While reading the other bloggers comments on this book (my review won't appear until probably next week), I discovered some interesting responses.
Overall, the majority thought it was a well written book. Hancock's continues to build on her reputation.
Some have a problem with her theology.
I think she explains herself very well on her site (Writing from the Edge). When I read a book dealing with this kind of theme, I try to keep in mind that it is a work of speculative fiction. I don't have a problem with this storyline. From what I have read of other's comments, the message the author is promoting is Bible based.
What I have read so far is well written. Now we just need to find a way to get it out there where the Crichton fans will find it.
