I'm delurking for a minute to jump in here.
I first discovered DWJ through a friend of mine--we both love a lot of the
same books and trade books and suggestions a lot. Anyway, when we were in
fifth grade, (about 11 years ago), she read Fire and Hemlock and then
brought it to me to read. I read it twice, cover to cover, and still felt
I must be missing something...but I was intrigued. Soon after that, the
same friend discovered five other DWJ's and brought those to me, too. I
was instantly hooked with the opening passage of Dogsbody, and a permanent
DWJ fan after finishing that book, LOCC, Howl, Charmed Life, and Archer's
Goon. I remember all these intense philosophical letters we wrote and
discussions we had over those books. I think we were both convinced DWJ
was in on some big "secret" of the universe. As long as we were enjoying
Unfortunately, we quickly exhausted the small supply of DWJ we could get in
braille or on tape (we're both blind)...until a few years ago when Hexwood
suddenly appeared, followed by several others...of course I was
ecstatic. :-) I've always been meaning to reread F&H and hopefully get a
more complete idea of that story...maybe something to finally do this summer?
Well, I guess that's it for me at the moment. Everyone have a great day.
