A massive plot hole to me was the between. They never explained the between.
Yeah, they never did.
I felt like they just made it up because they wanted something to guide the story along.
The between is nothing. In one of the other books they go on with that.
I thought that that was such a cool way to end it and tie it all together, that solution that they found. I thought that was unique. I didn't see it coming at all, that they'd go back and bring the Weyrs forward.
I did not know that the book would go back in time.
I did like that too, how she mentioned things in the beginning of the book and how it affected things later in the end. Like, the between time thing? I knew that was coming, I knew they would go to the south continent.
But the going back four hundred years thing is what you don't predict. I'm kinda wondering how that cycle started. If you think about it, it has to start somewhere. It makes sense that she goes back in time because they're not there, but it's a circle.
It's a paradox.
It can't happen!
It doesn't matter!
They should have been there, they should have had no need to go back. That's why I'm like, "Oh, wow, that hurts."
Well, I think why they went back—yes, it is a paradox—but one of the main things, I guess the reason why they did that, is that over the four hundred years, since there are so many doubts, maybe all five Weyrs would have diminished. So bringing forward four Weyrs all trained in fighting the Thread would help with this current Pass.
