Jason rewrote that paragraph largely based on my feedback. This is a rather personal reaction of his. I DO think a number of readers will agree with him, but most readers shouldn't go in expecting something enormous from Olver because you might get to the end without having that kind of reaction from any Olver scene.

I value my own emotional reaction to a book very highly, so I respect that in Jason's review. However, emotional reaction is very subjective. Do not pin too many expectations on that paragraph.
