Allison (tethys) | 82 comments I just started reading this one! I could pause and restart in a few weeks. Mind if I join in on the read-along?

November Is Nyarlathotep The Haunted Reading Room (hauntedreadingroom) | 3 comments Just joined. I have all 3 books in the series, but I haven't read any, so I'll race to read Book 1 & 2 so as to be ready for Book 3. (I don't yet have The Sparrow so I'll be lurking on that read along.) Point of info: I found this group from Dear Geek Place, which I discovered from The Little Red Reviewer.

Hello, and welcome! (Dear Geek Place is me, hi hi!)

And goodness, that's ambitious! :D If it helps, reading book 2 before book 3 isn't strictly necessary - the two books are set in the same story universe, but aren't connected by plot or character. Book 3's timeline follows from the events in Book 1 and mentions some of its plot though, so that's the only one you might HAVE to read first. Up to you, though! We're happy to have you. :D


November Is Nyarlathotep The Haunted Reading Room (hauntedreadingroom) | 3 comments Hi, Lisa! Thanks for the information; I'll endeavor to at least get Book 1 sorted this week, then, and start on Book 3.

OK! Week 1's questions are under the spoiler cut - sorry they're a bit late!

November Is Nyarlathotep The Haunted Reading Room (hauntedreadingroom) | 3 comments I read Long Way on Monday and Tuesday, and commenced Record immediately after. Initially I was disappointed not to continue the voyages of the Wayfarer immediately, as I was so enthralled. But despite that, Record is also engrossing (just a little less so far, possibly because we are switching viewpoints really fast and there isn't yet (for me anyway) that foundational cord binding the storylines. I almost wish the Sawyer viewpoint had begun a little later. I quite like the Kip segments, though. (I still want to know what happened to the discordant Toremi who fired on the Wayfarer! And about the new improved Corbin, and the altered Ohan, and Rosemary & Sixitt.

OK, an update on this week's questions: Jorie and I had planned to switch hosting duties for this week but unfortunately Jorie has had to pull out of the read-along for personal reasons, so I am hoping to get through the reading and have some questions up by tomorrow, for posting/discussion over the weekend. Apologies for any inconvenience, and hopefully next week will go a bit more smoothly.
