I'm a little weirded out by how similar Jacob in Olga Tokarczuk's BOOKS OF JACOB is to J.E.D.D. Mason in Ada Palmer's Terra Ignota books. It's pure coincidence that I'm reading BOOKS OF JACOB and PERHAPS THE STARS simultaneously - my turn with the public library's e-copy of the former just came up and the waiting list behind me was long, while I've been very slow with the latter because dead tree. Would I see the similarities otherwise, I wonder?
