Okay, half way through and it's actually picking up a bit. It's not anywhere near his best, but I'm not grimacing when picking it up. Smile

I switched to Hogfather and I'm much happier!

I'm pleased to say, I actually enjoyed it by the end. :-)

I bought A Blink Of The Screen to put in my own stocking (kidlet requires that I have a stocking, and it has to have something more than a walnut and a satsuma in it). I'm looking forward to it.

I finished it and that's really about the best I can say for it.

There was quite an interesting outline of a decent book in there, but it was all bound together with monotony and confusion.

A long time ago after my mum had her stroke I stopped at the grocery store and asked if she wanted anything she said she wanted a 'six-pack' (American term for six cans of beer, if anyone doesn't know) and I asked her why, because she doesn't drink beer. And she just kept repeating herself and the look of frustration on her face made it seem evident that she was so sure that she was making sense and I was deliberately getting it wrong. We argued a bit, I eventually gave up, got the groceries and brought her home. Where she told my dad she wanted 'a six-pack' and he told me, 'she wanted bananas' and mum yelled 'YES'!

How he knew she wanted bananas I'll never know. Though there were times after that that I knew what she wanted when he was frustrated and confused.

It seems that this is one book that has left me frustrated and confused. And sad that there was obviously something trying to be communicated and I just didn't get it.
