[quote="Cu'jara Cinmoi":2mj6oq58]As for figuring Kellhus out, I'm afraid that interpretative underdetermination combined with our natural inclination to cherry pick would make settling the question impossible. Thus, the spectre of narrative suspense...[/quote:2mj6oq58] I just finished my copy today. The poor Fanim still can't get a break, and to top it, they now have a Leto II Atreides or Genghis Khan grade psychopath to lord it over them. Oddly enough, the few people I developed sympathy for the book, apart from Achamian, of course, are: 1. the Inchoroi, stranded on an alien planet and immediately set upon by the genocidal Cû'jara-Cinmoi who tries to exterminate at first contact them for no better reason than their appearance. See the glossary entry for Cuno-Inchoroi Wars: "Repelled by the obscene aspect of the Inchoroi, Cû'jara-Cinmoi had them put to death". 2. Ikurei Conhas, who is dispatched in a truly undignified way by that buffoon Saubon. Unlike Kellhus, he had an inkling of the wages of pride when a mortal tangles with the Gods I am not looking forward to The Aspect Emperor either. view post
