OH MY GOD, okay, so 95% of the characters are hilariously one-dimensional and I only cared if they died because Dickens wanted me to care (I could feel the wanting! Down through time!), but the frenzy books like these whip me into are why I'm a history major, why I've got seventeen tabs relating to the French Revolution open in my browser right now (I am really not sure how I feel about Chrome, Tippy, but I will give it a chance), and why, even though I'm annoyed about the test I have in ten hours, that stuff written by and about people who died hundreds of years ago is still really fucking relevant and amazing and fantastic. *flaps hands about* Yes, I'm the girl who sits in the front row and jitters annoyingly with excitement when the prof's talking about something you think is dull. History! ♥

Also, I really dig resurrection/sacrificial redemption metaphors, what can I say?
