Elizabeth is on page 121 of 378 of Journey to the End of Islam: Greatly enjoying this. It's so familiar, Knight's deep desire for personal devotion & piety, knowing that the paths for living that out exist within a long history of human failings. What exactly is in established religions that still allows for these small doors to liberation & holy mystery? How do innovation & tradition live together? How does the destruction inherent in revolution keep a tradition alive?

I am SO torn. On one hand, I greatly enjoyed most of this book, and was a bit sad when it was over. It's got an imaginative and unpredictable plot, and clever world-building. It's an interplanetary political thriller with a brilliant sense of humor. ...more

It had so much potential. But I couldn't follow the narrative well enough to finish this graphic novel. The story is not clearly told.
