    hehe fun review. I’m curious about the tone of this book – do you get the idea that the narrator thinks Rovar’s determinedly defeatist attitude is strange?

    Ahh I felt the WEIRD article here. Does the book then suggest that rather than being fated people are changed by others? Or is that just part of how things were pre-determined?
