Ahh, Ash and Julie. I you though Llewllyn and Eleanore smoked off the pages I dare say you "aint" seen nothing yet. Prepare to lose lots and lots of sleep.

This one is weird, though - there's a very heavy theme that is just hinted at so far (I'm about 2/3 through). It's written from the viewpoints of four different characters, and one uses an astoundingly annoying shorthand. No verbs. Very difficult to read. Like Bridget Jones on crack. Am gritting teeth and skimming.
Next up is "The 19th Wife," which I'm really looking forward to. I've also put "Into the Wilderness" on hold at the library, and that will come in soon. Somewhere in here I'm supposed to read "The Road" for my book club's December 2 meeting, too. November doesn't feel like the best time to read something so bleak, but I suppose I should do my English degree proud and read it For Literature's Sake.
I'm currently reading The Year 1000. Really entertaining NF!
