5.0 out of 5 stars
Works brilliantly at many levels, 29 April 2012
A brilliant book on so many different levels. As well as the science fiction fantasy of being lost on a bizarre planet, the book also has many insightful tangents about our own society on planet Earth, for instance the role of religion (which might offend some religious readers!), gender relations, leadership, technology, shared myths, education and much, much more. Once I got stated I could not put the book down; it's a ripping adventure story as well!
