Read this on the flight home yesterday. While it won't win any awards for exceptional writing, it's still a pretty damn good book and the concept is awesome. It deals with science vs. religion, namely the LHC/Big Bang/Particle accelerator trying to "disprove" the religious version of the beginning of life.
Tons of cool, dorky science geek info about particle accelerators, what actually happens, dark matter, etc, and the story it's all wrapped in is interesting enough to make it a page-turner. Leon will love it.
i'll have to snag that ASAP. my nerdom depends on it
