Larry Fontenot If you read the Emerson quote at the front of the book, you will realize that Atkinson IS writing about man, not God. The premise of the book is how mankind is ruined by the things we can control, and by things out of our control. In particular, the war was a great ruination of millions of people. Whether God had anything to do with it is beyond my experience. Given choices, we often make a complete muddle of them. The charm of this book is that the characters are smart enough to at least realize the extent of the damage and can ruminate over whether their choices made a difference or not.
