|Just a man...and his Kindle (and his|
Dairy Queen) on a Sunday afternoon.
Although he's enjoying the book BIG time, this little situation (snicker) has done nothing to soften Tom's feelings about Claire! Listen to what he said:
"Claire has the inability to see anybody else's opinion or understand their side of the argument because she knows, in her head, and in her heart, that she's right about everything. She's so self-centered and arrogant. She just can't imagine her being wrong. She just can't imagine somebody else having an opinion that would explain the situation, because in her head, she's right...all the time. Claire is never at fault. She has started problems...she's gotten men killed...she got that ship burned down...and never, ever once did she ever sit down and assess blame to herself. It's always someone else's fault."
It's just so awesome to discuss different aspects of the series with new readers. I fear Tom may never soften toward Claire...but there will be plenty of entertaining discussion along the way!
