Here are three more images created from Kindle readers' most highlighted passages of King’s X.
This one strikes me a little differently each time. The idea is that, no matter what your opinion on religion, it is not piety itself that makes a person good or evil (nor is it your gender, by the way). Like virtually everything else in King’s X, “good" and “bad" is a matter of your own point of view and your ability to to see beyond it, to the point of view of someone else.
The photograph used here is difficult to even look at. I’m glad the treatment here kind of obscured it, even if only slightly. The picture is real and truly horrifying. The line in the book is spoken by Molly, as she tries to explain the mind of a german soldier during world war 2. The man she describes had undergone a forced and very sudden spiritual awakening while diligently going about his daily routine… overloading train cars with people bound for the Treblinka death camp.
Part of the subtext here, of course, is that if fear is strong enough to cloud the human mind to that extent, imagine what it may be doing to you and me who do not face such choices every day. How closely are we paying attention?
Here, Vincent Broussard explains the hidden nature of things to his less savvy brother Sebastien. They watch. They know. They rule. Perhaps they always have.
It may be too much for Sebastien to absorb in one lifetime. But he’s starting to catch on. One day, he will fully understand what his brother really means by all this.
