Who is, "I Am"? What does, "I Am" mean? Those are the major questions in the book. Is it an ancient life form? Is it an alien spaceship? Is it the girl? Is it her boyfriend? Is it their unborn child? Is it a combination of all of those. Is it life itself? Is it the history of how life began?
We don't know, but the questions it raises are cause for deep thought. As humanity faces the possibility of the earth being destroyed by an asteroid or a comet--or something else, it seems that three different beings are coming to life. The most obvious is the unborn baby. The other two are not so clear.
Does coming to the realization that "I am", no matter who or what you are, give you the ability to make choices, to live, to die, to love, to kill, to transform, to sacrifice? Those are the questions I thought were raised in the book and each reader has to answer the questions for him/herself.
I thought the astronomy was interesting. Having people come to understand what the comet is composed of and what it means for the earth is sobering, but it isn't really dwelt upon. The story is really about what it means to be alive, no matter what form that life takes.
I highly recommend this book, but be prepared to think about it for a long time after you read it.
Jenny, the girl, has to learn how to get by without someone she thought she couldn't live without, she has to get by on her own, and discover/uncover something in her that is bigger than the grief she feels. The science background and that it's a female scientist lead character, make it different and more interesting to me. I don't think you have to have a science or astronomy/physics background to enjoy this book, but people who do enjoy those topics will have an extra reason to like the book.
