I'm a little over 2/3 into TJE now and I don't know if I really can agree with Pat's assessment of the book's strengths. If anything, it's a deeper examination of human foibles regarding certainty, but that's not a knock against the book, only a note that Pat's comments about the book being &quot;accessible&quot; might be misleading to those who were/are hoping for continued philosophic probing. But he is correct in noting that the nature of it has shifted, just as the pattern from TDTCB through TTT in regards to how Kellhus is viewed as shifted (not that I'm hinting too much, am I? <!-- s:P --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_razz.gif" alt=":P" title="Razz" /><!-- s:P -->)

More later, perhaps, but I'm strongly considering waiting until January before I write an extensive review. Suffice to say that page 272, I think this book is easily the equal to the first three and likely better in terms of writing and it certainly is better in regards to certain characterizations. view post
