It’s crazy to me how many people in this subreddit go absolutely gaga for this book. To me, it was perfectly fine, but utterly forgettable. Just a silly little story about a guy and a silly little spider creature. But every week someone posts about how it was a life-changing book.

Your point about the world not making sense resonates and is something I'm constantly saying to myself as I read, followed by, "Surely there will be an explanation for this affront to common sense." There's still plenty of time for there to be some great reveal at the end where all the professors are like "of course it was outrageous. We were testing you."
