Sins of the Maker


Worth reading 😎

Ultimately it is a story of love, hope, and finding your true self in the vast ocean that is humanity.

When I first opened The Dream Atlas, I was slightly taken aback by the sheer number of pages the book contained: 922 according to my iPad. As I read, those pages quickly flew by until I had reached the About the Author section.

While reading, especially at the beginning of the book, I found myself confused as to what was going on. At first. Each chapter jumps to a different character, seven in total. Each character had a completely different setting, different side characters, even different planets! There is so much lore and world-building in the first chapters I could barely keep up. That and the way it was written, which I would describe as modern Shakespearian. It reminded me a lot of the King James Bible, only watered down slightly. There were no ye or thee; no shall or shalt not. It fit with the story and enhanced the worlds I found myself in.

Once the first chapters had been conquered and I found myself revisiting the seven characters in their personal story, it became much easier to read. I was pulled in and did not want the stories to end. They are enthralling, and the world setting was intriguing. It mixed religion and politics in a way that they became the same. Plus, the concept of God being reincarnated into a baby girl was an amazing concept in itself, let alone that the entire universe was centered around her when she could barely move on her own (she was, after all, a baby).

This book is well worth the read. I enjoyed reading it, and I believe that it is meant to be enjoyed by everyone, but especially by those who may be questioning their place in the world. What Sins of the Maker attempts to do is explore the gaps and holes in our personal view of the world, and shows differences between ourselves in the characters of the story. Within the story lies a need to find oneself: all the characters have issues with those who "made" them, whether that be a mother, father, or deity. Ultimately it is a story of love and hope and finding your true self in the vast ocean that is humanity.

I love reading and books, I have all my life. Recently I decided to turn my passion and love in reading into a blog where I review books I am reading. I would use that same passion in working with Discovery.
