The Book of Strange New Things by Michel Faber

Reviewed by Marcy (Library Staff)

You might say this book is about relationships – relationship between Peter, sent on a mission in a far away galaxy, and his wife, left to continue on earth as society is crumbling. He is a missionary being sent to a distant planet called Oasis to bring the word of God to the aliens. He is pulled between the needs of his unusual congregation and that of his devoted wife. Yes, this is science fiction. I’m not typically drawn to sci-fi but this book kept me captivated. It’s written with imagination yet is an interesting read.

Available through the CAFE library system.
