Not sheepish, but individ-ewe-al

You heard all my thoughts already, but for everyone else: I was really *interested* in Too Like the Lightning, I had a lot more to say about it than the other hugo books (and All the Birds and Ninefox were REALLY GOOD); but I was also completely exasperated and didn't finish it, and given how you described the rest, am glad I didn't.
I feel it's trying to do *something* philosophical or clever or something, and I'm probably missing something, but what actually happened didn't make it seem optimistic I'm going to "get it" at some point.
I really liked the exploration of "what miracles can this boy do, what do we DO about that, what are the theological implications", I'm sad that just seemed to fade out.
I think I have Dzur in my collection, you're welcome to it if you want a print not electronic version. I have not enjoyed the last few as novels as much as I did when started the series, but I'm still really excited by the series as a whole.
