Make room on your shelf next to Morrow, Blish and Miller
SF has always had a fascination with the tension between religion and science. The result has been some of the most intelligent, literary and enduring novels ever written in the genre. Donnelly has written such a novel in 'Letters from the Flesh'. Two seemingly separate but resonant plots move you through an examination of what it means to believe and what it takes to be a believer. But watch carefully, because Donnelly has as much to say about 'scientific belief' as he does religious belief. This author obviously understands and sympathizes with believers in both. But this novel is not a dry intellectual exercise. Donnelly's tightly written plot moves at an almost blistering pace, taking you from the crowded streets of ancient Damascus to a media-driven riot in modern America, delivering you to an unexpected resolution that is surprisingly tender. Sometimes outrageous, always brilliantly executed and well-written, this novel is well worth the read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
