The author of this book clearly had an agenda and remained trapped in his anti-christian dogma and prejudices. He derides Christian theology without providing any reasoned exposition of why he has reached that position. It\'s just a collection of anti-christian diatribes which exhibit little freethought but only the authors own prejudices.">I came to this book with an open mind looking forward to reasoned discourse. Instead, I found a diatribe aimed only at Christianity.
Freethinking is about rational analysis using logic, facts, science and reason to derive rational conclusions and expositions on subjects. To quote Wikipedia
\"Thus, freethinkers strive to build their opinions on the basis of facts, scientific inquiry, and logical principles, independent of any logical fallacies or the intellectually limiting effects of authority, confirmation bias, cognitive bias, conventional wisdom, popular culture, prejudice, sectarianism, tradition, urban legend, and all other dogmas. Regarding religion, freethinkers hold that there is insufficient evidence to support the existence of supernatural phenomena\"

A good read if a little american-centric. Edison it appears can turn his hand to anything. But despite this and some what would be dodgy science now, it's not a bad read.
His other book Columbus of Space is probably a better read.
Not for the purists but it is a good escapist read.
This was a good story, the only problem was that it was the Seven Samurai/Magnificent Seven wrapped in a fantasy world. The descriptions of combat and limbs being hacked and people being disembowelled does get a bit repetitive.
It was an absorbing read none-the-less, and it was a good page-turner. The characters were well developed and did invoke some sympathy for the characters.
Because it was too similar to the 7 Samuarai and the Magnificent 7, I can only give this four stars. Still a recommended read.
I give this a rating of 5 stars because it\\\'s a real page-turner right until the end. The suspicion of who the murderer is shifts through the story, and the supernatural element just adds to the mystery.
I tried to solve the mystery but got it totally wrong as my chief suspect was in fact innocent.
This is not the sort of book I normally read, but I recommend this book to anyone.
