I think I’ve owned this book since the 90s, but somehow had never read it.
Oh man. This book is fearless in its description of people (frequently men) who use religion for selfish aims. BRUTAL.
And the story apart from that is fascinating as well. I am sad that the third in this trilogy was never finished, because I suspect it would have jumped forward multiple generations, and I love when Butler does that. She’s such a great world-builder!
