Just read first 5 or so chapters to kids on the 2 hour trek up to Dubai (the wonder of not getting car sick in a country where the roads are flat and oh so smooth!). Utter silence as they listened intently all the way. Off to a good start then!

And 30 pages in and im already sick of her going on about being a law school drop out. I heard you the first time. It's not self deprecating if you mention it every other page - it kind of comes across as "I'm too good for law school" instead of the other way around.

Okay well after a cracker introduction Leto has fallen back several notches after revealing her research has clearly been confined to the very limited reach of her own experience. Chapter 2 bookshelf of the vanities: Is unable to identify, let alone interpret the book shelves of anyone over the age of 25 - "Soccer mom" and "dorky dad" notwithstanding.

"In a distant time, before history marched over the hills and shattered present and future, before the wind grabbed the land at one corner and shook it of its name and character, before Amal was born, a small village east of Haifa lived quietly on figs and olives, open frontiers and sunshine" - now THAT's how you start a novel people.

Reading this with Cormac. Finally, someone wants to help me answer the big questions without reference to religion. Here's some of what's listed in the contents page: "Who was the first person", "when and how did everything begin" and "why do bad things happen" (..to good people??). Looking forward to this one.

"Not cold so much as underoxygenated", I said.
"I love it when you talk medical to me", he said. He stood, and pulled me up with him, and did not let go of my hand until we reached the stairs.
...aawww shucks, am feeling a bit kindly towards these guys already.

Reading Sebastian Faulks is like coming home after wandering aimlessly in the desert. The comfort food of books
