After reading the first book, I was so surprised that this was so much shorter that I initially thought it was the abridged version. After listening to this for the fourth time in a row, I understand why now. There’s so much to unpack and process, understanding what all the different characters are doing and why. It’s almost as if as the spectator you need to look at the story as Paul would, from a non-temporal viewpoint of the events. I think it’s an interesting look at the concept of predetermination, and what would one do if you knew the future, but also knew how dramatically chaotic events could unfold if you were to deviate carelessly from that path. Love it, want to listen to it four more times.
