] Its a bit early to tell, don't you think? He is certainly very mild-mannered and indescisive, especially in regard to Val. But when it comes to his discovery, he is driven by excitement to act impulsively, and adventurously.
What can Roland do about Val? Leaving her would mean rendering himself homeless during a recession. And he feels both grateful to her and responsible for her. After all, their involvement meant that Val sacrifed her academic career. He didn't mean for this to happen but it was still the outcome.
I'm writing something on Val, I'll post it in a couple of days because this read through she's the cahracter who jumps out at me.
