Jeah, Cain novels are in a weird spot for me. I enjoy the fuck out of them because it makes the world of WH40K suddenly feel like a real world, still grim, but this time with human glances in in it, with logical decisions and I love the plays with tropes. On the other hand, some of the writing style things make me insane, like the footnotes repeating for the 18. time that kloms are kilometers, that he's from an unidentified Hive World, and that Jurgen stinks. "Of course, if I only knew how much trouble that would mean, I wouldnt have done it" x 10
I'm slightly rambling, but I hope you get my point.
