Jeremy "This book is like a net set for unsuspecting minds. It breaches their defenses with a twisted logic, attempting to preclude any conclusions but the ones it sets forth."

The only thing that attempts to preclude conclusions, is this post you've written.

Jeremy Check mate.

Nikola "Of course, it follows a natural flow from the author's assumptions: power, will, and self-determinism are the foundations of all life."

Those are not at all the author's assumptions. Power? Are you serious? Where in the book do you see the protagonist seeking power? The antagonist does that.

And where do you see the author setting the foundations for "all life"? The author is speaking only of the *human* life and sees that life as the standard of valuing of all other things. At best, you've completely missed what this novel is all about.

Chris The worst second-hander is one who seeks power.

Brett Could never be done as a graphic novel: the irony is we will never see the art or architecture the author considers superior, we are supposed to take her word for it - how authoritarian is that?
