Officially a third of the way through the read-a-thon. Jefferson has been taking a lengthy break, and I made not much progress, as the last update took longer than I expected. Darkness at Noon remains haunting and brilliant. In the last hour there was a section where a member of the communist regime recounts how he came to his methods of torture. It rather chillingly reminded me of the torture in Guantanamo Diary. The more things change, the more they stay the same?
