Horrible. Unreadable. Who is the audience supposed to be? Offensive to Christians, far too preachy for agnostics. No characters to like or care about. I read 40 pages and hated it; then skipped a head a chapter and read the first paragraph or two of the next five chapters. All equally boring. Anti-abortionists and anti-stem cell researchers will be as bewildered as the pro-choice and progressive science supporters.
