    Masterful Use of First-Person Narrative

    I've used the opening of this darkly prophetic novel--told from the POV of a social terrorist interested only in exploring the depths of human evil like Dostoevsky's Raskolnikov in Crime and Punishment--in countless workshops and seminars to illustrate that your protagonist's 'sympathetic' nature doesn't mean we LIKE him. 'Sympathetic' in its Greek root suggests that we can 'relate to,' or 'suffer with,' a character and from the haunting opening lines that's exactly what causes us to turn the pages--a mixture of horror and our own voyeuristic tendencies.
