5.0 out of 5 stars wow, 24 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sweet Passage (Silent Prophet Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Wow this is a fantastic book if you like maths and religion. Its not to heavy on the religion but uses the maths to really make you think.There was one character called connor that seemed to be detracted a little from the main story but I couldn't put it down.It has left me wanting a lot more. I hope there is a follow up!

This is a reader's book. It is well paragraphed which makes for easy reading and the language is straightforward, adult and simple to understand without being infantile. The strong mathematical input can be demanding. It need not detract from an interesting story and set of concepts.
With Kindle it is sometimes difficult to gauge the potential length of the book because it is measured by percentage. It is of medium length and well chaptered so it can easily digested over time.
The opening of the book is fast moving and the author immediately takes us to the action, setting the scene and whetting the appetite for more. There are occasions when long conversations ensue, but this is a good way to explain some of the fascinating mathematical ideas put forward by the main character. The latter appears to be an amoral man and the means he uses to educate the world are seen by him to justify the end.
My attention was held mainly by wanting to know what on earth could be the outcome of both the action and concepts. Certainly the message of the book was achieved although my feelings at the end of the book were mixed - pleased to have learnt the outcome, but not sure of how I felt about the means. I suspect this was the intention of the author.
Was it a good read? Yes I think so. I would urge non-mathematicians not to be put off by the lengthy mathematical explanations which can sometimes seem a bit long; but the author can be forgiven for that as he really does having something new to say. Look forwards to a sequel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Meg Hayward, 7 Mar 2012
This review is from: Sweet Passage (Silent Prophet Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Just finished this book. Really enjoyed it. If you enjoy thrillers that you cant put down, then this is the book for you. Very Dan Brown-esque only smarter. This has made me think a bit more about maths role in the universe and religion.
