I finished [The Magnetist's Fifth Winter]. Although there were a few passages in which reading in the original language would likely have been a huge benefit, I thought this was a magnificent novel! Basically the story addresses the suggestibility of the human being to two forms of evil, that from without and that from within the self. The primary themes are: suggestibility, faith, betrayal, and evil.

The most powerful message of all to me was that by remaining silent or standing witness to evil without action, a person is still participating in that evil, and is partially responsible for the consequences. Words to live by. ( )

En algún lugar, el gran Paracelso habló del dolor que produce la inmovilidad total: se obligó a alguien a permanecer inmóvil sobre un lecho mullido durante un largo periodo de tiempo.
