I'm on my third read through with this series and I keep picking up more every time I go through it. I think I've got most of the mysteries figured out. (Who Agia is, Who Dorcas is, Who the green man is, etc.). I'm still wracking my brain over Triskele though. Right now i'm inclined to think that Triskele is simply Severian's "totem". In other words, he's a constant symbol and serves as a stable reminder/invoker of Severian's true identity. Anyone got any insights into Triskele.

Also, am I the only one who thinks this is the greatest work of the later half of the 20th century? The only other book that seems to come close is McCarthy's Blood Meridian.

Well, yeah, I thought it was pretty damn boring when I read it, sorry to say.

You're a boring person. I bet you think people who add sugar and cream don't like coffee.

Probably not, but you are likely in the minority with that opinion.

I add one spoonful of sugar but no cream. I feel like the sugar contrasts the flavor of the coffee and really brings it out.

Do I like coffee?

Please explain your weird semantics. Can a movie be boring? Can a conversation be boring? Or do you think boring isn't a real thing? The word means "not interesting" so, if a book is not interesting, would it not be boring?

You're just stupid, sorry to say. It's a great book, most people won't argue with that.
