Vic: I want to hear your version of the "plot".

After taking lots of notes to keep the characters straight, and after getting halfway through it, I realized, as one does in the midst of a story, what it is all about. It is all about getting this body to the right place, and all the misfortune these poor people are suffering for their efforts. It seemed funny at times, though I am not sure it was supposed to, or if that was just my way of reacting to such trials.

I look forward to rereading it in a few months.

While away I organized all my books. Now all the novels are more or less together and in alphabetical order! What are we reading next?
