Part 2; Pgs. 115-120

This section appears to be a dramatic change in format, with the next several pages consisting of boldly headlined titles.  It seems still to be covering a single narrative thread, though. I found it difficult to follow in this part, partly because it is difficult to follow, and partly because I was distracted by (a.) dwelling on the fact that religion and belief in God is treated as a major theme in i. this book and ii. people's lives, and (b.) my belief that the far more important question is 'what is the story of my life?', under which all other questions, including the question of the existence of a god or gods, fall.

I found myself wondering how to write a book that was about a character trying to figure out the story of his own life.  It would be difficult mainly because the character would have to be consistently wrong, because every book presumes the story of its characters' lives, because it is a story.  And because we learn from stories, we're never modeled the experience of struggling to find one's story.

I'm sure there are books about that, but for the most part it's about 'finding yourself,' which I don't think is the same thing.  'Finding yourself' is already a story, and it doesn't help to live one story as a means of finding another, unless you already know what story you hope to end up reaching.
