This book had me intrigued from page one. Scaryily I fear that the topic of the book may become reality some time in the future. Saving to take to the BC meet up at salcey forest Northants in August.

Got it yesterday, March 1st, here in Amherst, MA. It's the next on my reading list...thanks again Karen!

Journal Entry 6 by UnwrittenLibra from Middleton, Wisconsin USA on Sunday, March 23, 2008
And...22 days later, I'm finished! (Shocking, I know, less than a month!)

This was one of those books that I didn't really get into until the last third. That's when things really started to fit together and make this a very striking work of literature. It had some undertones of The Wizard of Oz, in a sense...you'll know what I mean if you read it. This one definitely takes a lot of getting used to, but by the last chapter, I wasn't yet ready to "let it go."

Now that I'm finished, however, I'll do my best to "let it go" to the next person quickly.

Sent today via Amherst, MA to franaloe, including the first postcard diary entry for this book (keep it going!) Go book go!

Journal Entry 8 by franaloe from Utrecht, Utrecht Netherlands on Saturday, April 5, 2008
Cool, now I got the book....and realized that someone gave the exact same one to me as a present just a few days ago...Oh no! I guess I'll send this one on then, and report my findings about the book when I finish my own copy.

Thanks anyway for sending!
All the best, franaloe

Journal Entry 11 by cat207 from Gladstone, Queensland Australia on Tuesday, April 29, 2008
Read while on holiday in Athens - mostly on the bus on a day trip to Delphi.
I did enjoy it and it held my attention, but I think I've preferred his others.

Will mail back to angellica from Greece or UK before I head home.
