Searching. A rock formation called The Pinnacles provides the backdrop to the action in Hari Kunzru’s novel, Gods Without Men. Kunzru presents a story of a search for meaning capitalizing on the desert journey experience used for millennia of stories, and adds a quirky UFO dimension for modern interest: the role of the Ashtar Galactic Command. While Kunzru uses various time periods to present the story of our ongoing search for meaning, the part that gripped me most was the modern story of the search for a missing child. Readers looking for a well told but somewhat odd story are those most likely to enjoy this novel.
Rating: Three-star (Recommended)
