Speculiction did a second review/addendum/piece on TUC!

Oh, I wonder who privately contacted him about this ... hmm

Great review and summary. I like the baselines - this guy gets it.
One of the other conditions of possibility.

And the jurys still out about Proyas. He may come to bear in the next series, but Im mildly doubtful at this point. Some of that doubtfulness revolves around the fact that Im not entirely sure that hes even still alive.

Faith is the truth of passion. Since no passion is more true than another, faith is the truth of nothing.

Elitist Book Reviews!

I found this review poorly written - interesting he points out something he calls "writing getting in the way ... " ... his review is guilty of same, 70% was explanation on how/why he writes a review and scant on anything beyond adjectives and adverbs for the rest of it. The previous reviews you've shared on this thread were much more impressive.

Turns out Bakker fans are not elitists after all :P
The thoughts of all men arise from the darkness. If you are the movement of your soul, and the cause of that movement precedes you, then how could you ever call your thoughts your own? How could you be anything other than a slave to the darkness that comes before?

The EBR people were burned by TAE, Tao. You have to go back and read their PON reviews. They loved the series and saw a lot of promise in TJE and ultimately were hugely disappointed in succession by WLW/TGO. The fact that they even reviewed TUC without my prodding is impressive as they weren't even going to read TGO after WLW.
