So, two novels. One is filled with the ideology and politics I hate. And when I say hate, I mean really, really detest.
Another is written in response to the first, addresses the same issues, denounces and corrects the tragic historic injustice perpetuated by it.
Ideologically, I applaud the second novel and hate the first to the point where I keep throwing it against the wall. Literally.
However, the first novel is so well-written and so touching that I weep every time I read it. And I’ve read it five times.
The second novel, while very professionally done and the writer is obviously talented, failed to touch me to the point that I fell asleep 4 pages before its end.
