Doesn’t seem all that out-of-character for Ethan, actually. He cares about his friends, and would do anything for them. Galasso’s kidnapping and the subsequent CPR sales were just an attempt to keep his friends employed. Not really that odd for him, IMHO.
plus the fact that he is a HUGE hypocrite
He never seemed to me like a character who was very deliberate in his life choices. He just sort of drifted – he drifted into his job at Shortpacked!, he drifted into discovering his sexual orientation, he drifted in and out of relationships. This is another example of him going with the flow – going along with Robin locking Galasso up and putting him in charge.
Ethan finally beginning to steer his own destiny rather than watching where it would take him was essential to his character development. From here in the future, his story is finished because he finally learned how to make his own choices rather than just being buffetted about by external forces.
this is why stores should never have drama tags.
I think their current problem is that they DON’T have a drama tag present.
At least retail stores anyway.
I know it’s obvious as hell, but the Watchmen reference in here is awesome.
hehehe nice reference to tales of the black freighter
Meh, I still don’t think Ethan’s in the wrong. I mean, for one thing, it wasn’t his idea to put Galasso in the cage, and (as far as I remember) he objected to it initially. Plus, he didn’t try to take power–Robin nominated him, and the others went along with it. And though Ethan’s policies may not have been that different from Galasso’s, his motivations were different. Galasso wanted to make as much money as possible and, eh, “build an empire,” while Ethan just wants to keep everyone employed.
That’s my two cents, anyway.
I’d love it if this book actually ends up being called Voyage of the Black Repaint.
