What I did want to say was that the last statement might mean that Jose Arcadio Segundo is dead too, and like his great grandfather and Melquiades his ghost still lives in the house. What I don't get is how the people at the places where he stopped along the way from the train saw him, talked to hi...

Hello ladies, I thought I'd pop in and say hi. Hi and welcome, Verity. I do hope you'll join our RC discussion. Feel free to post on old threads. There are spoiler threads for each book for the TLC. HoN is not being discussed in the Lymond book forums, but there are threads on HoN Forums where you c...

I just finished Sweet Tooth a few moments ago. I listened to Juliet Stevenson's narration. I'm looking forward to the discussion.

Thank you Naomi for your thorough summary. I wish I had time to reread these wonderful chapters and our threads. So much going on. I'm so glad we are reading this classic. Latin American Lit is so very rich. I enjoyed reading this chapter. Amaranta's shroud activity and her generous act of taking me...

Thanks for another wonderful summary and questions, Lady Jayne. Nicely done. Do you agree that William deserves an explanation about how he came to be? Should Jamie have told William he was blackmailed into sleeping with Geneva so his son could better understand the nature of Jamie’s forced relation...

Then we will go on to Niccolò to continue.....And finally, unless we want to reverse it and place that before HoN, King Hereafter. I'm excited to read about the historical Macbeth! DLT, people view KH as DD's masterpiece.

Thanks for the summary, Lady Jayne. Wonderful questions. (I'm not sure I have answers.) All nicely presented, as always. It does sound as if Amaranthus is being held against her will and not being too well treated. The slattern would suggest some sort of identity fraud to extort some money from the ...

Ladies, I hope you get all the energy you need to resolve the moving--with some breaks in between for reading. :)

Group reads are so enriching and everyone's comments have enriched my understanding of TLC.

Thank you for your continued participation. :hug:

Wonderful summary Lady Jayne. I think you covered all the events. Some thoughts: José Arcardio going off to the seminary and Úrsula's hopes are that he will be Pope: the trunk looking as a coffin is a dire image. The anticlerical sentiment is high. The liberals are always anti-church. Many priests a...

Besides, I've just bought the first Niccolo, I hope one day we'll get to a reading group of that too!! I loved Niccolo. I foresee we will continue after Lymond. :lol: I'm thinking about how to approach the "What Lymond Read" forum. I think it might be more fruitful to read a chapter of sa...

"They (the mutes) were pulling Gabriel's body away: the eyes, the blue of Kuzúm's or the blue of Khaireddin's, were open and vacant". (PiF, chapter 21, page 446 @kindle) and it may be authorial voice too. Wow, isn't it amazing how much difference it makes when " or " is used ins...
