really liked it

I want to know why, when Andieta inevitably heard that his effeminate little brother was looking for him, did we not get to know what his thoughts were. Did he misunderstand? Did he fear? Did he want just a little more time? Was he going through a conflict between what his Utopia should be and the reality of a land without police?

Other than that, I am grateful for the view of the California Gold Rush that I never would have guessed. It's place in history is of much more a world view significance than I expected. It is also far more interesting than I expected. I love the idea of one remaking themselves. The characters were ripe. I love who Eliza became...and Tao.
