I finished reading the book Het Zwaard van
Radch, the Dutch translation of Ancillary Sword by Ann Lecki, which I start reading last Friday after I bought it on
last Thursday. By the fact that I finished the book
in such a short time, it is clear that the book did captivate me. But it was
also a lot because I wanted to know how the plot developed into something
dramatic. The middle part had a lot of relational type of contents and felt
kind like a detective. (Somehow the main character, Breq, made me think of
Vera Stanhopefrom the TV series Vera.) Then at the end there was suddenly some dramatic action. Know I
want to read the first book of the series.
This evening, I was playing with the round paper cover of an icecream, trying
to fold it into a triangle and I noticed that the three folded parts came
together at the same point. In a sense, did not surprise me, as I knew the
triangle has many so called centers. (There is even an encyclopedia of it.) However, I have not been able to found the given
center. Below an animation of folding the black circle into a red triangle and
the grey circles representing the folded parts crossing at the same point.
