If you can answer these questions satisfactorily, your stocktaking as regards the fruit of your traffic with that book may be reckoned satisfactory. If you cannot answer them satisfactorily, then either you chose the book badly or your impression ...

It showed that some project was under way, which, at least in its present stage, the Machiavellian young lady did not wish to disclose.
