These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.

Decon-Recon Switch: At several points in the book, the author points out how ridiculous love is, how contradictory forgiveness seems, and how foolish courage appears to be, but he always turns right around and says that even so, they are powerful forces and often even necessary to the world. Indeed, these three ideals are what end up saving the day in the end.
