I'm finding TWA to be... painful. In fact, so painful that I'm listening to it for a little while, then listening to the next book, going back to TWA for a bit, and then going on to the next book after that (I'm in the middle of Cetaganda).

Not really. The section of a book that I shy away from reading is when
Mark is pretending to be Miles in order to rescue the clones. I'm not
sure if I want to look too deeply into the psychology of that ... I
have this fear that's it's actually related to the "lost my Grownup
Card" thread ... that it hits too close to home because I sometimes
feel I am passing myself off as something I'm not (namely a Grownup
full of Responsibility who Knows What's What).
