I am not really sure. I think shooting God was just an excuse the protagonist gave the Nazis to install his plans (building a space ship).


Yeah it seemed to be a small concept in the book, I think it was mentioned once or twice, but I don't believe any sort of religion played much of a part in the larger scheme of things.

Thank you, Taylor Razzani, for your input. It's good to know that religion didn't really play a part in the book.

It is very obvious that the author is both a genius and a very talented writer. However, I just really didn't understand the purpose of the story. The individual pieces were interesting, but they were tied together in a way that made very little sense. I found most of the novel to be very tedious to read due to the complicated theories being tossed around. Overall I gave this book 2 stars. It would only have received 1 but it was very well written, so points must be awarded for that.

This was a pretty decent book. I'm not very well acquainted with this specific genre, but I liked the themes this book followed and found myself pondering about them for a long while after reading it.

I thought this was a great book and a very interesting and original idea . The end lost me a bit though . I feel like I would have liked the individual stories to have been longer .

This book held my interest except for the part about the Ottoman Empire and those wars. I thought those parts were a little long, and gory and I think the concept of this part of the story to suggest only the strongest genes survived these periods, is a good way to explain this concept, but didn't need to be this long. It was an interesting idea that I hadn't thought about.

I had read that this book explored the idea that aliens were among us and that was why I was interested in reading the book. I feel like I missed something because I didn't really understand how this idea was expressed in the book.

I have recommended this book to other people who I thought would be interested in the parts of the book that I liked which were the beginning stories of the same events told from two completely different perspectives.

This is a hard book for me to rate. I think it would be unfair of me to rate it because this book is not generally not my cup of tea. It is definitely not a bad book by any means. it was very interesting and thought-provoking and unique. However, I usually am not really into stories like this. I think I found it to be too "weird" for my tastes. However, I would recommend this to people who do like this genre.
