One of the main attractions for me where Trek is concerned is that it takes the better over the more cynical path. While that does indeed eventually happen here, people like Ishan infuriate me. I see enough of these gits and their actions in real life and such individuals frequently get away with all of it. Suppose that's one neat difference between Trek and reality.
Well, fair enough. But I suppose what I liked about The Fall
Yeah, quite. What's making this a little more complicated than I expected is I've split comments on the series across all 5 book review threads! I quite liked the sheer extent Ishan goes to to cover up his past and acts, that was different - AND he still lost! Yay.
That the whole series takes place over such a comparatively short period of time also works in its favour. Yes, there's Ishan engaging in all kinds of dubious activity at best, but it is going to be of limited scope.
