Read in March, 2007

Another intensely pleasing installment, a little quieter than a lot of the novels, but still full of the same wonderful dialogue and character interaction. I will admit to sniffling just a little over the scenes between Stephen and Brigid at the beginning; my heart broke for him, as it did frequently throughout the rest of the novel, when he seemed so likely to give into depressed spirits and to drugs. Not a happy book for either of the boys, really, though I trust most of it will be resolved. How does one spell 'peccavi', Jack, indeed.
