This reimagining of the story of the son of God is gently powerful and beautifully thought-provoking. Virgin Maryam gives birth to Avigayil in Nazareth, as she grows, Avigayil determines to be a boy, challenges thoughts and behaviours, and performs miracles. I found Him to be thoughtful and considerate, though I appreciate others may well have a completely different experience with the concept of this new story. Author Geoff Ryman has set the novel in an alternate reality, and writes with sensitivity and empathy. It was easy to slip into the tale as there are known frames of reference even though the story itself breaks new ground. Huge topics of family, love, relationships, and religion are attentively explored. Avigayil who becomes Yeshu, wasn’t ever completely known to me as they shone so brightly with such fierce strength and determination. Maryam, the mother, was absolutely fascinating, her journey was immense and hers was a more obvious path to be able to follow. This is a tale that stimulates emotions, and I cried as the story came to a close. Chosen as a Liz Pick of the Month, Him is compelling, intriguing and unforgettable.
