Another book that’s often read at a younger age in school, but this was my first time through. Overall, it was an interesting mix of fantasy and science fiction with religious undertones. Good vs. evil. Lightness vs. darkness if you’re into that sort of thing.
I personally think it’s important to acknowledge the existence of evil in the world and make an effort to fight against it with everything you’ve got. I really don’t know if evil is the default human setting or if it comes from an external influence (like IT), maybe it’s both, but it needs to be kept in check either way.
“Do you think things always have an explanation?”
“Yes. I believe that they do. But I think that with our human limitations we’re not always able to understand the explanations. But you see, Meg, just because we don’t understand doesn’t mean that the explanation doesn’t exist.”
