Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The story is about fixing the sun, and in the end Ephraim provides a lasting fix by becoming the monitor in charge. As a side-effect, it fixes Ephraim as well.

Ephraim's innocent narration is entertaining. I initially thought the story was post-apocalypse, so it was amusing when I realized they were on a generation ship.

Con: The sun shouldn't appear to rise on a generation ship. It's hard to believe that just anyone could take over a critical ship function.

  1. I liked the twist of Anabaptists in space, but I thought the ending was sad.
