Tamahome Away wi' you man! (Did I sound Geordie? Maybe you can do the review in a Geordie dialect.)

Luke Burrage I'm really not good at accents.

Tamahome Aww, crap on it!

Luke Burrage You listened to the book too?

Tamahome No, reading paper or kindle. But they use those phrases a lot. No more 'Jesus wept' like in the Mandel books. How's the accents in the audiobook?

Tamahome Ever read Hamilton's YA book, Lightstorm?

Nope. It never interested me at the time, and I forgot about it since then.

message 10: by M (new) - rated it 5 stars

M years back I glanced into a Hamilton book and didn't like it, and somehow never considered him again.
Then I listened to Luke's review of Great North Road and just finished reading one of the best SciFi books I've ever read (and I have read loads). Thanks so much for that review :)
