... as is its sequel. Or was it a prequel? One never knows these days, especially with all the time travelling going on in DGHDA.


It is a sequel. I'll review that in time. I finished it a couple of days ago. I don't like that one as much as the DGHDA and I've been trying to figure out why.

BTW I also remember moments of me realising a gag or something alike only on my second read through the book or even days later. Usually resulting in a violent burst out of laughter.

And since my first computer in 1984 was an Apple IIe (Mac predecessor) I know what you mean by geekish nostalgia.

I have to do Dunsany and Byatt first, or Rebekah will hurt me. *NM* - 03/07/2010 09:12:46 AM 663 Views
Bah, of course you have to do the Byatt right when I'm not there. - 06/07/2010 05:03:21 PM 1188 Views

I have appropriated Mr Gently's holisitic approach to detective work as a study aid. *NM* - 06/07/2010 03:24:35 PM 655 Views
