I thoroughly enjoyed Creations, and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys science fiction. Broadly, the book is set in the near future and explores the role religion and technology play in a world that has faced some serious environmental issues. The ending of the book is a fantastic "That was set up all along and I should have seen it coming", and leaves you intrigued about where a sequel could go. The plot is clean, the characters fairly well developed and relatable, and importantly in a near-future sci-fi, the world is believable. I dislike sci-fi books that throw out wild technologies that violate basic engineering principles or physics, and it is clear the author understands technology well enough that he doesn't make any leaps that seem totally impossible. The author does a thorough job explaining the technologies, making the book accessible to everyone. he book is an easy and fast read, I finished it in three short evenings of reading. I will admit the end of part 1 (there are 2 parts) starts to drag, but part 2 absolutely flies. As I suggested above the author does a good job explaining many of the advanced technologies he introduces, most of it coming in the first part of the book. I think one of the reasons I felt it dragged a bit in part 1 is that I'm an engineer and avid sci-fi fan, so I was already familiar with much of the future tech Mitchell is trying to explain. However, part 2 more than redeems the book because we now have the technology and character development set, and Mitchell does a really good job writing a fun, gripping, action-filled ending to the book. A note for US readers - the book was written by a brit. Some of the dialogue/phases may seem just a bit off, especially since the book is set in the US, but it doesn't detract at all from the story once you get the feel for it.
