I think the reason WT appealed to me was the strange, inexorable *logic* of
the thing.  They didn't set out to do anything more than somehow pay for a
breakage, and each step was entirely reasonable given the one before it,
and somehow without knowing quite how they got there they ended up in a
life-and-death struggle, or rather a good-versus-evil confrontation.

It felt very orderly, in a completely disorganised way.

Regarding the 8-year-old at one's side being useful -- that depends on the
8-year-old!  :-)
