All of that looks fucking excellent.   I like charred broccoli - tastes great!
 Well there were breaks in the book - blank pages that signaled the end and the beginning of things, but actually no, not particularly. Retrospectively, even, I can see a three clear changes, but not four. Go figure! GF: I haven't! I've got Year of the Flood and Madaadam to read, though!
[[SPOILER]]  29. Heart Goes Last An Atwood novel that felt like a clumsy Polanski film. Novel largely is about male-female social roles, but while there was much Atwood said the minor characters, in particular, was so bizarre and unweildy that the novel's surprises fell flat and everything felt like a C-grade movie.
I've heard only good things - think that's the gf's favourite book/author - should rent from the library.

They are considered to be as good, if not better, than Guidi. Never heard a bad thing. A couple of blokes over in SWD have some.   Many of his designs are really top notch and seemed to be copied/interpreted by other designers.
