I didn't mean to be offensive towards you, but maybe towards the Darwin obsessed "scientists" of today... who take everything he said as the word of God (a particularly interesting parallel here ), and that book sounded like another one of those works. But yeah, can't judge it by the title I guess.

Well, I'm in the process of reading "The Romulan Way" by Diane Duane.

Darwin-obsessed again sounds fairly offensive... Darwin, and all future scientists working on evolution, answered one of the great questions of mankind. Who's complaining about "Einstein-obsessed" scientists? What's the difference?

SHe was little though, remember..at the eclipse lol.

Spoilers ahead:

Quote:
This novel is most closely connected to Gerald's Game, in which it is revealed that main character Jessie Burlingame was sexually abused by her father during a solar eclipse. The same solar eclipse is detailed in Dolores Claiborne, and during the eclipse Dolores has a psychic vision where she sees Jessie being abused. Many years later, Dolores again imagines that Jessie is in danger; assumedly she is seeing the events detailed in Gerald's Game, with Jessie handcuffed to a bed. The two novels were initially conceived to be part of a single volume, titled In the Path of the Eclipse. Later editions of the novel have a foreword that explains the connection between the two.

I honestly don't remember. I think it was Franz Kafka's Metamorphosis for my english class. I have so many that I'm trying to read now, there's a giant stack of books on my nightstand that is likely to kill me in my sleep should it fall over.
