The stories have this dreamy, Borges-like feel to them. They leave you with images that flash into your mind days, weeks later. For example, "Waiting for the Rain" had me trying hard to get the image of God with blank eyes out of my head - and failing. "The Boat Ride" sparkles with the splash of an oar in the water.
But the big one, the title story, is rather different in scope from the rest. It is a long play of ideas from physics, AI, anthropology, mathematics...like a novel compressed into 30 pages. I had to read it several times to grasp all of it.
Definitely worth a read...there'll be *something* in there you'll think was meant for you.
