Waiting for the end of the series before rating.

There was a lot of space. There was a forest. There was so much silence. The quiet felt like a huge new country that he could wander around inside for years without ever meeting its coastlines. A silence the size of the sky.

Those sidebars...

This fascinating story continues, with excellent sidebars about your body, the deep nature of money and the modern persons relationship to technology, data and predictive science. I love every word of it.

It gets even more weird and all the entire idea of Abyss gaze makes its point.

Here we go

Now we're getting to the meat of the story. Once again, very funny and engaging satire, excellent pacing, and great set up for the fourth and final part of the series. Very much looking forward to part 4 of Normal.

A lot of the madness starts to made more sense here, which is probably scarier than the madness was
