unqualified statements

And tonight I really had a few things that I should have been doing. But instead I finished reading You Shall Know Our Velocity. I feel like I should write something about how I liked it and why. I guess maybe I need to think about it a little.

The thing about reading is that you can physically feel the approach of the story's ending. With a fixed number of pages, even without knowing how it will end, that it will end and soon is evident. I guess I sort of like that. The anticipation and sensing the loops closing, and recognizing that some will be left open. When the ending is partially on the cover there are fewer surprises.
