the book is a fascinating experience full of mystery, emotion, memorable scenes, and real world relevance. the book is a disappointing experience that has somehow lost the magic of its predecessor, let alone the original trilogy. \_(ツ)_/

Jack Vance
“Notice this rent in my garment; I am at a loss to explain its presence! I am even more puzzled by the existence of the universe.”
Jack Vance, Tales of the Dying Earth

Philip Pullman
“I'm for open-mindedness and tolerance. I'm against any form of fanaticism, fundamentalism or zealotry, and this certainty of 'We have the truth.' The truth is far too large and complex. Nobody has the truth.”
Philip Pullman

“A man is whole only when he takes into account his shadow.”
Djuna Barnes

Anton Szandor LaVey
“It’s too bad that stupidity isn’t painful.”
Anton LaVey
