>>That should take care of it.)
>Now don't say that! That's where I met him for the first time! Have
>you seen "Dark City"?
No, but obviously I may have to!
>Oh I loved "Cold Comfort Farm" - "There's always been a Starkadder . . . ."
We have "There'll be no butter in Hell" and "I saw something nasty in
the woodshed" written on the bathroom wall.
>Is the book as good as the film?
The book is much, much better than the film! Now there's a statement
I won't be able to defend. :) It is hilarious, though, and one huge
advantage to it is being able to appreciate the dialect and invented
words - sometimes it was just hard to distinguish the words in the
film. Oh, and the bits that are marked as specially literarily
valuable - well, you should read it. And btw, the book was a list
recommendation for us too. Another important life addition rec.
