My oldest sister, who is a microbiologist and not particularly an sf fan, 
gave this one high marks. I think she would like _Passage_ too (which I've 
just finished and thought was spectacular, though I don't think I quite 
understand the ending), but I am not about to recommend it to her just now as 
she has just finished breast cancer treatment. Hm, don't know if she would 
like _To Say Nothing of the Dog_ or not. I wasn't as wild about that one 
myself. Must try it again.
