Being a practiced liar doesn’t mean you have a powerful imagination. Many good liars have no imagination at all; it’s that which gives their lies such wide-eyed conviction.

In general, I don’t like movies about children. What I learned reading this book is that I may not actually like books about children either. This bodes ill for the rest of the series.

(This was a problem with my response to Carson McCullers’s fiction as well, but one that I got past because of the narration.)
