really liked it

I'm only halfway through, but I've learned that Frasier is quite the madman, full of pop culture references (almost more fun now that they're outdated), unapologetically letting Flashman run wild through his books. I've heard that there are objections to Flashman's total lack of moral compass, but that's also his charm. Absolute rogue, he, and I love him for it.

His "The Pyrates" is similar, but with even less of a fourth wall. Um, I should add that, since it's also currently being read. By me. Possibly by more than just me, but I'm the only one I care about. And you, obviously. And several other people, but I won't tell them if you don't.

Ok, that's done.
