Topic: just finished my second read of CITY AT THE END OF TIME

Greg:

Not as much note taking this time, until the last fifty pages or so, which on the first read were so gripping that I could not take notes.

This may in fact be your best writing to date. The beauty of the prose blows me away at time, similar but different to what Durrell does to me.

Now to let it all percolate thru my gray matter for a few more days, and "REALLY" write about what you have done here.

As I was half way thru it this time, the realization hit me "Damn...this is the book I wish I had written, or could write."

Not too late, Mike. Apply pen to paper... and start sweating blood like the rest of us scribblers!

Mmmm, I sometimes come across something similar with music. 'This is the kind of music I would like to hear, and hence create, but now I don't have to cos someone else did.' Heh. So a little different.
