I don't think I read far enough into this to actually get anything, because this is one of those books where they just throw you right into it, and you have to think for a little bit about what it's talking about and then you'll understand it. I just didn't really get it.
In the beginning, you know when Fax, F'lar—I always say flare when I'm reading it, but I know it's F'lar—Fax, F'lar, and F'nor, you know when they're all talking, and after they say one sentence, it's like, "Oh, he directed this insult at him. Oh, he said it like this." That was kind of annoying to me to get past. If they said it once, "they said it insultingly," then OK, I get it. But they kept mentioning it throughout the whole dialog. "Oh, he said it like this, which was so insulting. Oh, he said it like that, which was so OhMyGosh."
It was annoying, in a way.
Yeah, I'm not sure if this was her first book overall, but it was definitely her first book in this whole series that lasted thirty years. So we could cut her some slack, maybe.
I gave it to you last week!
