That is what it is! The dialogue in the book is what makes it so enthralling. I'm going to have to re-read this one.

Jason I'm finding the re-read to be more rewarding than any other re-read I've done in the past. One doesn't get a real sense of the care of its architecture, or the meaning of its conversations, until one knows how it all ends (which one does when one re-reads it). I'm more convinced than ever of its brilliance.

Awesome. I look forward to giving it a second look, especially since it was such a quick read in the first place.
