    where's my book!?! it's an interesting idea but they should follow it up with maybe a discussion with the author or something otherwise people are unlikely to make much use of the opportunity

    I finished it whilst away last week and thought it was rather good. Definitely very different to the usual read.

    If I remember correctly, they are having some sort of discussion group on it, and the author is visiting the Uni in October?

    Oh gosh, I saw this book in the charity shop and started to read the first few pages, didn't realise it was supposed to be so good! Might have to go back and try and find it, the first few pages certainly seemed interesting to me.

    If it's any consolation, it doesn't take long to read at all. I got it today, and i'm almost finished it having not been focussing on it that much.
