There is more than one level at which you can read this novel. Reading on a personal level opens up a psychological questions because the book talks about human nature and the relationship between individuals and their vision of God or gods. Author talks about fanaticism, loyalty to ideas and the sacrifices that people make because of their ideals. The fiction genre serves as a medium by which a greater transcendence of the work is achieved and the clear boundary between material world and that of ideals is erased.
