Reviewed January 2008
After hearing all about this novel on Gibson's Truth Driven Thinking podcasts I purchased the book. After finishing it I'm not sure I enjoyed it. The story of Bill and Ian's friendship and the"discovery" of a great truth is almost unreal. I did not bond with the characters. I cried when Ian's dad died, and read quickly turning the pages hoping to get to the great truth.
I'm not sure I liked Gibson's habit of giving away the future, i think I might have enjoyed the unfolding events more if I didn't know what was about to happen.
The religious facts were a bit interesting but unreal when happening during a real conversation. Not sure what I thought of this book, maybe time will help me develop a more likeness for it.
