09/01/2012 "A challenge: I want to see if I can get through this 500-page beast in 2 or 3 days. Among other reasons, I feel I must read it before Will Self's 'Umbrella' as it seems like similar territory."
09/01/2012 ""Now [the pub's] upper floors were tramped by noisy bearded lads in check shirts who sang about cities never seen, cottonfields they could barely imagine, railway companies whose names they confused with rivers." Americana-loving hipsters: invading old-men's pubs in London since 1957."

42.0% "Generally this is an excellent book. But Mrs Gasalee, though described by other characters as "a woman of substance" and so forth, has a personality that seems to disappear into thin air.
Are female characters not Moorcock's strong point?
(It would have been too hard to write that without the hint of smutty pun...)" 6 comments
