Jane Matteis All family in Japan ok, I hope. Thinking of you and your family.

Ken-ichi The immediate family are all in the US at the moment, still waiting to hear from cousins and uncles (through Dad). I believe most of them are still in the Osaka area, though, which wasn't hit anything like Sendai.

Magdelanye Not sure why this cropped up now in my inbox-well Ian liked it, so I read your review just now and need to tell you how much I like your criteria, although there is another range of emotions that could be placed in either camp, that's books that make you want to kick in walls.

I had decided to give VthGS a miss, did not get caught up in the hype, in fact I thought it went on overlong, and was not particularly inspired or motivated by any of the reviews. Your review has put it on my portable list.
Thanks Ken-Ichi

Ken-ichi Cool! The power of goodreads. For what it's worth, my mom thought it was lame, so there's definitely a range of responses.

Magdelanye ah, lame, I had heard that
and I am probably closer in experience to your mom!
