Comment on the book's cover and the title. Where is Wodge's Rock?

I love the play on words, metaphors and interesting descriptions.
p. 109 Description of Ms. O's hair: never met a comb long enough to become acquainted. Bottom of p. 104 He'd decided Lord Batty was unique. Unique and confused. Confused and extremely entertaining. A grand new friend to have-if they ever saw him again. p. 103 It was all very wrong, but still rather clever!

What is the main theme of the book?

Why do you think the author refers to Helli as a Guide to extending living and loving?

p. 20Piper McTavish plays his bagpipes and a succession of pipers convey the message of Helli's escape. How would you describe bagpipe music? Is this a difficult instrument to play? Can music convey meaning and or a message? What is the significance of the sweet sound?
