It's FINISHED. I guess I still don't really know what to make of it, and nothing was really tied together for me in the end, which I was secretly hoping for but didn't expect. My enjoyment and understanding of the book was very parabola-like: I slogged miserably through the first and last readings, but really enjoyed the middle sections.
One thing that did really bother me was the Gottfreid being launched in the rocket scenes- I had no idea what to make of this, what Gottfried might symbolize in his Impoplex G shroud, etc.
Did anyone have any thoughts on this? I was *SO* confused, but really excited to be done with this very challenging novel.
