I didn't like _Sabriel_ the first time I tried it.  I was virtually 
certain it was just a mood thing even at the time, and sure enough, I 
loved it later.  Completely different experience with _Lirael_, but 
other than being relieved that I haven't been turfed out of here for 
not liking it, I haven't the energy to say anything else.
