The thing that always got me is that _Jhereg_ seemed more Yendi'ish
that _Yendi_. 

I'm not a big _Athyra_, _Phoenix_ fan.  But that means I've only read
them ten times, not twenty and still re-read them occasionally as opposed
to braving the library/second hand store stacks.

I think it would be pretty hard to lose sleep over a condemnation like
that.  :)
