Has there been discussion of DWJ's newest book already?
I don't think so, Widdy. I've just started reading it myself so I'm ready to hear what everyone else thinks. Here are my initial thoughts.
I'll put in a spoiler gap, but really since my comments are only on the first few pages, you won't learn anything you wouldn't want to by reading them.
First thoughts - I *do* like the dedication :-)
And I like the opening chapters. As usual with DWJ the information we are given is just enough to keep us wanting more.
I also like Andrew and Stashe (sp? I don't have my copy with me at the moment) and Aidan. Prefer Mr Stock to Mrs Stock, but that might be because I like Tarquin and Mr S gets a bit of that liking reflected onto him. Haven't really seen much of Sean yet so don't have an opinion there.
I look forward to reading what others think.
