I found the arguments and ideas presented to be both convicting and confirming.

The character development is very good, and you become quite invested in each of the main characters.

I'm not big on sci-fi novels, but do enjoy sci-fi movies, and I loved this book.

The perfect book club novel. This is a unique novel, the first novel that I've actually highlighted. I'm not big on sci-fi novels, but do enjoy sci-fi movies, and I loved this book. The plot changes constantly as new events develop keeping me glued to this book. I could not put this book down. (I'm actually in my second reading.) Along with a great sci-fi plot Coffeen delivers great reformed theology as characters develop. I've actually read some chapters three and four times.

Opening a closed planet parallels so many cultures around the world and the challenge of different the cultures interacting. If you are looking for reading that is not fluffy and will make you think this is the novel for you. There are many challenges in sharing the Gospel that this novel covers.

This book was both interesting and engaging! I found the arguments and ideas presented to be both convicting and confirming. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a book that will challenge them. The story moves along at a good pace (often involving me not being able to put the book down!) and the characters and ideas are well developed.
I can see this book being a revolutionary book in both the church and culture at large. I think that many people will find this book to their liking. I would advise however that the reader needs to be willing to engage with the book, as there are many concepts and logical arguments that need to be followed. Also, some of the material is for a more mature audience as Coffeen does not shy away from the true realities of life.
Please read this book and tell your friends about it! You will be glad that you did!

Format: Paperback
I was informed that the author gave this to a group of (bright) Jr. High males to read, and they all understood it. That is not surprising and even makes sense. This book strikes me as an ideal book to get adolescent males to take their faith and their discipleship seriously. But, there is enough self-reflection by the characters and sufficiently-intricate interpersonal relationships for all adolescents (and those who invest in them) to enjoy this novel. One might think that's an absurd claim for a science fiction novel, but there are not only multiple plot-twists, imaginative thoughts about future, leap-ahead, technologies, brilliant gaming strategy, thorny ethical dilemmas, and young-adult angst here, there are also meaty theological discussions. Of course, one might be tempted to by-pass those discussions and jump ahead, but the author has woven the dialogs well enough with developments and action such that readers who take such an approach will discover eventually that they missed something. Even the more controversial arguments, which will surely strike some readers as absurd at first, are seriously argued and logically demonstrated in the end. In several ways these portions of the book function like biblical parables - they will either draw in the one wanting to understand or repel those ready to reject. Some might drop the book too soon. Those who stick with it are in for a delightfully suspenseful ride and a great deal of insight and illustration along the way. There is good, cognitive, Reformed, Christian thought advanced here.

This book was given to me as a gift. I read the first 30 pages and got hooked. The character development is very good, and you become quite invested in each of the main characters.

The story itself is refreshingly unpredictable.

I would recommend parents reading this before giving it to their middle-schoolers, but mature middle-school-aged students can definitely handle this book.

This is not a politically correct book, so if your panties get in a wad over PC issues, this may not be the book for you. That being said, expand your horizons and read it!

Read this book if you enjoy science fiction or Christian fiction (where they actually talk about their walk with Christ). Read this book if you enjoy philosophy or a novel where character development is central to the story. Read this book if you enjoy watching characters who are real, ones who struggle with their own failings and mistakes and have to work at life. Most of all, read this book if you like having your mind stretched.

Definitely do not read this if you require your reading material to be absolutely politically correct, to be predictable in it's outcome or to contain mainly one-dimensional characters; you won't find any of that here.
