I am the only person on earth who ever read that book.
One of the protagonists got warbles at one point. Another protag was bisected at the hips, and another one was a genetically engineered baleen whale with a mind control device implanted in her brainstem, and cybernetics.
I think about that book whenever I want to know if I'm fucking my protags over hard enough.
So far, I'm a piker.
Also, Daniel Silva is a bunch lot meaner to his protags than I am. Obviously, I need to do some damage around here.
