discworld angels from most-suspicious

(no subject)

Finished Point of Dreams, am going through Point of Hopes. I read them in that order the first time, eight years ago, and recall being disappointed in the latter after the former. Which proves only that I'm not a subtle reader. I still prefer Dreams for its urban setting and theatre focus, and its quite overt m/m, and the density of its background-- background which IIRC isn't really explained by the scene-setting of Hopes. In that way it reminds me of a RPG-- not that I've ever played any RPGs-- in the sense of there being side stories you can follow and back stories you can go into and a bunch of stuff that's all extraneous to the main story/ quest but still there if you want it.
