KPG: <<<The ``The First Immortal'' reminded me somewhat of various Heinlein
due to the preacherous approach, which I have an allergic reaction to.
It set off my big, red ``CONDITION RED:MEME INFECTION ATTEMPT'' warning signal
so it hardly made any impact in my meme pool.>>>
Yeah, I find books that are too obvious about their "messages" to be actually
insulting to my intelligence. I actually laughed out loud at Ayn Rand,
clumping long-ass lectures into a so-called plot, then using her "characters"
like baseball bat to drum her "ideas" into people's heads. It seemed so
obvious and dumb!
