WWW : Wonder

First let me say WWW: Wonder by Robert J Sawyer, the third book in the WWW series, was okay. It was well written and generally an all-around good book. That being said I had some problems with it. I didn't care for the way I saw the military being portrayed. I thought it was a bit too stereotypical, as were some of the solutions to problems in the plot. Another problem I had were a few places where it seemed the author was disparaging Christianity. Now with that being said there were places in this book that brought tears to my eyes and believe me that is not an easy thing to do with me. I gave the book a 4 for the excellent writing and for the things I didn't care for in the story. It's sort of six of one and half a dozen of the other. So basically you could say I'm ambivalent about this book, it was okay as far as it went but I probably won't go out of my way to read the first two books in the series. If you like YA science fiction you should love this story.
