What passage from the book stood out to you? “It’ll strengthen the entire group,” answered Tilon, “the stronger they are genetically, culturally, and spiritually; the more likely they will be to survive and meet your descendants.” - I couldn't help but associate this bit with what the bible said about Abraham.
Are there situations and/or characters you can identify with, if so how? Being brought up as an Anglican, you immediately note the religious undercurrents in the book despite the sci-fi elements and twists.
At what point in the book did you decide if you liked it or not? I think I started to enjoy the book from the beginning itself. The editing is professional, and although the theme is a bit heavy, this reader kept was in awe how a simple concept was used to connect outside elements like aliens and science fiction.
Note - I received a free book from the author. All opinions are my own.
