'Good,' as far as human beings are concerned, is unfixed, and yet, as human beings, we are still compelled to aspire to it. And as much as we try, our actions can still have negative consequences. But it's also difficult to separate what was our fault and what wasn't; if we're lucky enough to have figured it out, events will have happened already i.e. we can't take anything back. So that's why living is so hard. "The Abbess did not try to take this responsibility from him; but she could not, either, help him live with it." (Something else I think The Bell implies is that a fixed sense of what is good/evil is akin to selfishness, one of the most damaging of human qualities.) I think the almost objective tone of the novel kept the experience of reading it from being emotionally annihilating. Definitely a re-read, although I didn't love it as much as Under the Net.
Some of these smoothies sounded odd, but I did come away with a few recipes that I'm willing to try.
Not bad but very similar to Star Wars or Lord of The Rings which is sometimes very upsetting, but if you don't look back at it it good story.
