Reading these books reminds me of talking to my son, Dan, another philosopher. You start talking to him about one thing and then he kind of gets this blank stare as his mind goes on down many tangents until you are back to talking about "justice" or "ethics" again. I understand how Isabel's friends feel.

I enjoy these books; though they are gentle reads, they are not always easy reads. And Isabel is, as often before, caught several times in having to live up to her ethical high standards or find some way to justify not doing so.
