I'm up to chapter 14 (page 80) and so far it's still mostly backstory. I hope we get some new stuff soon.

These one sentence paragraphs are beginning to annoy me.

F-2 was okay, but did not achieve the brilliance of F-1. Too much backstory, not enough meat to the plotline in my opinion. But most people really like it.

I started it yesterday but I'm reading VERY slow because I've gone A.D.D. Hopefully later today I'll do better.


SPOILERS THRU CHAPTER 8:

***************************************




I love the conflict of how Erica is fascinated with literature and Victor keeps trying to keep her from it. I don't like that man! Sounds like he has problems programing her even with each new model. Once again I'm caught off guard by a simple line...that last line in chapter 8 about Williams in the corner kneeling.

Now Victor is replacing people. I didn't see that one coming.

I love C.S. Lewis so I enjoy the quotes. He's one of my favorite authors.
I'm inclined to believe in parallel worlds filled with dark bound Snow and Odd adventures.

Oh, I finally just looked up the word excrescences. I didn't know what that word meant and I'm a nurse.

Spoilers thru Chapter 6:

***********************************


Almost laughed outloud when Victor stated about Erika, "Her humiliation completed him." He's certainly no Jerry Maquire. I think I'm fixated on hating him.

I thought this quote from Deucalion's POV was neat since Deucalion is considered the "Noah of Greek mythology" and they reference Zeus's Deluge in the stories when Zeus flooded the world in anger for being given a human sacrifice.

"Victor's assault on nature and humanity had built into a perfect storm. And now the deluge."

Laughed at Jelly Biggs searching for a "good" detective book and all the criteria listed that he didn't want in a book.

"Give me a villian I'm not suppose to feel sorry for."

"If he kills good people, I want some good people to get together and pound the crap out of him. I don't want them to see that he gets therapy."

I had to look up lubricious.

I thought Jelly Biggs and the book thing was funny too, I love the name.
