I have read this book 7 or 8 times now, and look forward to reading it again (when I get another copy, since I lent it to someone who absconded with it!). Told from a first person perspective (difficult enough to maintain reader's interests....), it is suspenseful, surprising, and 100% engaging. Russo covers much more ground than the typical sci-fi book. Not only is it exquisitely written in terms of the language used, but it delves into the nature of evil and redemption, what it means to have free will, and best of all, it respects the reader's powers of imagination which only serves to make it even more suspenseful and enthralling. I can't recommend this book highly enough.

Philip K. Dick Award winning author Russo spins an intriguing mystery in Ship of Fools. He delves deeply into what it means to be human. The crew of an intergenerational starship desperately seek a habitable planet. They are divided by class and religion. The ruins of a human colony lead them to an enormous alien vessel -- the first contact of humans with another intelligent species as far as they know. Will it save them or destroy them?
