On the other hand, there's always _Mirror of Her Dreams_ and _A Man Rides
Through_ which are so bloody irritating because the heroine won't do
anything not because she doesn't believe the world is real, but because
she doesn't believe she is 'real' and can't believe she could have an
effect on the world. (Among the few books I liked and wanted to throw
against the wall at the same time.)

yourself. That's what sin is." -- Terry Pratchett, _Carpe Jugulum_
