Twelve Months of Reading
I gave this book 3 stars.
More good politically loaded lessons "speech without thought is dangerous." "when one loses his head he loses his brains."
I really liked the storyline of them coming across a man made up of the pieces from the Tin Woodman and Tin Soldier especially since it created one of the deepest philosophical discussions in the entire book series: what does it mean to "be someone." As the assembled man says "...it is absurd for you tin creatures, or for anyone else, to claim my head, or arm, or any part of me, for they are my personal property." "You? You're a Nobody!" Deep.
