I have to agree with Chris. The book is far more dense than the first two combined. While totally different than the first two ''out of this world'' mythical stories that clearly portrayed good versus evil, this book's objective is to continue the ethical battle on our planet Earth.
Cohen says: ''this third volume does not provoke thought nearly as much as its predecessors did,'' but the third novel is the most thought-provoking because it is set in our world. This creates thought of the possibility of a similar situation, or even if one or many already exist. The comparison of this fictitious and corrupted world to our own is beneficial, especially when considering which side one would take, or even what side one is already on...
I would also suggest rereading this book or possibly reading some of its positive literary criticism to gain some alternative views.
