I am currently reading my way through a long list of science fiction and fantasy titles. (http://www.npr.org/2011/08/07/138938145/science-fiction-and-fantasy-finalists if you are interested in the list).
Hoping I can finish this book tonight. It's due on Friday and I will be out to the theatre on Thursday night (to see As You Like It). Now that I've put in this much time, getting to the end is starting to feel rather necessary!
I heard the author, Zadie Smith, give a lecture at our university two weeks ago and now I can hear her lovely voice, telling me the story in my mind's ear.
177 pages to go.
