Love everyone’s perspectives about DIA. You’ve all already touched/discussed this, so I’m sorry for belabouring the point, but DIA is an interesting book in introducing one of the overarching themes of the series – whether one can change/control history and whether life is predestined. It shows up again later in the books with Roger’s internal reflection and debate about predestination (which I loooooove). He seems to be tool or a conduit for discussions about controlling one’s fate, etc.

This was the discussion I was wanting to have earlier. Although there are some interesting characters introduced to us in DiA – I feel a very important part of this book’s place in the series is the debate of predestination or the ability to change history.
