L'esperienza religiosa giapponese over the boundary Perhaps this is because he is at heart such a likeable character Zindell somehow manages to create a character who is both an exemplarf human excellence in all he does without losing his fundamental human vulnerability as well as being imbued with an earnest morality and devotion to pacifism that don t have him devolve into an annoying Pollyanna as was the case for me at least with Gene Wolfe s unfortunate character Patera Silk Ah Bardo It s always great to see you even if I d probably want to punch you in the face if we ever met in reality I m still a little dubious about how the story f Old Father the alien Fravashi character who first mentors Danlo when he comes to Neverness concludes but to discuss this further would be a spoiler and we ll see if I feel any differently when I actually get there n a re read Bad Land of the subseuent volumes Zindell is uite good at expressing character through the uniue speech patternsf his characters esp Danlo Bardo and Old Father as long as you don t find these verbal ticks to be annoyingthey worked for me Hanuman li Tosh is an intriguing character both Danlo s greatest fr.
