I gave up on The Great Passage as well as Wayfarers. Decided this year that if I’m not enjoying, I can give up, and move on to something else. Placing it in my life is to short, not for me category. Read several chapters of ebook Great Passage and it felt like an eternity and when checked how much had finished, expecting to see 75% and only saw 35%, decided enough was enough.

Though there has been ample research in the area, no one has ever succeeded in turning a Powered into a regular human, let alone a Super.
That is, until now…”
