ahef1963: This book was seminal as it awoke stirrings of social justice in me, and made me realize how much I take for granted.

imyril: I think I mostly just loved the idea of Jesuits in space, but I also loved the characters and the prose. Knowing it will end badly just added to the bittersweet pleasure.

imyril: My Latin teacher made us read it. We were all deeply grateful, and then teased him mercilessly. Wonderfully dark, angst-ridden, alienating and alluring. Such prose and singular characters.
