Finished the audiobook of Tigana by Guy Gavriel Kay, and now I'm about to start Goldenhand by Garth Nix.

Hahaha, Tigana has a special place for me...it took me about 10 years to read it. I could never get past the first 100 pages.

When I eventually did, I loved the rest of the book, but those first 100 pages were awful. Very Happy

I like a book that grabs you right off the bat .. I weary if it is sluggish ..

It's probably easier to get through stuff on audio, as long as the narrator is good. I can't say I found them all that bad.
I thought Tigana was a good book, but there are a number of small things in there - particularly relating to sex, but not just that - which give me reservations.

Honestly can't remember it that well, and due to my difficulties, I've never dared attempt a re-read. Very Happy

On another topic, I'm really surprised that they're not making a TV series out of these "Folly" books (the series I'm re-reading) yet. Think it would work brilliantly. (I wouldn't watch it, but I'm sure it would be successful.)

Not even close. Ben Aaronovitch, British police procedural / magical realism. Funny too.

Works pretty well. Very Happy

Read Moon Over Soho this weekend, now I'm on Whispers Underground. Guess I'll be reading the whole series. Very Happy
