it was amazing
bookshelves: mystery
Read in July, 2004

yet another re-read -- i was in a lousy mood, and needing something completely gripping -- something that would pull my into its world and not leave me half thinking about mine. and, for me, this book does exactly that. it's only my 2nd reading but ever since kcobweb used it to introduce me to the Wimsey series ages ago, it's been on my favorites list. it's got Oxford (one of my homes away from home) as a setting, it's got more Harriet than Peter, it's got logic warring with emotion -- what in this doesn't appeal to me?
