His abilities and experiences from the Deathworld don’t seem to contribute to his character here, and fo Storyline: The novel is filled with human and moral complexity, such as how we should honor the dead, what to do with valuable information that can cause chaos, the importance of rememb How have I not known of this masterpiece until now? Psychological, philosophical, and ecological themes well worth to think about. A trickier book than it first appears.
He’s brilliantly over-the-top extreme and so utterly fixed in his principles that he lands Jason – and himself – in deep trouble. Stream audiobook and download chapters.
