Book recommendation:

The Book of Strange New Things

Michel Faber
Paperback
ISBN 0553418866
Buy on Amazon /UK

 

This is a fascinating exploration of how faith and story adapt in another world with its own language and history, and takes its place within the sci-fi and faith subgenre along with The Sparrow, A Canticle for Leibowitz, To Your Scattered Bodies Go, or The Dazzle of Day. One stray thought: That this book accomplishes such a depth of character in a protagonist who is ultimately pretty unlikeable without undermining the sensitivity with which it treats its themes is impressive.
