These protagonists are profoundly overmatched by the challenge they face, naÃ¯ve about their prospects. By the storyâ€™s end, multiple cities are destroyed, countries wiped off the map, and the BPRD are excited about a budget increase. Theyâ€™re losing and donâ€™t even see it. The accumulating doom and cognitive dissonance are so compelling.
