cass, can you not

Finished Anathem. Mood: Disappointed.

Without, I think, spoiling it, let's just say that the book begins ostensibly exploring a very interesting and quite unique premise, and ends up being all about a very different one. It was also an interesting one, I guess, but much less so, and was resolved in a way that I found shallow and unsatisfactory.

Meanwhile, many of the questions I was interested on based on the first two or three hundred pages of the book ended up being untouched or having bogus answers... It's as if one writer began the book, and another ended it.
