This review is for all six books in The Catalyst Story. First, it is very well written and very well edited. There is plenty of sex and very little of it is arousing, the sex however is central to the story, it is not just added on so those of us that are able will get hard. It is hard to tell from the first two books where this story is going and I am not sure, having now read them twice where it landed. That I read them twice speaks to my fascination wi the central character. He becomes more than human and in doing so becomes more human. The last book in the series is not really plot driven, it is thought driven. By that I mean there is a philosophy/theology being presented, if you are going to skip over it because it requires thought then you might as well skip the whole series. However, if you take the time reflect, if you take the time to read it slowly with the idea that finishing is not your goal, absorption is, then you will be rewarded. I don;t agree with the theory put forth, yet I found more than enough to roll around inside my head for a few days.
It would be easy to make Christ like comparisons and take this as a metaphor for Jesus. Too simple and too easy. I got caught up in the beginning by the ESP parts of the story, I stuck around because thinking is fun.
