WHAT IS THE SHELTERING TOWER REALLY ABOUT? Some believe it’s a spy story. Others think it’s about a mother-son relationship and the search for a positive father-figure. The story incorporates these elements, but I think the main theme of the book is free will. Is free will a myth? Something concocted out of pride? Are we merely following a script bequeathed to us by our parents or others? And are we very much different from strangers who have similair geneic codes and life experiences? What do you think?
