Waaaaay too much Freud for me. And loooooove/sex/"sexy" stuff. I can do without that. But i am committed to this quincunx now, and need to see how he makes the lines all line up. It is also exciting to me, as a fan of the Alexandria Quartet, to see characters from that swim to the surface here and there.
