Read in September, 2007

On page 328 a (what I hoped was minor) subplot grabbed my suspension of disbelief and threw it out the bar window. Subplot angled itself toward the exit and thrust open the louvered, slightly squeaky doors. It walked over to Suspension chuckling mildly, the spurs on its boots clinking in what would've been a merry way had it not been so ominous. Subplot wedged one spurred boot's tip under Suspension's still sprawling figure, flipped it over onto its back and rested the boot on its chest. Gazing coldly into Suspension's eyes, Subplot drew its six-shooter and emptied it into Suspension's face before striding calmly back into the bar.


And yet, it was still compelling enough to finish and pick up the next in the series to read next, hence the three stars.

Zildjean If only Holmes had been there to stop the violence! But alas, he was over in France or somewhere while our "Mary Sue" grew ever more intelligent and beloved and accomplished.
