Yes, the snake scene was really well-written and vivid!

What did you think about Dr. Swenson’s surgery happening off-page? On the one hand, I don’t think another surgery scene was necessary, but on the other, surely it was a massive emotional moment for Marina—the coming together of multiple threads? I felt like there was a big build-up to it, but we never got to see its emotional impact on Marina, because the aftermath was immediately replaced by the whole Anders situation.
