100.0% "I just finished the chapter "This Will Kill That." It is a fascinating telling of the history of knowledge. It is also a tool used by Hugo to develop characterization and conflict to further his plot. I admire the way Hugo uses his knowledge of history and philosophy to create characterizations based on ideas."
