I know an interesting variation on this. Glyn Parry was to visit my
daughter's school and I told her it was polite to have read one of his
books beforehand. I bought her MOSH and she settled down with it. 

20 mins later, she handed it to me. 'Read it,' she said.

I read the first 10 pp or so.

'What does it all mean?' she asked.

Well, I didn't know and I still don't. 

Tegan went to hear Glyn Parry do his talk and came home beaming. 'He's
*much* better than his books!' she said...
