I started reading this book back in February. I went pretty fast at the start and bookmarked many pages which I should return to revisit. I stopped at around 3rd quarter knowing how the story would end. I was wrong as the ending was well written as it talked about the modern world of our time.
I finally finished the whole book during my trip to Wuxi this week. I'm sure I'll have to read this again in due course.
I'm moving on to "A History of God" by Karen Armstrong. It's about 4,000 year quest of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. I see this as a study on Western Culture for me rather than a book on Christianity or theology.
