Isaac, Nathan and I were at the meeting. It was a cozy and comfortable discussion. There isn’t much to write about the book because we didn’t like it much: thought that the plot is implausible; the characterization of characters, weak and full of stereotypes; the protagonist is narcissistic and egoistic; and the general moral of the book is uncritical.
However, Nathan seemed to have a soft spot for the trilogy. Perhaps because it speaks to him. 🙂
