@rustoryhuf thank you for sending me this amazing book. I read March by John Lewis at the beginning of the year and this is a great book to go along with the graphic novels Rep. Lewis wrote.

Pogue @Sace @BarbaraTheBibliophage @HerDarkHuntress1 @Jas16 we got internet back today, and we have had people who were evacuated staying with us. I need a long nap, and an adult beverage. The fire is 30% contained and at 78,000 acres. Maybe, I need a cry too. 1mo
HerDarkHuntress1 @Pogue Oh wow! I had a few friends come from out there over the weekend and they didn‘t even seem worried. Probably cuz they drove with they life possessions! I‘m glad you have internet back. Silver lining??? (edited) 1mo
HerDarkHuntress1 @Pogue I can‘t even imagine how you are feeling right now. I hope that you remain safe and that you have time for your cry and adult beverage. 1mo

It was short kind of predictable but not bad. I would not say this is a pick as I will probably never read it again.

LibrarianRyan I thought the same thing. I really wanted more. I wanted to know why this place had all the statuary. And what was going on. It really felt half formed. 2mo
Pogue @LibraryRyan It really did. For me there were a lot of unanswered questions. Ones I would have liked to have known about. Also what happened to Albert? (edited) 2mo

I have heard people say this book was funny, or as engaging as Huck Finn. I thought it was ok, I am not a big fan of westerns, not was I a big fan of Huck Finn.

OMG this was the most erotic book I have read. The relationship with Hero and Houndstooth made me sweat and it was not at all graphic! Just hot. I loved this book.
