Not his best
on 16 February 2013
Though normally quite a fan of Chris's books I feel this was one of his worst. I'm very much in the atheist camp but did find Chris's harrangues against Religious Fundamentalism to become more and more tiresome and had to skip paragraphs that felt as if they'd escaped from a Richard Dawkins novel, just to make it through the story.
That said the story itself was good and was the only thing that kept me going when at times I wanted to just abandon the book.
Another minor issue was the books 1999 setting, pre-millennia angst seems such a long way off, dating the book quite severely
