There are definitely some interesting ideas in the book, but the plot is shallow overall and it???s very easy to predict what will happen next.
Another reason for giving a low rating is that???for such a short book???the author often goes into unnecessary detail about the feelings and thoughts of the characters, while more work should have gone into making the mystery more mysterious.
Finally, the focus on catholic believes and ceremonies was too strong for my taste in a (supposedly) science-based book.
