Bought 14 Sep 2005 – Waterstones (signed by author)

Matt and I read this together – our first experiment doing this. We read a chapter or two at a time, usually me reading first as I fall asleep earlier than he does. Although it was a bit odd, reading a book so slowly, it was interesting and we had a good discussion about it throughout the process and at the end.

I’m still not sure what I thought of this. It didn’t quite live up to expectations, although interesting commentary on politics and ideology, I think. Also a close descendant of Lodge and Bradbury’s campus novels, an aspect which I enjoyed. She does plot better than she does musings…
