As long as you don’t expect an exciting ride of political machinations akin to House of Cards, you’ll likely enjoy this novel for its profound look at how the inherently ambivalent nature of power drags even the best and most meek of us to do evil in hopes of achieving good.
|Profound, interesting characters||Constant digressions, while thematically relevant, slow the pace to a crawl|
|Thought-provoking on politics and the nature of power||Not particularly exciting plot-wise|
|Thought-provoking on the nature of men, our society, and life in general|
