WILD RELEASE NOTES:

The waiter invited me to my black tea. Should I go there every day? A pity it is so far away. Returning to the topic, a great book. It is an original reading with a humourous feel to it, which made me not to take it entirely seriously.

I spent a couple of days in London and included Tapping the admiral because of the obzc and because it seemed a nice place to have lunch. And it was! I took this book home to the Netherlands and left two at the obcz.

Will read this book and release it again, somewhere...

My friend said: I liked the book, it is funny but you have to know something about the Greek mythology to really appreciate it.

The book is now back at my place.
