I just wanted to say thank you so much for creating both darwin's radio and the sequel, they are undoubtedly the best books I have ever read. The one problem is I tend to get obsessed with characters and there tales, so much so that I feel physically sick because I can't conceptualize not being apart of there world, especially so with these books. I was once on the bus reading Darwin's Children when I felt like I was being physically sucked into the book which as you can imagine was a bit scary but also dissapointing when I recaptured my handle on reality. I just wanted you to know how much I love your characters and your mind and thank you for being born. :)
p.s even though the genre of these books was different, I was more compelled and connected to kaye, mitch, stella and the world they populated more then any of the harry potter/lord of the rings books. Thanks again.
