“Where there’s no free will, there’s no sin.”

This book is truly a wonderful piece of work. It makes one truly reflect on what it means to be human, to exist. It brings to the forefront the value of life, friendship, family and love. And it makes us question the rather backward notion that some lives are more worth saving.

“We are this world. Its next generation. If you’re not trying to save us, then what exactly are you trying to save?”

Because it is such a common notion in the world of politics. People, high and mighty, who think themselves just and wise, make life-changing decisions that affect an entire society. They pass judgment on people without truly seeing things from the other's point of view. I think that is one of the things I loved about this book. It just felt so relevant to the struggles we currently face in the world. Only the names of the players have changed.
