That's also funny, 'cause I certainly see *some* things in more or less "good and evil" terms (the fear that someone will link me w/well-known public figures who use those terms overmuch and inappropriately notwithstanding), and think sometimes I do indeed know w/reasonable certainty, that my side is right, and nothing about Blood and Iron made me particularly defensive. Not saying I agreed w/all the philosophy expressed, but . . . ::shrugs:: .
I do want to reread the last 60 pages or so before commenting further, cause by that point I was determined to finish and find out what happened, and there was a lot that really needed thinking over rather than hurrying through.
(Oh, and it will be a positive review; I was gonna not say this and hopefully leave you wondering for a couple of days, assuming I get to it faster than my House of Chains review I talked about doing a month ago, but my conscious got the better of my sense of mischief, dammit.)
