But David lives in the outback in Australia (behind the beyond where few men have gone behind, beyond, before [grin]) ... so the post is a little more (kangaroo mail doesn't come cheap [grin])

Hmm ... $6.50 including shipping on Amazon. Doesn't sound too excessive to me.

If the worst comes to the worst (by which I mean no luck at the library), email me at max@CliveMaxfield.com and I'll send my copies via the post for you to borrow.

I have visions of what's going to happen. I'll go in there with a list of all the books you've reviewed and they'll be tearing their hair out! But I'll give it a go and let you know how I go if I get any of them.

Hi there -- you might want to check with your library anyway -- if I request a book from my local library and they don't have it, they will borrow it from another library (it works amazingly well really).

Most half-decent books deserve to be read multiple times. You don't buy a CD and just listen to it once, do you? What I hate about your book reviews, Clive, is that I am on such a tight budget that I can't afford them. I'll try my local library but I suspect that your taste and theirs are not quite the same.... But keep them up. If nothing else I can read vicariously through your reviews.....

If you've read this book I'd love to hear what you think. Also, I'm always interested in your recommendations for other "good reads"...
