Saw the movie and enjoyed that but found the book a bit of a challenge. A bit hard to get into it at the beginning but I decided to slug it out and finally got hauled into the story. Very enjoyable if you can get past the start of it.

1. When you receive the book, make a journal entry so we all get the thrill of knowing where it's at.

2. Send a private message (PM) to the next person in line for their address. If they do not respond within three days, PM them again. If they do not respond within a week of your first message, PM the person after them and contact me.

3. Read the book, within 30 days, and make a journal entry to tell us what you have thought about the book. You can be as brief or as lengthy as you wish with your thoughts about the book.

Please remember, that there are many anxious readers patiently waiting to read the book after you. Please bear this in mind! If you tend to be a slow reader, like myself, and need the month to finish the book, please make a periodic journal entry indicating how far you are into the story, or thoughts about what you have read so far. This way we know that the book has not been forgotten in your ‘to-be-read’ pile.

4. When you are ready to send the book to the next person in line, make release notes/a journal entry to say when the book is leaving your hands and who'll be catching it next, and pop it into the post!

5. To the last person on the list you get to do whatever you want with the book, but I would suggest you read and release it.

Recieved in the post today. A book I've heard about and thought I'd try to read. I'll be interested in the discription of the lanscape, as people always say Canada looks sort of like New Zealand.

Finally got around to reading this book while I was on holiday over Summer. I had intended to take it just to release; instead I read it and loved it. The book is so evocative that the lack of believable characters is irrelevant.

I've leant it to my dad who is a net-maker, thinking he might enjoy the knot references. He has seen the film but didn't really enjoy it but assumed the novel would be better. I hope he enjoys it.
