And we finished it! My third time through the books and goodness knows which time for Stephen, but it was such a delightful trip and now I'm rather sad it's over. Truly one of the best works of fiction in English - it manages at the same time to have vibrant characters, an epic plot, and some truly beautiful (if dense) language.
