The only person I know who's read that book hated it, but she doesn't like to read anything, so it may not be a fair comparison. :)

Of course it's fair, it's a terrible book made all the more terrible because we're raped into reading it.

CW. It's a long ways away. But the weather should be good enough in Gotham for moving images to be captured.

BArbara, thanks for the warning about the Melanie Rawn books. I don't know if I'll have the desire or patience to read all six with so many other books out there clamoring for attention. :)

I TRIED to read one of her books. Couldn't get more than about 150 pages in.

When I first picked it up I even told Dave I wasn't sure I liked it. AT some point it grabbed me hard though and I couldn't stop. :)

I suppose I never got to that point. It bored the hell outta me. :)

You didn't read one of the dragon ones, you read one of the Exiles ones. I like her writing, but it is rather wordy and character-intensive.

In other news, I bought the book Galileo's Daughter the other day.....it looks interesting, and I'll let you guys know what I think when I'm done.
It's apparently a series of letters between Galileo and his daughter, who was a nun, and some research and study about them.

Exiles, dragons, whatever. She still, IMO, sucked. :)

Non-fiction or fiction, Baf? I'm always lookingfor new stuff to read.

That sounds really fascinating Barbara. Keep us posted.
I am just really glad to be reading again. The first two years of Olivia's life I just didn't get to it and would fall asleep whenever I picked up a book. Boy did I miss it!

Galileo's Daughter? I'm *pretty* sure it's non-fiction....let me go check.

Non-fiction. It's supposedly (according to the dust jacket) a biography of her, with the letters forming a central part of it. The book is by Dava Sobel, if you're interested. It's pretty new...still in hardback, came out right before Christmas.

Ah. I'll waittil paperback, then. My local library suks, otherwise I'd get it from them. I'm aboutto go on a Pratchett/Sayers reading binge. My 2 booklists are starting new books on Tuesday, and the Pratchett one I've never read. And the Sayers one I haven't read in 6 months or so.

I haven't read Pratchett, but I loved Adams, so maybe I should.

Adams & Pratchett (and Anthony on rare occasion) are SO funny that I have to put down the book.

Ook.
