That's terrible!  There were a ton of reviews for _The Thief_ posted 
and one of them gave the whole story away - I read it after reading 
the book or would have been completely disgusted.  But Ros, I am the 
wimpiest reader in the world*, and I still LOVED TQoA to pieces. 
Becca was horrified at this part and made me read the end to tell her 
if she was going to be able to stand it, and she loved it as well. It 
comes right near the beginning and I'd strongly advise not cooking 
dinner while you read it - maybe you can declare an "everyone get 
sambos for themselves for dinner and read night" and you could read 
it in one go!  :)

*Becca just reminded me to mention that I still haven't managed the 
courage to read _Doomsday Book_ yet, despite her prodding me for 
about 3 years.  Thanks, honey!
