what did you learn from the book

I didn't know that the story had many allusions to the Bible. Though no character is explicitly modeled on Christ or other biblical characters, and while only loose biblical metaphors are employed in the book, the book can be said to deployan overarching framework of Christian morality, especially in the way that it represents the dominance of light over dark. Several passages in the book refer to the Bible such as the music on Uriel which praises creation and is translated as words from the Book of Isaiah and when a verse from the Gospel of John ("the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it") is used to assert the defeat of evil.
