After reading that book, I now have a totally different feeling about the underground, esp 'mind the gap'!

I'm still working my way through Daughter of Fire by Barbara Erskine. It's a big book and my time's limited. I'm enjoying it loads but it is weird reading a novel about research techniques that are almost identical to your own!

I'm enjoying it, as long as I can forget that this is a romance between a 100-plus-year-old man and a teenage girl. And like others, I am getting a little tired of his good looks being mentioned every third paragraph.
