It gets an unequivocal thumbs-up from this otter. Definitely. No
When I read it the first time, I did not find it particularly slow.
I don't seem to have the energy to reread it in its entirety often ....
trying to remember if I've reread the whole thing ever and I _think_ I
have, but not lately. So as soon as I've finished rereading _Good
Omens_, I think I'll take it on.
I have no idea whether being born and brought up in the NE USofA
helps. I suspect it does.
I like _Engine Summer_ a lot, too. And _Beasts_, which I _have_ reread
in the last couple of years. A couple of years ago I had a Crowley fit
bought one or two newer ones, but I didn't get around to them while the
fit was on, and they're waiting for me still.
[Speaking of rereading, I went to the public library lately, and have
finished their copy of _The Satanic Mill_ by Otfried Preussler.]

you'll become a general; if you become a monk,
you'll end up as the pope." Instead, I became a
painter and wound up as Picasso.
