinking long after you turn the last page.
after flying through space, i came crashing to earth with this novel by terri blackstock. it was ok….and i agree that i should be open to all writers and readers finding their niche….but i was personally a little put off by this heavily christian mystery novel. no offense to any of my christian readers, it is just not really my thing. so it was jarring to me every time the characters stopped to pray before dashing off to find the bad guy.
