Got this in the mail today. Thanks, RaftQueen! Having checked with pgsahm as regards the 'A' is for Alibi bookring, I will probably not wait for it to get into the series. A slim book that I'd probably best read parallelly to the beautiful hardcover edition of Jack Faust. I won't take the latter with me on public transport.

A quick read, and a good one, too. The only thing that seems a bit odd is the lack of more modern information/telecommunication technology. Every now and then you wait for the private investigator to use the Internet or a mobile phone (or even a PC instead of a typewriter), but this book dates back to the middle of the 80s… Recommendable nonetheless.

Just finished A and reading J, but then I will go back to B again, because it's on a bookray. A was a bit boring, J is definetly better and I hope improvement will start already with B for better :-)
Thanks Frank-63. 


Journal Entry 14 by Buecher-Eule from Schwaikheim, Baden-Württemberg Germany on Thursday, June 12, 2003

It's much better than A, so if improvement will go on at this rate - beware of Z ;-)

It's on it's way to Muffin77 with the Deutsche Bundespost.

Enjoy!

JAAAAA - es ist daaaaaaa (wurde soeben mit der 2. Unipostfuhre geliefert =:o))!!!! Werde noch heute anfangen, es zu lesen und dann so schnell wie möglich, dem lieben Prospero in die Hand drücken....

-----

EDIT: Why did I post my journal entry in German?????? I really don't know why I did it - anyway, it said that the book is with me and as of today (June 18th) I am a bit more than halfway through... it is A LOT better than "A is for Alibi" - I hope to finish soon so the travel can continue... =:o)

So I finished the book (finally) - and I must say, it was really MUCH better than "A is for Alibi" - the first book she has written. Towards the end her books get really good - but in between they are a bit boring...
-----
I will either give it to Prospero personally tomorrow - or if he doesn't come to the Café I will have to meet him another day.

Pretty dumb - mais c'est la vie - I send the book via German Postal Service (give your best!!!!) to Prospero. Although we live in the same city I have no time to meet him and hand him the book personally (which would be the much safer way!!!). Good luck little book!!!!

Love Kinsey in all the books. Great to go back to the beginning and get the history. This was a great mystery. Kept me guessing almost as long as it kept Kinsey guessing. Very enjoyable read. Thanks for starting the ray, Herrundmeyer! I will try to get this out in the mail Monday. I'm on vacation, but should be able to find a post office anyway!
