    So glad you like it - make sure to read the index.
    Are you talking about the MILD SPOILER missing story? It was funny cos I wanted to read about that guy all the way through. I hope I haven't missed anything cos I loaned it to a friend who was intrigued by my laughing so much at the Pennington/Fearnsby story.

    Reading my sixth form copy of Regeneration, complete with unenlightening annotations scrawled in black biro. I'm enjoying it, and wondering if I should read the whole trilogy. I think it's the 'contemporary' novel I've most enjoyed reading since I read another historical novel written by a female writer - Wolf Hall. Not sure if that's just happenstance.

    Also taking the odd glance at Blake's Songs of Innocence and Experience, which I've never really understood the magic of - but I believe it's dawning on me, slowly.

    I've just finished The Man Who was Thursday; went in expecting a pretty dry, old-fashioned spy story and was pleasantly surprised to find it closer in tone to something like The Third Policeman.

    Also his Father Brown books are good. Some stories are better than others of course but the good ones have some very clever mysteries with nicely satisfying solutions.

    There's the acrostic in the poem towards the end and also a specific index entry which sheds new light on an important relationship in the book. I too have lent my copy to a friend so i can't reference it specifically.
