Well, he did it again. Making me sympathize with a character one sentence, forcing me to turn that sympathy to another character the next sentence. Making me switch this way a whole book long. Is this the major strength of the book? I think so. Although it is very impressive at a lot of passages, this story won't leave the kind of marks 'Legend of a suicide' did. Maybe this dirt must sink down a bit first... we'll see... I'll probably remember this book as an intriguing new view on philosophy and religion. Dirty, but fresh.
