And I'm back here for a bit.  
The ending of Juniper, Gentian, and Rosemary let me know how much I don't want to ever let some small, petty thing or person get me to forget who I am and who and what I truly care about. Pamela Dean built up those emotions well. She slowly shows you Genny's life and her interactions with Becky and the other Giant Ants and her family and Murr and what she /looses/ by loosing her identity. The daily interactions that I saw throughout the book were so enjoyable to read and reminded me of conversations I'd had with people that I know so that the thought of forgetting all of my friends and all of my delights (as Gentian has her astronomy I have things I hold dear) to work on a manipulative project. was horrifying. Dominic has my loathing.

I saw truth there. I don't suppose the exact situation of Dominic and his time machine could happen but that takeover is quite possible in anyone's life if we're not careful and if we don't know who and what we love and what sort of person we are.
