I very much agree with both of you. That panel and the whole story was
great. The more moving was to see our prefered senseless brute (whom we
have learned to like along the time) feel what was really important about
books and, for once, disregard a fray compared to the fate of the burning

to see that, finally one way or the other, some sense entered Groo's
mind... ;)
