The ship of Theseus is a pretty applicable bit of philosophy. Here’s a thought: are you the same reader you were 20 years ago?
On the second reading, a decade after the first, I finally got this book.
And sometimes some books make you think “I’d rather be reading something else.”
How we come to categorize books like this is sometimes more interesting than the books themselves.
A so called twist ending is never a very good reason to consume anything.
