I was a bit confused when I got the book from the library, as its sticker said "biography" but it read as a self portrait. I guess the library deems it as written by someone else, unless biographies and autobiographies are lumped in the same group? Yes, Biographies and autobiographies/mem...

Thanks Vala for the idea of Amaranthus as the will-o-the-wisp. I hadn't thought of that. Arguably, Fanny - whom William encountered in a marshy area - could be a will-o-the-wisp in that she lured William off his intended path to Saperville and back to Savannah where he found Hal and John. I also lik...

This is my second time through and I still found listening to the scenes in the tunnels pretty baffling. Thanks for laying things out for us pagali. And, I can say that Yes, I was surprised that OZ was working for GRM the whole time when I first listened to this book. I didn't have the benefit of in...

As a kind of general statement, I also love all the scenes of John with babies and small children. He's so good with them even though he never had his own offspring and didn't become William's step-father until William was 6. One that comes to mind is in LJ and the Succubus when he meets the young s...

Also I loved her remark to Fernanda about people who can't stand the smell of their own s**t. Anam, since you're reading it in Spanish you're probably curious how they put that in the English translation. It's pretty funny: "Thifisif ifisif onefos ofosif thofosif whosufu cantantant statantand ...

I haven't managed to read much at all over the past several days (I was out of town with my daughters Fri/Sat and so completely exhausted Sunday that I didn't accomplish much of anything and there is some other stuff going on in my Real Life). But, I really do love the book any time I do manage to r...

Oh, yes. Dismal certainly. It was the specific number seven that wasn't in the English version. And, it also mentions pleasant changes along with unpleasant ones and nostalgia, so it's not all bad. At least how I listened to and read it.

We were told in the previous chapter that Ursula had turned 100, which means she must be about 110 or so now, right? That means that CAB and Amaranta must not be spring chickens either. I can't believe that no one knew that Rebeca was still alive and in the house. I mean she and her maid must have g...

It's hard to pick a favorite scene, since I really adore Lord John. But, just to get it started here are a couple: When Jamie offers John his body at Helwater to thank him for taking care of young William, John laughs so hard that he falls to the ground and then comments (and I'm badly paraphrasing ...
