Let’s just say I’m glad I bought it used.
I wasn’t massively disturbed by it this time (as I was as child), but overall it seemed to me a very experimental book, and not one that was very useful to me.
Yes, I’m that mercenary now. If a story doesn’t sweep me off my feet or model amazing *something* I’m on to the next pretty quick. More thoughts on the book are on my 2009 books page if you’re curious about that sort of thing.
