All of the books we have read in Mosaics 2 are connected to one central theme which is power. The theme of power was shown a couple different ways. In the book Cat's Cradle power was represented by religion using the Bokononism and the tradition of book-maru as the prime examples. In the book Snow Crash, power was brought up in the sense of freedom. A third way in which we saw power as an underlying theme throughout this course was in the book Utopia in which power was seen as a responsibility that a character had. Lastly, in Red Harvest power was shown as a character's actions.
