Actually a while back I got about 80 pages into it and haven't gotten back, since. So I've set it aside for now. It is good but quite dense, so there is the need to "pay attention" and/or take it in small chunks. I like Frayn, though, both for fiction and nonfiction.

Annabelle, you are the most prolific reader I know. If you get a chance check out Joel C. Rosenberg'a books. The Last Jihad, The Last Days,The Ezekiel Option, The Copper Scroll and Dead Heat. I thought they were great but then again I thought Stranger in a strange land was good. Also could you please email your Mom and Dads phone number so we could call. Tito Andy

Now that is really something, referring to what you said about Edith Hamilton's "Mythology."
I have books on mythology, but I must go and order this now.
Keep me posted on securing a copy of Keeper of Secrets...Translations of an Incident. I definitely want to hear your thoughts.
Have a wonderful day. Meeting and learning about you has certainly blessed mine.
You have a wonderful and enlivening shelf--and a penchant for books that are turned into movies--and a lot of Mary Higgins Clark. Can't say I've read much of her. But I see that you , like me, have a love for Gabriel Garcia Marquez and have read his "Of Love and Other Demons."
Please check out my book shelf and if so inclined, my website. I'd love for you to read my book, "Keeper of Secrets...Translations of an Incident." and hear your thoughts.
Take care. It's good to have you as a friend.
Have a wonderful and BLESSED day.
