I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
Binge reading this series is getting me through this shitty week. I actually e-mailed the author saying, so much stress, then lost my grandfather, and this series is helping.
He said sorry for your loss, but glad these books are helping.
I'm totally into Jedao in a my brain lusts after him kind of the way. Like in a 'I wish he was metal not meat' kind of way.
He's completely fucked up in all the ways I like, broken in a way that makes me want to fix him. I know this is a horrible tendency of mine, but I'm indulgent in fictional worlds and with fictional characters so I can be more like 'it's not my job to fix the world' in the real world.
Do I understand half of what's going on? Nope. Do I give a single fuck? Nope. The things that are there are just speaking to me. As of now, this will be my number one choice for the Hugos.
