Talk about damning with faint praise. I have to say Rebecca and Emma's
recommendations have done anything but inspire me to have another look
at Carmody's books - I did try once, and found them unreadable. I found
her writing style very irritating; I hate it when you feel like the
writer is waving flags to get your attention on the way they write in
every sentence.
