Radiance based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The novel may be radiant as well as fascinating, but I confess that some of it was above my head. I am not a great student of metaphysics, but the author had me quite interested as he compared the value of a healthy life with that of a handicapped individual and then that of an aborted fetus. But it's all done in such an interesting fashion that I was never bored, just aware that I didn't quite understand it all. The pretext for the story is that a father accompanies his daughter to a fantasy celebrity camp in Los Angeles, where she falls in love- or infatuation- with the handicapped youth who has such an awareness of his carbon footprint and a deep cynicism of so-called normal values. The two get distracted and it is in the finding that the story reaches its high points. One good question- did two and two equal four before the Big Bang? If you have read this far, you need to know that I am probably the last guy who should be writing the first review! This is one intelligent book.
