Factoring Humanity

by Robert Sawyer

The cover pitches this as a tale about a mysterious message from space, which, when finally deciphered, threatens to push humanity to the next stage of evolution. It does finally get to that, but when I started reading the book, I thought I was reading a completely different tale. I won't say any more, so as to preserve the shock for others. Overall, I had mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, I found Mr. Sawyer's typical scientist hero, Canadian scenery-porn and Godless spirituality to be a bit cliched. On the other, the man is a great storyteller and does an excellent job of taking a science fiction idea and fully developing it. So, yes, check it out and enjoy!
