Creation of characters is unusual. At the beginning they are like simple sketches( only most characteristic traits), but then as plot progresses they are filled with motives and then suddenly we have the real people (hope you know what I mean)
I also like how blankly honest is Kundera when he asks whether the authors could only write about themselves and says that his characters are the versions of himself that crossed the line he never crossed. Interesting idea.

I'm listening to an audio book on youtube. This will be my 3rd go round The implications are so far ranging and complex while simultaneously encompassing that it leaves my imagination stunned with all the possibilities to consider (hence 3rd). It's quite the paradigm shift to my worldview in many regards.
"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age. " - H.P. Lovecraft

Stalled out on Boswell's Life of Johnson around page 120 in my edition...a couple of months ago.
Reading Marcel Proust In Search of Lost Time (Vol. 1, Swann's Way) in translation...never gonna make it before it's due at the library again.
Also reading (and will finish easily) QB VII by Leon Uris.
Trying to track down Patrick Rothfuss' The Name of The Wind, and the Pern science fiction novels (would like to read them in order, the first ones are not at the library, I may have to try Half Price Books...)

Dark Places by Gillian Flynn. I was a bit nervous to read this one because of how much I enjoyed Gone Girl, but so far it has been alright. It is a book though that is going to take me a while to read, because I keep getting sucked into what the author is trying to say and how shes says it that causes me to detatch from the book and forget to move forward. I think only the best sort of authors are able to do that though.
