Tomorrow starts week four of our five week read-through of 84K.

We're reading from roughly p. 300 to p. 400 or from 60%-80%.

Feel free to discuss the past weeks without spoilers. No spoilers for the last 20% of the book.

What did you think of last weeks section?

Where do you think the story is going?

What do you think of the characters?

What do you think about North's world building?

What do you think of the prose?

Discuss.

Starting this now.

I like the world building to an extent, Depressing though it may be.
The rangers and the screamers annoy me on one level of being realistically unfeasable for a long term survival, but maybe that's the point, their world falls apart, so do they and as they care out more people fall into the same cycle of despair

Hmmm.

I've finished up to pg 400.

I'm not entirely sure what to think at the moment
Was it a clever plan! Sure it was quite near how it worked out.
The fallout from it wonderful, but I feel that there wasn't enough upheaval. It should have been basically civil war. Maybe that is to come. Maybe not.

I did like Theo's admission to Bea

I've only 50 pages left, and an hour to kill so I'd say I'll just finish the book out, spoiler tag my thoughts and then copy them over to week 5
