Last evening I started reading [Jane Eyre]. :-)

To avoid further hijacking Clam's thread I thought I would drop you a note here. I could say, "I hope you do not mind", but since I will not know whether you will mind or not until after I have written the note and you have responded, your minding or not will not have an impact on whether or not I leave the note, hence writing, "I hope you do not mind", would appear to be rather redundant, so here goes.

"Goods Omens" was a Christmas present I received many years ago and I loved it. The first Discworld novel I read was "Wyrd Sisters". It was recommended to me by a friend who is now the editor of Collins Press in Cork (Ireland). I found it very funny, especially when the Shakespearean references appeared. The only other discworld novel I have read was "The Fifth Elephant" which did not impress me much at all.

I will have to read your review later.

Keep well.

I'll be interested in your further observations. I didn't, of course, claim that the Innes book necessarily fulfilled all your criteria, but your perceptive remarks certainly helped focus my thoughts.

I don't know what "headed to Malice" means, but I hope it isn't as bad as it sounds.

Hi--I quoted you twice in my most recent review, here:
You're the second person to recommend Cover Her Face this morning, so I'll pick that one! Thanks for taking the time to go through the books for me!
