(Okay, so the first 98 pages were the story itself. And yet.)
Thoughts: Most people said forgiveness wasn't Simon's place, so it was good/right that he did not offer any. I'm surprised that as of the 1998 reprinting, there's only two Buddhist responses and one atheist - and no Muslim, Hindu, or other major religious leaders responding. I find that a sore lack, especially given that many, many responses reiterated the same thoughts/points - expanding beyond the Jewish and Christian/Catholic communities might have provided more insights.
Full list of goals here.
As an aside, I have lost my notebook where I keep track of my read books. Very unhappy about this, as I haven't done an update recently and I am worried if I can't find it again, I may forget some books. Mrr.
